Located in Palm Springs’ iconic Twin Palms Estates is this 1957 Palmer & Krisel-designed home built by the Alexander Construction Company. Measuring in at its original 1,600 square feet, this home includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a carport converted to a two car garage, an in-ground pool and spa all on a 10,800 square-foot lot with an asking price of $774,999.
Sited on Aquanetta Drive, soon to be renamed William Krisel Way, the home is positioned with an east-facing front yard with well-manicured turf and lush desert plantings. Original natural stone veneer covers the front of the home, while a later-added glass block fence encloses the entry courtyard.
|Lush entry courtyard|
The entry to the home sits hidden behind the glass block wall, which hides a private courtyard with seating area and lush garden plantings. A partial solid and trellised covering sits over the courtyard, which in turn opens up to the private backyard.
|Living, dining and kitchen beyond|
The living, kitchen and dining areas of the home are all positioned at the rear of the home, while the three bedrooms sit along the front. Original open beamed vaulted ceilings add height to the living areas, and the original stone-veneered fireplace anchors the living space. Signature walls of glass overlook the backyard and swimming pool, and south-facing clerestory windows allow additional natural light to flood the room.
The kitchen has been opened up to the dining and living rooms, and features recently updated cabinetry and granite counters. Stainless steel appliances, tumbled marble backsplashes and pendant lighting complete the traditional elements that comprise the kitchen. Original clerestory windows above the cabinetry were retained, allowing for the room to feel more open and bright.
|Master bedroom patio|
|Light-filled secondary bedroom|
All three bedrooms are in their original configurations, with both of the secondary bedrooms overlooking the front yard through large floor-to-ceiling windows. The master bedroom overlooks the south-facing side yard with a wall of glass windows, and the master bath is light-filled as well. Simple porcelain tiles, white fixtures and cabinetry which matches that found in the kitchen complete both of the bathrooms.
|Backyard pool and mountain views|
|Firepit on north half of yard|
|Rear patio & back of home|
|Hot tub and pool|
|Back of home|
|Pool and palms|
The backyard is a private oasis, with the original 15’ x 30’ Alexander swimming pool anchoring the space. Tall, green privacy hedges surround the yard, and frame palm-filled views of Mt. San Jacinto. The north half of the yard features a lush turf area, with an in-ground fire and conversation pit centered in the space. The in-ground hot tub sits near the south end of the yard, and tiki torches, a built-in barbeque and trellised patio cover round out the space.
This is a great opportunity to acquire an iconic home in the sought-after modernist haven of Twin Palms Estates. With beautiful views, an inviting back yard retreat, wonderful original bones and a reasonable asking price, this home won’t last long.
