Palm Springs is full of incredible midcentury modern real estate, but today we have something more unique: a four-bedroom, five-bath cottage constructed in 1936. Located in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood, the home has had prestigious former owners including silent film star John Garfield and baseball Hall-of-Famer Don Drysdale.
The one-level, 3,016-square-foot home features a classic covered porch that spans the width of the residence, and according to the listing, “is unlike any other in the region.” Updates blend with the cottage’s period stone floors and four fireplaces; the home features new open-beam wood ceilings and multi-paned windows with interior shutters.
The living room has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open up to the half acre backyard. The master bath, too, looks out onto a new pool, spa, and 410-square-foot detached guest house. Direct mountain views offer a picture-perfect backdrop for entertaining, as do the fruit orchard, majestic palms, and covered patio with retractable awnings.
