Million Dollar Monday: 1960 Golden Vista Estates Palmer & Krisel For Sale, Palm Springs, CA

Priced at $975,000, this 1960 Palmer & Krisel-designed home built by the Alexander Construction Company is just shy of the million dollar mark, but represents a great opportunity to own a cul-de-sac lot home adjacent to the sought-after Vista Las Palmas neighborhood in Palm Springs, CA. With 1,600 original square feet, this home features three bedrooms, two bathrooms with a two-car carport and in-ground pool all on a 12,100 square-foot lot.

Front of home with fantastic mountain views

The views alone are million-dollar worthy, with commanding views of the mountains to the south and west. Situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this flat-roofed home still features it’s original open-air two car carport and entry courtyard. The front yard is low maintenance desert, with two stately palms at the front of the home surrounded by smaller landscape plantings.

The floorplan of the home is the same basic Krisel floor plan found in Twin Palms Estates, with the kitchen adjacent to the entry, living and dining rooms at the rear of the home and the bedrooms at the front. The living room features its original Krisel modernist fireplace, flanked by sliding glass doors overlooking the pool. The dining room walls are mirrored, making the space appear larger in photographs.

Kitchen features original cabinets with updated appliances

We love seeing the original pulls still intact

Original cooktop vent is still in place

The kitchen has been updated to include a combination of the original cabinetry mixed with new composite countertops and appliances, giving the best of both worlds to the new owners.  Even the original kitchen wall vent fan is still intact, giving a nod to this home’s midcentury roots.
