The last week of the year is traditionally slow and there’s not that many new Krisel-designed homes to share. Sitting on the market for nearly six months is this 1963 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Palm Springs’ Canyon View Estates. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,684 square feet the asking price on this home is $411,900 with monthly HOA dues of $320.
|Front yard courtyard|
Situated on a corner, the front of the home is landscaped with mature vegetation which hides the home from the street. The original one-car carport has been converted to livable space, eliminating covered parking from the property.
|Original wall oven|
Inside, the home is a mix of styles and finishes, which will bring most buyers to consider redecorating. The original kitchen sits just off the entry at the front of the home, which currently shows dark. The original cabinetry is still in place, which has been painted a vintage turquoise color and appears to be well maintained. Newer tile counters have been added, and the original white enamel General Electric wall oven is still in place.
|Living, entry and kitchen|
|Dining and living|
The kitchen features a small pass-through to the living room, which in turn features a large wet-facing wall of glass overlooking the backyard patio and common area green belt. The living room features the hallmark Canyon View eight-pointed vaulted ceiling in the living room with clerestories offering glimpses of the surrounding mountains and palms. Traditional lighting, ceiling fan and flooring weigh the room down a bit and take away from the modernist details of the space.
|Hall & secondary bedroom|
The bathrooms have all been updated with a mix of traditional materials that aren’t necessarily in keeping with the modern architectural style of the home, but are clean and functional for now. The hall bath features a small skylight for added natural light. The two guest bedrooms sit at the front of the home, while the master bedroom overlooks the rear patio. The flooring on the bedrooms switches to a mix of Saltillo and carpeting, adding to the eclectic look of the home.
|Rear patio - lots of hooks in that ceiling|
The rear patio is fully tiled, and features mature vegetation which helps to block the western sun. Beige tile with color accents adds a southwestern look to the patio, and if you like hanging plants, there’s about a million hooks in the ceiling waiting for our collection.
This property has been sitting for a while, mainly due to the amount of work and high price. But or those with a little vision who want to put their own stamp on a project, this is an excellent opportunity.
