The challenge of building in desert environments might make some architects think twice, but for renowned architect Donald Wexler, the California desert was irresistible. He’s been called the founder of Palm Springs Modernism, and this four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home in Indian Wells features all of his trademark style.

Measuring 6,722 square feet, the house was originally constructed in the mid-80s but has recently undergone a renovation to update the amenities. With low-hanging eaves, lots of horizontal lines, and exposed steel, the home is classic late-era Wexler.

Water features like a concrete bridge to the entryway and a cascading waterfall near the pool area help soften the exterior steel. Inside, wood accents compliment huge windows and sliding glass doors that open to the outdoors.

The home is located within The Vintage Club, a 479-home country club known for its five-star amenities like two 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf courses and tennis, swim, and fitness facilities.

If the desert is calling your heart, 75267 Morningstar Drive is on the market now for $3,495,000.
