This extremely popular home sold for well over asking in 11 days with 40 offers. Our clients, Chris and Francis did an impeccable job on the restoration, and the interest in the home validated that. The sensitive renovation was a great melding of modern touches of today that blend well with architectural heritage of the house, a 1959 midcentury by noted architect Hugh Kaptur, who was part of the Palm Springs School of Architecture, with contemporaries E. Stewart Williams, Donald Wexler, William Krisel, William Cody, and Albert Frey. Kaptur is a recipient of a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame and subject of the film, A Quiet Elegance. Kaptur’s portfolio includes more than 200 residential and commercial projects in the Coachella Valley, including the iconic Steve McQueen and William Holden residences in Southridge. This home was fully renovated and updated in 2018 while preserving the context of the original architecture. Original details include clerestory windows and the stone façade. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths with expansive views of the San Jacinto mountains. New gourmet kitchen with Bosch appliances, quartz counters and backsplash, custom walnut cabinets, new baths, new HVAC, new electrical and plumbing, new roof, earthquake retrofitting, new salt water pool, spa, and fire pit, and professionally landscaped grounds. Special design features include polished concrete floors, a sleek gas fireplace, designer light fixtures and hardware, and LED recessed lighting. The indoor-outdoor open plan has walls of glass with new Milgard dual-pane windows, a two-car finished garage, a water filtration system and softener, and fully-owned Solar. Smart Home technology controls the AC, sprinklers, hot tub, lights, speakers, and cameras. Featured during Modernism Week by Atomic Ranch magazine, this tastefully renovated and updated home, is also been a very successful vacation rental. The new Buyers are from Los Angeles and have expanded their business to Palm Springs and are delighted to have such a lovely place to call home while working – and relaxing and enjoying the views – in Palm Springs!
