Flat-Roofed Palmer & Krisel For Sale In Racquet Club Road Estates – Palm Springs, CA

New to the market is this 1962 flat roof Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Palm Springs’ Racquet Club Road Estates. Built by the Alexander Construction Company, this home contains three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,013 expanded square feet and sits on a large 12,100 square-foot lot with an in-ground pool all with an asking price of $499,000.

Front of home

The exterior of this home doesn’t quite line up with the renovations on the inside, allowing for future owners to take advantage of the opportunity and create their own modernist landscape. The yard is essentially a blank slate, while the raised-panel garage door and ornate courtyard gates harken a style other than modernist. One of the cool, distinctive features outside is the original Krisel sunflap sited over the south-facing bedroom windows, adding distinctive character to the home and hiding mullioned white vinyl windows.


Inside the home, a double-doored entry leads into entry hall, created out of the original courtyard which once sat between the home and carport. The living, dining and kitchen all sit at the rear of the home, while the tree bedrooms lie at the front. The original open-beamed wood slat ceilings are still in place, painted white with bright blue beams. Shiny porcelain tiles line the living areas, while patterned blue carpet lines the bedrooms.

Kitchen island




The kitchen has been updated with clean, modern cabinetry and composite counters. The former sliver window adjacent to the range has been expanded and converted to a doorway leading into a laundry room addition which sits behind the two-car garage. Stainless steel appliances, composite backsplashes and a sputnik light fixture over center island round out the room, which is open to the adjacent kitchen and dining.

The two secondary bedrooms overlook the front yard behind the distinctive sunflap, while the adjacent master bedrooms opens up to the sideyard of the home with large sliding glass doors and windows leading to a private patio. Both bathrooms have been updated with clean, white tilework, colorful accents and floating vanities.


Pool and back of home

The backyard features a large curvy swimming pool steps at the center of the yard, surrounded by dozens of palms and cacti. A small pergola sits on the west side of the yard, offering shady cabana-like area near the pool. The remainder of the yard is low-maintenance desert landscape, with plenty of room for personalization.

This flat-roofed home offers a nicely updated interior with plenty of opportunity to recreate the outdoor areas for those looking for a more modernist landscape environment.
