1958 Krisel for Sale in Ramon Rise (aka Little Beverly Hills) – Palm Springs, CA
Ramon Rise is a fantastic pocket of late 1950’s Palmer & Krisel homes in southest Palm Springs. Given the nickname of ‘Little Beverly Hills’, Ramon Rise features street named after those found in Beverly Hills – Canon Drive, Beverly Drive, Roxbury Drive and Bedford Drive, and sits on the northeast corner of the Mesquite Golf & Country Club.
This home was built in 1958 and features three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,673 square feet on a 10,400 square-foot lot with an asking price of $609,900. Situated on Compadre Road, the home actually fronts the Mesquite Golf and Country Club with fantastic views of lush fairways and Mount San Jacinto beyond. The original carport was enclosed; however a secondary covered parking structure has been added to the front of the home.
Inside the home the living room offers walls of glass looking into the private backyard. There’s a few different design styles represented within the interior of this home, which may be the reason for the length of time this property has been sitting on the market. Most of the paint, light fixtures and furniture represent modernistic styles, while the some of the darker paint colors, kitchen, bath and flooring stylistically represent southwestern, craftsman and mid-2000’s design styles.
The kitchen opens directly to the living room and the dining area features an awesome sputnik chandelier handing from those great open-beamed ceilings. The living room also features a wonderful Krisel fireplace which could significantly pop if repainted with more modernist colors. The bathrooms are semi-updated, with what looks like both 1980s and early 2000s updates. The bedrooms show dark, but could be more spacious if the heavy draperies were removed.
Out back there’s a grassy yard and the standard Alexander 15’ x 30’ swimming pool. The backyard offers lots of privacy and greenery, making it that sought-after oasis in the desert. Theres a few tweaks that could be made to the landscape, both front and back, to make this home pop and show like the mid-century modernist piece of architecture that it is. It’s a neat opportunity to own a great home in a superb location.
