Description by House and Homes Palm Springs

This rare and incredible home is one of two B-4 plans ever built. Custom designed by Palmer & Krisel to fit the pie shaped lot at the end of the “Bulb” (Cul-de-sac) and built by developers Maus & Holstein in 1958, the main house features 3 Bedroom, 2 Baths, an Open Living Room / Dining Room with High Angled Wood Beamed Ceilings, Clearstory Windows, a Social Gourmet Kitchen Design with spacious Breakfast Room looking out to the pool and backyard.

This home is in it’s original floor-plan but updated for 21st Century Living, featuring Tiled Flooring throughout and Custom Bathrooms.

Additionally a detached Casita provides a spacious Guest Suite and/or Pool House with a Full Bath, Sitting Area and Wet-Bar.

This incredible home maintains all of it’s original Architectural elements, featuring a unique “Shed-Sunflap” roof-line. Krisel states that the “Flap” was designed to come from the the front, through the house and out the rear, bringing the indoors and outdoors together.

The Entertainers backyard features a new Pool with Waterfall Spa, Outdoor Dining, Fire-pit and Sun Lounging amongst the Architectural Landscaping. Developers Maus & Holstein concluded that Palmer & Krisel’s Valley of the Sun tract “displayed the hopefulness and easy lifestyle of Modernism in the 1950’s”, that statement still rings true today…Desert Living at it’s best!
