Built in 1960 is this early Palmer & Krisel-designed unit at the Sandpiper Condominiums in Palm Desert, CA. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, this unit measures 1,522 square feet and features both front and rear patios with an asking price of $319,900 and monthly HOA dues of $500.
The unit is unassuming from the outside, one of the few to feature a singular entry doorway, while most other Sandpiper models provide grand double door entries. This unit features a leaded glass door entry that reads more traditional than mid-century, but an upgrade to a modern door is a relatively easy fix.
