Palm Springs, California, is packed with top-notch midcentury modern architecture, and the latest to catch our eye is this four-bedroom, three-bath gem in the Twin Palms neighborhood.

The home was designed by William Krisel of Palmer & Krisel, a prolific architect known for bringing high design to the masses in architecturally appealing midcentury homes. This 1957 version boasts many of the trademark features of a Palmer & Krisel house, including high clerestory windows, post-and-beam construction, stone fireplaces, and angular roof lines.

The design uses desert stone on its facade, a stark contrast to the delicate panes of glass that cover the back side with views to the outside. Terrazzo floors are featured throughout, and each bedroom benefits from floor-to-ceiling doors and windows out to the backyard. A pleasant pool, hot tub, and pergola make for easy indoor-outdoor living, and professional landscaping and mountain views add to the ambiance.

If this looks like your post-and-beam dream, 1042 East Apache Road is on the market now for $1,245,000.
