A few months after the splendid personal residence of Donald Wexler, the pioneering architect behind Palm Springs modernism, jumped onto the market, one of his striking classic designs has followed suit. Marked by a dramatic floating folded-plate roofline, the 1962-built house was the sixth of seven steel homes he created as part of an experimental project to promote steel construction in Palm Springs.

Restored to a T by current owners, the 1,400-square-foot abode showcases the ingenious simplicity of Wexler's work, palpable in these few listings photos currently available, one of which shows the signature the architect left on the home. A true desert oasis, the two-bedroom house sits on a 0.2-acre property that includes a pool.
