1961 Butterfly Roof Krisel For Sale in Racquet Club Road Estates – Palm Springs, CA
This is a unique opportunity to own a fully furnished vacation rental Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Racquet Club Road Estates in Palm Springs. The coveted butterfly-roofed home incorporates 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1,249 square-feet on a 10,800 square-foot lot with a pool and spa.
The front features signature Krisel decorative “H”-shadow block both on the front façade and mimicked again on the entry patio/courtyard walls (which are a more recent addition). The 2-car carport has been converted to an enclosed two-car garage, helping to further contain the front patio/courtyard area.
Inside are polished concrete floors that evoke the look and feel of terrazzo. A striking fireplace forms the centerpiece of the living room – another Krisel signature – along with open wooden-beamed ceilings. Another signature – the high wall between the entry and kitchen – has been shortened and opened with glass display shelving. An oversized sliding glass door between the living area and back yard helps to blur the line between indoors and out.
There’s definitely a lot of brown in this one – in and out – for a cohesive theme for sure. These homes can take a little color if desired, but the brown keeps things generic and somewhat neutral. It might not be what everyone expects in a Palm Springs vacation rental but definately keeps things simple to appeal to a wide audience. The hall bath is fully tiled – clean and simple – and features the very popular Ikea Godmorgon floating vanity.
Out back there’s a sparkling swimming pool, covered patio and separate tiled spa. Privacy hedges are growing in and compliment the grassy area surrounding the pool. Everything is included in this one – every television, vase, dish and towel – for only $695,000.
