Mid-Century Modern Home, CA

Southeast of Los Angeles and northeast of San Diego, the desert oasis of Palm Springs has been a fashionable resort town since the early 1900s but experienced a modern architectural boom following World War II. Reflecting the optimism of the atomic age, the Mid-Century Modernist school of architecture is known for clean lines, geometric shapes, and functional materials with an emphasis on steel, glass, and concrete.

Hundreds of unique creations by the greats of the movement decorate the palm-studded sands of Palm Springs, including the striking glass-and-steel Palm Springs Visitor’s Center, the Richard Neutra designed Kaufman House (considered one of the most important American houses of the 20th century), and the “House of Tomorrow” where Elvis and Priscilla Presley spent their honeymoon.

One of these mid-century modern homes, designed by Charles Du Bois who was one of Palm Springs’ most prolific architects, has been listed for $2.75 million. Beautifully restored, the 3,600-square-foot home has four bedrooms and four baths inside its geometric angles and stone facade.

Enter through double doors with Du Bois’ signature handles to find a gorgeously turned-out open floor plan space featuring a hand-scraped douglas fir and wood-beamed umbrella roofline that contrasts with the bright white walls. The fireplace with a dramatic neolith overlay is a true statement piece. Throughout the home, playfully colored terrazzo tiles and photographer Don Flood’s coveted Fliepaper wallcoverings provide a chic aesthetic. Walls of glass let in tons of natural light.

The private dining room includes a wine cellar and overlooks the gorgeous poolscape. The indoor-and-outdoor spaces connect seamlessly as the kitchen wall disappears to open to the pool.

The custom-tiled oval pool is recessed into the spacious pool deck, which accords stunning mountain views, a firepit, and a uniquely shaped jacuzzi separate from the pool. A separate casita with bed, bath and breakfast bar provides a space for guests. Mature palms line the driveway and pool area.
