Travel to Palm Springs, and you’re bound to come across a William Krisel home. The architect was known for his affordable and distinctly midcentury modern designs: low-slung roofs, glassy expanses, indoor-outdoor living. He was also known for his sheer productivity—throughout his career, Krisel’s firm designed over an estimated 40,000 homes around Southern California and the surrounding area.

One of those houses is now on the market, and it’s a Krisel gem to be sure. Situated on Indian Canyon Golf Course in Palm Springs, this single-story stucco number is now on the market for $1.6M.

The 3,900-square-foot residence has four bedroom and four bathrooms spread across a sprawling footprint. Krisel designed the house in 1969, and plenty of its late-midcentury DNA remains despite updates throughout, including renovated bedroom suites and a new kitchen.

The house opens onto a spacious living/dining area with sleek stone floors and lots of windows to bring in the warm California sunshine. There’s a covered outdoor living area that leads to a patio where the pool is framed by an epic backdrop of palm trees and mountains.
