Original 1962 Palmer & Krisel Sandpiper Condo For Sale – Palm Desert, CA

This 1962 Palm Desert Condomium designed by Palmer & Krisel is nearly as original as the day it was built. This three bedroom, three bathroom dual-master 2,020 square-foot unit features its own private interior courtyard, a large living room, two assigned parking spaces and expanded living room windows with an asking price of $439,000 and monthly HOA dues of $495.

This unit features lots of great traditional mid-century details. The only noticeable modification made to this mid-century modern home sits just to the left of the raised-panel orange double entry doors – the living room clerestory windows have been lowered approximately 40 inches to create a chest-high window opening offering sweeping views of the nearby mountains. The proportion definitely feels off, but the view definitely makes up for it.

Living Room

Dining Room features lots of great vintage wallpaper

The living room sits at the southwest corner of the unit, abuts a private patio overlooking the common area and also features an interesting built-in niche along with some pretty vintage green patterned wallpaper. The dining room sits off the living room, overlooking the private interior courtyard, and is surrounded on two sides with generous walls of glass complimented by additional vintage wallpaper.

The interior courtyard offers a moderate-sized patio with exposed aggregate pavement, decorative stone and boulders, and low-care landscape. There’s also a great collection of vintage hanging outdoor lighting that helps add the traditional mid-century aesthetic of the home.

This is a great property for those that love traditional midcentury, or an excellent project if one wants to bring out the modern of this midcentury modern home. Whichever way it’s taken, it’s definitely a winner.
