New on the market is this expanded 1,645 square-foot Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Racquet Club Road Estates in Palm Springs, CA. Built by the Alexander Construction Company in 1959, this home features four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a two-car garage and an in-ground pool and spa on a 10,000 square-foot lot with an asking price of $519,900.
This home has been modified quite a bit from its original form but still retains its Palmer & Krisel charm. The exterior of the home has recently been painted, adding a pop of bright green accents to the exterior. The yard is enclosed with a small raised wall and features low maintenance mature desert landscape, while modern accents including house numbers and porch light give the home a hip Palm Springs vibe.

The long, open combination living and dining room features hardwood floors and provides views of the backyard and pool. Both the garage and fourth bedroom are accessed through the dining and living rooms, respectively, and west-facing clerestories in the dining room provide glimpse views of Mt. San Jacinto.

Out back, the yard is relatively open, with minimal landscape in favor of more patio and hardscapes. The yard has been split in two, with a wooden fence separating the yard. The south half of the yard contains the pool and spa, while the north half of the yard is fully paved, providing room for R.V. or boat parking.
|Pool and Spa|
|Backyard is sparsely landscaped but provides plenty of patio space|
|R.V. parking area still needs a little work|
This home has undergone quite a bit of restorative and renovation action over the years, and while there still may be a ways to go in certain areas, this midcentury modern Alexander home is definitely headed in the right direction.
