A chance to own an iconic original Palm Springs Mid Century modern residence with a Hollywood provenance. Designed by Palmer and Krisel Architects, built in 1961 by Alexander Construction, and long-time home to internationally known recording artist and actor Trini Lopez, this residence is sited in the coveted Vista Las Palmas neighborhood. The classic residence has remained virtually untouched, lovingly preserving the home's original mid-century modern charm and architectural detail. Most strikingly, the facade features a triple-barrel vaulted courtyard design which was Palmer & Krisel's signature element and is only one of four known to remain today. Other original features include a stamped-brick facade, exposed beams, tongue and groove ceilings, Masonite and patterned cinderblock walls, original mirrored walls, built-in buffet, Hawaiian blanket breeze blocks, and the original pool and spa complete with diving board. A sun filled living room with fireplace, original cabinetry in the kitchen, five bedrooms and five baths continue the modernist aesthetic. The 2,521 square foot estate includes a casita with kitchenette and bath which Lopez used as his office and recording studio. Sitting higher than neighboring homes, the property features unobstructed and soaring views of the San Jacinto Mountains in a truly private setting. A classic estate perfect for the mid-century modernist aficionado.
