1958 Palmer & Krisel For Sale in Sunmor – Palm Springs, CA

Here’s a sharp 1958 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Palm Springs’ Sunmor neighborhood, built by the Alexander Construction Company. With its fantastic curb appeal, this home features three bedrooms, two bathrooms with a two-car carport, in-ground swimming pool all on an 11,700 square-foot lot with an asking price of $642,500.

Situated on a corner lot with only one neighbor, this home features a striking front yard with a floating concrete pad driveway, shady mesquite trees and a simple, low-maintenance yard area with a wonderful large accent rock and an enclosed, private front yard patio area.  Like some of the other floor plans we’ve seen in Sunmor, the entry of the home opens up into the living and dining rooms, with the kitchen tucked off and open to the dining area. The back of the home features the signature Krisel wall of glass, and provides great views of the inviting backyard. The fireplace and hearth have been reimagined, finished in a polished concrete or plaster.

The home features large slate tiles throughout, while the kitchen has been upgraded with (black and) white granite counters, backsplashes and accents and newer cabinetry. The slate carries through to the hall shower, and the master bath features the ever-popular Ikea Godmorgon bathroom vanities, a fixture which seemingly has become a stable of mid-mod renovations.

The bedrooms show light and airy, thanks in part the original open-beamed ceilings. The master features a small sitting area/office addition, which opens up onto the rear patio. The back yard features the rectangular Alexander swimming pool that was a staple of Palm Springs homes, green grass and low maintenance desert landscape. There’s plenty of patio space, both in and out of the sun, and the entire backyard is surrounded by a clean-lined metal fence.

This is a sharp home that shows light and bright, offering up many of the things we love about Palm Springs. There’s lots more photos online, check them out below:
