On the Market: Vintage Palm Springs
Between 1955 and 1965, Palm Springs and the surrounding Coachella Valley was the landscape for the construction of over 2,000 modernist homes built by the Alexander Construction Company.
With their focus on indoor-outdoor living and open plan layouts, the “Alexanders” helped turn the desert resort of Palm Springs into the mecca of modernism that it is today. One of the original Alexander model homes, a 1957 beauty designed by Palmer & Krisel, just hit in the market in Palm Springs.
According to the listing, the 1,600-square-foot home with a pool has been “thoughtfully renovated in the original style of the architects,” and comes with an updated kitchen and two bathrooms.
The one-story home in the Twin Palms neighborhood of Palm Springs has a high gabled roof, glass walls, three wallpapered bedrooms and a large backyard. It’s listed for $829,000.
