Location: Palm Springs, California
The Alexander Construction Company famously built over 2,000 modernist homes in the Coachella Valley between 1955 and 1965. With their focus on indoor-outdoor living and open plan layouts, the "Alexanders" helped turn the desert resort of Palm Springs into the mecca of modernism that it is today. One of the original Alexander model homes, a 1957 beauty designed by Palmer & Krisel, just hit in the market in Palm Springs. According to the listing, the 1,600-square-foot home with a pool has been "thoughtfully renovated in the original style of the architects," and comes with an updated kitchen and two bathrooms. The one-story home in the Twin Palms neighborhood of Palm Spring has a high gabled roof, glass walls, three wallpapered bedrooms, and a large backyard. It's listed for $829,000.
