This standalone pool-adjacent unit in Park Imperial South, a 3.5 acre resort community built in 1961 in the south end of Palm Springs, is an excellent example of well-preserved mid-century modern design. Architect Barry Berkus, apprentice of William Cody and student of Richard Neutra and Conrad Buff at USC, designed the desert community. It's best known for its folded plate roofs and decorative concrete block - both of which dynamically maneuver the desert light throughout the day. The 30 unit community features garden-like grounds with mature palm and olive trees, all oriented around a large pool and spa with unobstructed views of the San Jacinto Mountains. This Mills Act property was considered the first All-General Electric Gold Medallion Condominium home in America. Inside this well-positioned unit, the original terrazzo runway leads from the entry, past the original concrete block bar, through the voluminous living room to the private walled courtyard patio beyond. Floor to ceiling glass connects the social spaces to the verdant patio. Behind the bar, shoji screens separate the updated kitchen with its original, iconic turquoise steel range hood and stove. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining nook. In the bedroom wing, the primary bedroom features high clerestory light, mountain views and an en suite bathroom. The other bedroom opens onto the private patio. There is also a den off of the living room that was originally designed to be converted into a third bedroom when needed. The unit comes with one nearby carport space. This updated home will allow you to enjoy a piece of modernist history as well as the best of current day Palm Springs coupled with significant tax savings.
