The Sunmor neighborhood in Palm Springs is a hotbed of sharp
and sleek renovations and restorations, and this 1958 three bedroom, two
bathroom 1,258 square-foot Krisel on a 9,500 square-foot lot is no exception. Built
by the Alexander Construction Company, this home features a two-car garage with
a sleek opaque door, while the exterior of this flat-roofed home has been tastefully
restored and modified slightly in a way that stays true to the mid-century
modern roots of the home, and has an asking price of $649,000.
The front façade of the home features Krisel’s signature
sunflaps at the eaves, modified at the bedrooms window to include slats which
let in additional light while still provide screening. The air conditioner
enclosure at the front of the home has been modified to an opaque plexiglass, complementing
the garage door in material and proportion.

True to this popular floorplan, as visitors enter the home they
are immediately greeted by walls of glass that overlook the back yard. The
interior is white on white, with white walls, open-beamed ceilings and floors,
true to the Palm Springs roots of the home. There’s a signature Krisel
fireplace in the living room, opposite the rear walls of glass, and the kitchen
is open to the living areas, tucked off the dining room. The kitchen includes
cherry Euro-style cabinets, composite counters, metal mosaic tile backsplashes
and stainless steel appliances.
The bedrooms show nice and bright, all featuring great
natural light, with the master including a sliding glass door accessing the
backyard. Both the hall and master bathrooms contain walls of mosaic tile,
cabinetry which matches that found in the kitchen, and a tub in the hall bath
and stall shower in the master bath.

Out back the home features an in-ground Alexander 15 x
30-foot swimming pool with a built-in hot tub which overflows into the pool. There’s
plenty of patio space to enjoy that great Palm Springs weather, along with
small turf areas at each end of the pool. There’s also plenty of low
maintenance desert landscape and privacy hedges at the sides of the yard. This home
has been immaculately renovated and stays true to the mid-mod essence of the
home, using materials that compliment and capture its architectural spirit.
