Location: Palm Springs, California
Here’s another enviable California midcentury modern, this one a Charles Dubois-designed 1958 build by Alexander Construction Company, a frequent collaborator. One of about 2,500 tract homes he designed during the 1950s in Palm Springs, the 3,441-square-foot five-bedroom-four-bath features all that the era had to offer: An oversized roof with butterfly extension above the garage, generous windows throughout, open-plan living with fireplace, spacious private quarters, high post-and-beam ceilings, and delightful outdoor, pool-side entertaining.
It’s been updated for contemporary living with terrazzo flooring, a glistening chef’s kitchen with the latest in appliances, wine room, butler’s pantry, and bright, colorful bathrooms. Panoramic mountain views round out this stunning desert property, which even has a bit of a Hollywood past. Originally owned by Chuck Iverson, the first Volkswagen and Porsche dealer in Palm Springs and best friend to one John Wayne, the residence was apparently quite the party pad.
Located at 616 North High Road, it’s asking $2,590,000.
