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.
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

|Dining and secondary living area|
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.
|Dining area at rear of home|
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.
|Master dressing area|
The large master bedroom overlooks the backyard and pool
area through floor-to-ceiling windows, and is generous in proportion and size. The
master bathroom has been renovated on warm beige and wood tones, and features
generous proportions and lots of storage. The guest rooms overlook and sit at
the side of the home, and the guest bath has been renovated in a sleek and
contemporary manner fitting of this home.
|Pool, patio and spa|

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.
