This is a sweet 1958 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Ramon Rise (aka Little Beverly Hills) in Palm Springs, California. This mid-mod home has been expanded to 1,833 square feet and houses five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a two-car garage on a 10,000 square foot lot with an asking price of $629,000.
The exterior of the home has been significantly modified, with the addition of the projecting two-car garage, white vinyl windows and a heavy stucco finish added. These modifications take away from the mid-mod curb appeal that this home ordinarily would have had, and make it read more like a traditional ranch.
Inside it’s a completely different story. As one walks in through the front door the vintage kitchen greets you and takes you back to 1958. The original cabinets, pulls, range and oven appear to be in fantastic shape – check out the pegboard sliders under the kitchen sink – pure mid-mod greatness! The bathrooms are just as original, with vintage pink tubs, sinks and commodes. The living area features those signature Krisel walls of glass that surround the fireplace and overlooks the swimming pool.
Also present inside are those great open-beamed ceilings, a design feature which has also been incorporated into the additions which have been placed on the home. We love the interior of this home – lots of potential to add some color and vintage furnishings to make this home shine.
The backyard features the standard Alexander Construction Company 15’ x 30’ rectangular pool, along with a large covered patio. The vintage globe lights under the patio cover add a great mid-mod vibe to the backyard, which holds lots of patio space and a fun outdoor shower area. There’s plenty of opportunity to turn up the volume on the exterior of the home and make the mod-bones of this home really pop – hopefully the new owner will have some fun with this one & keep that kitchen!
