Designed by architect William Krisel and erected in 1958 by Alexander Construction Company, this picturesque portrait of post-and-beam architecture is found in the renowned mid-century modern neighborhood of Sunrise Park in the heart of Palm Springs. Recently refurnished and improved in 2013, this classic Alexander maintains its mid-century feel while offering all of the 21st century amenities you could need.
The gas fireplace, sleek floated drywall, quartz countertops, gleaming porcelain tile floors, and personalized walnut cabinetry are just a few of the finish details that set this home apart. Premium appliances from Kohler, Grohe, Possini Euro Design and KitchenAid are installed throughout the kitchen. Modernists will be in a private paradise as innovative and stylish decor from names like Saarinan, van der Rohe, Noguchi, Eames and Knoll line every wall.
All four of these bedrooms are super chic and furnished with a large flat-screen television and quality linens on memory foam mattresses, so everybody sleeps in style at Aqua House. Two of these master bedrooms have their own private bath, as well. The entire home is equipped with the latest technological comforts, including a Sonos wi-fi sound system that streams Pandora, iTunes, and thousands of online radio stations or podcasts. Every TV in the house delivers 200 channels of DirecTV in full HD, and Genie whole-house DVR allows you to retire to the bedroom to finish watching your favorite show.
*But wait, there's more! Out back is an inviting outdoor retreat with a gorgeous new saltwater pool and spa, and a large covered lanai-style outdoor lounge with wet bar, bathroom and outdoor shower. There is also plenty of pool deck space for relaxing in the warm desert sun, a gas fire-pit for gathering with cocktails on cool evenings, and a huge covered patio for outdoor dining for 12. All this luxury is surrounded by natural desert landscaping and gorgeous views of the palm trees and San Jacinto mountains.
Should you decide to venture out, this home is less than 5 minutes from downtown Palm Springs, including some of the best restaurants, galleries and vintage stores in the desert.
And that's not all! The back yard is your own private oasis enveloped in a natural desert landscape with spectacular views silhouetted by palm trees of the San Jacinto mountains. The saltwater pool and spa centerpiece is surrounded by plenty of deck space for unwinding in the desert sun, or taking a break under the covered lanai-style lounge with wet bar, outdoor shower and bathroom. You could also cook on the grill and serve your guests in the shaded dining area for 12, and follow up by sharing some drinks and stories under the desert sky around the gas fire-pit. If you decide to check out what Palm Springs has to offer, you are only five minutes from downtown where you'll find the valley's greatest galleries, vintage stores, and restaurants.
