Location: Palm Springs, California
We love a good flip, especially if it involves midcentury modern homes and sunny locales like Palm Springs—like this one that the good folks at Estately have alerted us to.
Sold in August of last year for $420,000, the 1,500-square-foot three-bedroom was in a bit of a state of disrepair and in need of a facelift. Still, you could see from the old listing photos that the bones were strong.
Now, after an extensive renovation, the bungalow is back on the market, brighter and better than ever. The most noticeable change is in the living room, which has been opened up to create a flexible layout that now encompasses an open-plan living and dining area and allows the interiors to breathe. The original sliding glass doors remain and frame sunny views onto a covered patio, pool, and grassy yard.
The spacious bedrooms, too, have been stripped back, and now feature a new paint job and new carpeting. The bathrooms have all been updated as well. The renovation has also added a fourth bedroom and a third bathroom and, in the process, about 500 extra square feet, but the listing says, rather puzzlingly, that it is up to the buyer to verify. For those interested, the property at 465 North Juanita Drive is now offered at $725,000.
