Expanded Racquet Club Road Estates Palmer & Krisel For Sale – Palm Springs, CA

New to the market is this 1959 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Palm Springs’ Racquet Club Road Estates. Expanded to 1,740 square feet, this four bedroom, two and a quarter bathroom home embodies the quintessential Palm Springs lifestyle with a large in-ground pool on a 10,400 square-foot lot with an asking price of $725,000.


Much of the home has been renovated, expanded and reconfigured in a manner that alters it significantly from its original Krisel design, but uses materials and aesthetics that follow the midcentury design style. The front yard of the home is low maintenance Palm Springs modern, with a creative use of boulders, grasses and palms.

The exterior of the home still maintains its flat-roof design, but much of the façade has been modified. A striking rock veneer has been added to the front of the home, which utilizes a pleasing mix of stacked and flat stonework, and even though not original, embodies the midcentury design style. The carport has been converted to a two-car garage, and the courtyard between the carport and home has been enclosed and claimed for additional living area.


Small office off of entryway

The entry of the home is lined with stacked stone veneer, and features a small somewhat open office/den adjacent to the foyer. The living and dining rooms are at the rear of the home, and are furnished very minimally, exuding the modernist style of the home.
