This is a light and bright Palmer & Krisel-designed 1963 condominium in South Palm Springs, California. Featuring 1,708 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathroom, this property sits on a tidy 3,000 square-foot lot with a one-car garage, backing up to a common greenbelt with an asking price of $429,000. This is a center unit, and there’s an land lease in place until 2080 at $3,120 per year, and monthly HOA dues of $450.
The exterior of this condominium features some fantastic small-relief shadow block, native stone work, and decorative screen block. The unit features the original front door, painted an olive green in color, which leads visitors and guests past a classic spun-aluminum dual-cone sconce inside into the open living/dining room. The living and dining area features floor to ceiling walls of south-facing glass that overlooks the backyard patio, common area greenbelt and the mountains beyond, capped with a double-vaulted ceiling topped with light-filled clerestories. This vaulted ceiling is most impressive, one that we don’t see that often in other Krisel works.
The kitchen is tucked away off of the dining area, private yet open to the living areas. There’s a skylight added for extra light, and the cabinetry is original with updated appliances. Also original are the chrome-trimmed light fixtures, both in the ceiling and beneath the cabinets. The bedrooms show roomy and bright, with the master bedroom overlooking the rear terrace. Both bathrooms are mostly original, showing clean, bright and in great condition. We love those under-mount sinks and long, mirrored medicine cabinets.
The back patio features classic Palm Springs topiary, decorative screen block, and an access gate to the common greenbelt. This is topped with commanding views of the surrounding mountains, and a covered patio featuring two ceiling fans. This is a classic Palm Springs retreat and a great example of mid-century modern architecture at its finest, with priceless views.
