Million Dollar Monday: 1959 Golden Vista Estates Palmer & Krisel Home For Sale

Today’s Million Dollar Monday is a 1959 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Golden Vista Estates, in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs, CA. Situated on a 14,000 square-foot cul-de-sac lot, this three bedroom two bathroom home measures 1,600 square feet in size and comes with an asking price of $997,000.

Built by the Alexander Construction Company, this is the same model of home as found in the Twin Palms Estates tract in south Palm Springs. The basic floor plan of the home hasn’t been altered at all, and maintains its original integrity.

Entry courtyard

The original two-car carport has been converted to a garage, and a wrought-iron fence has been added to the front entry courtyard, allowing for extra privacy. The southeast facing front yard incorporates a lush desert landscape, mixing boulders, agaves and cacti with lush turf and palms.  The entry courtyard incorporates a trellised covering between the home and garage, and leads both to the front door and the backyard beyond.

Living and Dining Rooms

The living and dining rooms overlook the northwest-facing swimming pool, and are anchored by the signature Krisel modernist fireplace. The fireplace surround  and hearth appears to have been covered with a scored concrete covering, which compliments the form of the fireplace well. High, open-beamed ceilings help the space feel large and open.

Kitchen and Dining Room


Kitchen features notched cutout to accommodate a breakfast bar

The kitchen has been updated and expanded a bit into the dining area, with raised-panel cabinetry, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. A large open storage shelf system matching the cabinetry extends into the dining space to allow for additional storage and display areas.

Facing west, the backyard offers spectacular mountain views, one of the best features of this community.

This home features million-dollar views in a million-dollar location. The park-like grounds, tranquil setting and quiet cul-de-sac make this Palmer & Krisel midcentury home a must see.
