Huge Twin Palms Estates Palmer & Krisel Vacation Home For Sale – Palm Springs, CA

Relatively recent to the market is this Twin Palms Estates Palmer & Krisel vacation home opportunity. Expanded from a modest 1,600 square feet to its current 3,100 square feet, this home features five bedrooms and three bathrooms on a 10,800 square foot lot with an in-ground pool and carries an asking price of $769,000.

Front of home

Built by the Alexander Construction Company in 1958, this home has seen numerous additions and modifications over the years. The front of the home has a fortress-like appearance, with two front additions flanking the front door and the two-car carport long converted to habitable living space. The front yard is nearly all driveway and concrete, with only two small planters containing palms and rock flanking a long concrete trench leading to the front door.

Inside the home, the main living areas are oriented towards the north side of the lot while the three original and expanded bedrooms lie along the south side of the home. The carport has been converted to a large pool house with its own bathroom.

The north facing living room still generally maintains its original proportions and aesthetics, with large walls of sliding glass doors overlooking the north-facing pool and backyard. The original modernist fireplace has been flattened into a more generic form, and a swanky wet bar with smoked mirrors sits opposite the fireplace. George Nelson bubble lamps help add a touch of modernism to the room, and a bright orange wall adds a fun pop of color.


The kitchen sits at the front of the home, and features newer retro cabinetry and light blue counters. Simple white appliances keep in line with the clean lines of the kitchen, and a built in-coffee maker adds a modern touch.

With all the additions on this home, there’s plenty of bedrooms to be had – five total, making this an ideal vacation pad. The bedrooms all feature vaulted ceilings, with all bedrooms clustered along the north and south sides of the home. All the bathrooms have been updated, with floating vanities, clean mosaic tilework and new fixtures.


The backyard is centered around the original 15’ x 30’ Alexander swimming pool, with lots of covered and uncovered patio space surrounding it. Tall green privacy hedges surround the pool, and distant views of Mt. San Jacinto to the west are provided over the roof of the home.

This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to acquire a Palmer & Krisel vacation home, especially those looking to flex a little creativity in bringing a property to the next level of modernism.
