Built in 1958 by the Alexander Construction company is this modernist butterfly-roofed Palmer & Krisel-designed home being sold fully furnished. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,278 square feet and an in-ground pool on a 10,400 square-foot lot, the asking price on this home is $669,000.
|Front of home and carport|
With a crisp white and dark-brown exterior, this north-facing home pops with classic midcentury desert plantings, including well-sculpted olive trees and billowy shrubs set amid clean grey stone. Multiple palm trees add a tropics-like touch to the home, and a pair of bright pink double doors lead visitors and guests inside the property.
|Dining and living rooms|
The living, dining and kitchen all overlook the private backyard through Krisel’s signature walls of glass sliders. Clad in light hardwood floors, the living room is anchored by Krisel’s signature modernist fireplace, which has been covered in slate veneer. The original form of the fireplace can be seen under the slate, and restored if desired. The open beamed vaulted ceilings are still in place, painted a light beige, and unite the kitchen, living and dining rooms together.
The kitchen is tucked off and open to the dining room, and has been updated over time, with newer raised-panel light cabinetry which contains an interesting mixture of knobs on the lower cabinetry and pulls on the uppers. The counters are newer composite, and olive green subway tile has been added as a backsplash.
The three bedrooms remain in their original configurations, with the secondary bedrooms at the front of the home and the master at the rear. The master bedrooms features a sliding glass door accessing the pool area, while the master bath has been updated over time with materials that are keeping in line with those utilized in the kitchen. The secondary bedrooms are carpeted, and overlook the front yard through tall floor-to-ceiling windows.
|Backyard and pool offers mountain views|
|Covered patio and yard|
The south-facing backyard is a private oasis, with the original large 15’ x 30’ Alexander swimming pool steps away from the living and dining rooms. Beautiful mountain views abound from the pool and yard, adding to the resort-like feel of the landscape. A clean-lined covered patio sits off the living room, minimizing the butterfly roofline of the home, providing ample patio space for entertaining and outdoor living. Lush, green privacy shrubs line the rear yard, and sculptural desert plantings and well-maintained turf surrounds the pool.
Even as this home is being sold fully furnished, there’s plenty of room to personalize the home while considering modernist reworkings of the kitchen and baths.
