1969 William Krisel-Designed Indian Canyons Home For Sale – Palm Springs, CA

Situated on the 18th tee box of the Indian Canyons North Golf Course in Palm Springs, CA is this 1969 William Krisel, AIA-designed single-family home with panoramic mountain views. Identical to the nearby condominium homes in Kings Point, this detached home sits on a nearly 1/3 acre lot, contains three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,964 square feet and features a side-loaded two-car garage  and an in-ground pool and spa with an asking price of $1,080,000.

Entry courtyard

This flat-roofed home features a large circular driveway out front leading to the private opaque-fenced entry courtyard. The interior of the courtyard is sparsely landscape with rock, palms and shrubs, and leads visitors to the pale blue double front entry doors.

The doors enter the long, linear living room which instantly greets visitors with glass-walled views of the backyard. The living room features high, flat ceilings augmented with clerestories and dramatic thick beams which extend outside to the backyard. Anchoring the living room is a long, linear wet bar instantly giving this home cocktail party and entertaining appeal. The living area yields to the secondary living area and fireplace, which is somewhat reminiscent of some of William Krisel’s earlier designs in Pacifica.

The secondary living area features its original marble-covered modernist fireplace with vertical gold banding, giving a distinctly decadent late sixties appearance, and is flanked by large floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the back patio. The dining room sits adjacent to this space and features more walls of glass overlooking the nearby swimming pool.

The kitchen has been updated and compliments the architecture and design of the home, with sleek white flat-faced cabinetry, white composite counters, stainless steel appliances including a generous wine fridge. Light tones of white and grey give this space a luxurious, distinct Palm Springs feel.

The backyard, while sitting on the 18th tee box of Indian Canyon North, is actually very private, as healthy, tall green shrubs screen it from any golf course or streetside prying eyes. The long, rectangular pool features a spa at the northern end, and lots of patio space on either side of the pool, making this the perfect entertainers space.

This is a beautifully renovated and maintained late mid century William Krisel property that is tough to resist.
