The Sandpiper condominium development in Palm Desert incorporated several different Palmer & Krisel designs, offering maximum flexibility and choices for homebuyers who wanted a more carefree style of living. This 1965-built unit wraps around its own private courtyard, while also providing views and patio space along the common greenbelt. Measuring 1,897 square feet, this unit fits three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a detached one-car carport with an asking price of $429,900 plus monthly HOA fees of $495.
A pair of original double doors lead visitors into the living area which is well lit by southwest facing clerestories sitting above a decorative concrete block accent wall. Floor to ceiling windows and sliders anchor the southeast wall of the room, proving access to the common pool and greenbelt. The kitchen sits at the center of the home and lacks immediate natural light. The cabinets are original, and while the kitchen is on the small side, there does appear to be adequate storage.
The dining room overlooks the private courtyard, and receives plenty of light from a floor-to-ceiling slider. Also overlooking the private courtyard is the master bedroom, which is generous in size and features more walls of glass to the courtyard. The master bath features all original cabinetry, a built-in vanity, original medicine cabinets, counters and sinks. There’s also a secondary bedroom which overlooks the courtyard, while the last remaining bedroom overlooks the southeast facing common area.
The guest bath also features all original cabinets, sinks and countertops, an elongated stall shower, and if you love a good carpeted bathroom, you’re in luck – wall to wall bathroom carpet. The private courtyard is the star of this home, offering a secluded lush retreat with beautiful plant specimens, built-in storage, and plenty of room for a full set of patio furniture. There’s a second southeast facing patio overlooking the common area, with room for a second set of patio furniture and capped with an elongated sunflap augmented with Krisel’s signature use of parallel lines.
