That’s an impressive roof-line swoop

Location: Palm Springs, California

Price: $795,000

This neat 1,760-square-foot, three bedroom butterfly-roofed home has just fluttered onto the market in sunny Palm Springs, and it’s likely that it won’t stay put for long (shout-out to WowHaus for its discerning eye once again). Designed by William Krisel in the late 1950s and recently renovated, the post-and-beam boasts a dramatic roof line, mixed facade of glass, brick, and wood, generous open layout, great outdoor space, expert landscaping, and impressive mountain views.

And though it’s undergone a slick upgrade—the kitchen and bathrooms feature bright and shiny surfaces—the house stays true its midcentury roots. The backyard even hosts a pool, kitchen, bar, and fire pit, making the property a smart choice for the, ahem, social butterfly. Located at 1932 South Navajo Drive, it’s asking $795,000.
