Cheery Palmer & Krisel Home For Sale in Racquet Club Road Estates – Palm Springs, CA

Located on a quiet 15-home cul-de-sac in Racquet Club Road Estates in Palm springs, CA sits this 1959 Palmer & Krisel-designed home built by the Alexander Construction Company. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,225 square feet, a two car garage and an in-ground pool on a 10,000 square-foot lot, the asking price of this home is $495,000.

B1 Elevation

This is a Racquet Club Road Estates model B1, flat-roofed with the entry in a small courtyard on the side of the home. Like most Palmer & Krisel-designed homes, the living, dining and kitchen are all at the rear of the home, while the three bedrooms are at the front.

The front of the home features low maintenance, mature desert landscaping consisting of cacti, ocotillo, brittle bush shrubs, several small palms and a sprawling multi-trunked tree. The facade of the home incudes a variety of materials, with wood, stucco and block finishes. Most eye-catching are the five large aqua polka-dots painted on the front of the home, which add a playful, cheery element to the property.

One of the great things about the Palmer & Krisel Alexander homes in Palm Springs is that they were designed as vacation retreats, second homes that offered an escape from daily life in the city. This escapism allows the homes to be fun in architecture, color and style, and things like polka dots and bright colors that wouldn’t ordinarily be found in sprawling cities are suddenly a very fitting norm in relaxed Palm Springs.

Backyard with original Alexander Pool

There’s no photos of the interior of the home, but judging by the square-footage, bedrooms and bathrooms noted in the listing, it sounds like the home still has its original layout.  The south-facing backyard features its original Alexander 15’ x 30’ in-ground rectangular pool, lots of patio space and several palm trees. There’s also a small shed, large side yards and low maintenance desert landscape along the sides of the property.

From the exterior this looks to be a fun, clean home on a fantastic street filled with other well maintained and well-loved Palmer & Krisel homes. Hopefully we’ll be able to see some interior photos of this one soon!
