Million Dollar Monday: Vista Las Palmas Restoration Opportunity – Palm Springs, CA

Situated on a prime corner lot is this flat roof 1961 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in the exclusive Vista Las Palmas neighborhood.  With three bedrooms and three bathroom in 1,850 square feet, the home includes an in-ground pool and spa, a two car garage and all furnishings for an asking price of $1,075,000.


Currently utilized as a vacation rental, the home sits on a 11,700 square-foot corner lot with a west-facing backyard capitalizing on nearby mountainside views. The home has been renovated over the years to read more southwestern than midcentury modern. The front yard is semi-walled in with low-maintenance landscape. The original two-car carport has been converted to a two-car garage, and the entry courtyard has been enclosed and gated off for additional privacy.

Inside, the open living and dining rooms sit in their original configuration at the rear of the home, overlooking the backyard swimming pool and mountain views. A large natural stone fireplace anchors the two rooms while the original open-beamed ceilings add height and volume to the space.

The three bedrooms remain in their original configurations, with the secondary bedrooms at the front of the home facing east. The master bedroom sits at the rear corner of the home, with French doors leading out to the pool area. Both original bathrooms and the third added guest bath have been updated and renovated in a style very similar to the kitchen, with neutral tile accents and updated fixtures.

The backyard is the star of this home, with commanding views of Mt. San Jacinto that are virtually unobstructed. The original Alexander 15’ x 30’ rectangular swimming pool sits at the center of the yard, and a small raised spa has been added to one corner of the pool. Privacy shrubs surround the yard, and a trellised barbeque area sits behind the pool, while a long covered patio wraps the rear of the home.

This home is loaded with character, and carries fantastic views that alone are worth a million dollars. New owners could opt to restore, renovate or enjoy this solid home as-is – either way it’s a fantastic property that’s tough to pass up.
