Located in iconic Twin palms Estates is this renovated 1957 Palmer & Krisel-designed home. Built by the Alexander Construction Company, this flat-roofed home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,600 original square feet with an in-ground pool and two-car carport all on a 10,800 square-foot lot with an asking price of $795,000.
|Front yard - Nice Mod Box!|
The exterior of the home had long been altered with a private walled courtyard constructed on the front of the corner property. The current owners have spent the previous two years updated and putting the ‘modern’ back into this midcentury modern gem. The landscape out front has been refreshed and cleaned up, and a new walkway and entry gate set the tone for this property.
|Living and dining room|
Inside, the living and dining and master bedroom sit along the east side of the home overlooking the backyard and swimming pool, while the kitchen and secondary bedrooms are located along the west side of the property. The home features white porcelain tile throughout the living areas, with the original signature high flat open-beamed ceilings still in place. The living room is anchored by a natural stone-veneered fireplace, flanked by single-paneled north-facing French doors.
The kitchen sits at the front of the home, tucked off and open to the dining room. New composite counters, high-gloss white and grey cabinetry and stainless steel appliances have been added replacing the well-worn original fixtures.
The master bedroom sits at the northwest corner of the home, and features high north-facing clerestories and a sliding glass door accessing the backyard. The master bath has been opened to the room, and features custom mosaics and a tasteful blend of black, white and grey tilework. The secondary bedrooms sits at the front of the home and each feature sliding glass doors accessing the front courtyard. The guest bath has been updated with clean, simple materials that are keeping in-line with the midcentury modern bones of the home.
The backyard contains the original 15’ x 30’ Alexander swimming pool, with flexible patio space, turf accents, and privacy shrubs waiting to mature. Desert landscape and rock make up the remainder of the north-facing backyard space.
This is a great modern renovation of a true midcentury classic. The property is move-in ready and a perfect retreat for those seeking their own piece of modernism.
