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

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.

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.
