Palm Springs
3 Beds 2 Baths 6 Guests

City ID # 1822

Originally designed by William Krisel, a leading architect of the Mid Century Modern desert aesthetic and built by the famous Alexander Construction Company, House of the Sun is a time capsule of the idealized Palm Springs of the past. This retro-chic home is perfectly suited for a relaxing escape, with grapefruit and orange trees dotting the property and plenty of space to unwind in one of the many lounging areas by the large heated pool. A covered cabana makes for the perfect reading nook if you need to get out of the sun, and the custom built fire pit is the ideal space to watch the sunset behind the mountains or gaze up at the stars at night. Inside the home, a spacious living room, connected dining space, and open kitchen come together to create a central gathering spot for family or friends. The large sliding doors create a seamless experience between the indoors and outdoors. Step out each morning into the private lawn. Each bedroom is equipped with a full size TV, closet space, and unique local art. House of the Sun rests in the prestigious Racquet Club Estates, a charming enclave of Alexander homes, built in the mid-1950s. The house is 5 minutes drive from downtown Palm Springs and walking distance to a variety of restaurants, bars, and Victoria Park.
