Midcentury Modern Gem!This gorgeous midcentury modern vacation home was designed by renowned architect Donald Wexler in 1960, and has been featured in Palm Springs Modernism Week 2013. It has been recently updated with exceptional modern luxuries and conveniences.
Located in the historic El Rancho Vista Estates neighborhood of Palm Springs, this midcentury modern architectural vacation home offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, over 1,600 square feet of living space, and retains many of the original decorative design features.
You and your guests will enjoy this Palm Springs vacation home's two stylish living areas on either side of the recently updated kitchen and dining room. This home is furnished with period pieces and high quality reproduction furniture from the owners' own furniture company, Mid Mod Finds (midmodfinds.com), creating a truly mid-century experience - it's the perfect combination of stunning mid-century design with every possible modern amenity!
Relax in the casual sunken family room while viewing the 55" TV with DVD player, Atari 2600 with classic games, and 1960s Bose stereo sound system complete with turntable, or enjoy the openness of the adjoining living, dining and kitchen areas.
This spectacular Palm Springs home was designed to maximize your enjoyment of Palm Springs weather and year-round sunshine. Large walls of glass in the living room look out over the sparkling pool & spa and the breathtaking mountain backdrop beyond.
The fun, artful midcentury modern design in this Palm Springs vacation home continues outside in the fully walled private pool area. This newly designed pool includes a "Baja Shelf," a shallow flat area perfect for sun worshipers and little swimmers, umbrella stand, saltwater chlorination (gentler on the skin than traditional chlorine), water feature, and elevated waterfall spa. The iPod controller lets you set up the pool, spa and lighting according to your preference from anywhere inside the home or in the pool area.
In the evenings, as the sun dips behind the gorgeous Palm Springs mountains, you can enjoy drinks around a four-pit gas fire feature in the center of this backyard oasis beneath towering palms. You'll also find a built-in barbeque, outdoor dining for up to 6, lounge chairs for 6, a 12' rotating umbrella, retro hanging Globe chair, and plenty of outdoor seating to soak in the sun and enjoy the stunning mountain vistas.
You'll find everything you need to prepare delicious meals for you and your guests in this recently updated kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and all of the small appliances and service ware you'd find at home.
The master bedroom is spacious and inviting, with a king size bed, a 42" TV as well as an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower.
Two guest rooms down the hall share a bathroom with tub and shower combo. Each of the bedrooms is delightfully decorated with fun accents and colors and features its own TV and queen size beds.

We were truly happen with the entire experience. The reservation, check-in and check-out was easy. The Mid Mod is a great property and even better than expected. The Pool is awecome, but if you are traveling during the summer as we did, i would recommend that you take additional shade. We brought our 12x12 pop-up and it is the perfect additon to the lounge area
