Location: Palm Springs, California
This groovy midcentury modern home located in the Twin Palms neighborhood of Palm Springs starts with an unforgettable facade of stone “isosceles trapezoidal piers” and aquamarine double doors and culminates in impressive outdoor spaces that include a pool and multiple patios.
Built in 1965 with a design attributed to architect Hal Levitt, the historic residence has been updated but still boasts the best elements of the era, like bright, open spaces, glazed expanses and sliding glass doors that blur the line between indoor and outdoor, terrazzo floors, and an abundance of common living areas.
The U-shaped house comprises a step-down living room with a double-sided fireplace with golden Moroccan tiling, and on the other side of that one step below, a conversation pit-like sitting area, both of which feature glass walls that look out onto the backyard. An updated kitchen opens onto an interior atrium for al fresco dining.
As for bedrooms, there are four of them—all of which are ensuite and huge, if you can believe it, and have floor-to-ceiling windows and sliders. There’s an additional powder room bringing up the count to 5 baths. Out back, the afore-mentioned pool, a spa, fire pit, and lounge area create a private oasis. Located at 1999 South Joshua Tree Place, it’s offered at just under $1.9 million.
