Subdued on the outside but flashy inside

The asking price of a snazzy, midcentury Palm Springs estate built for venture capitalist Jerome Factor, a cousin to businessman Max Factor, has been chopped by more than $1 million.

Built in 1969, the five-bedroom, three-bath house sits on sprawling lot measuring 24,394 square feet. It’s subdued on the outside but bold on the inside with original interiors by the late acclaimed designer Richard Himmel. Fans of his will be excited to hear the pad comes fully furnished. Its colorful modern art and furnishings, set against a glossy black and white motif, are valued at $1.2 million.

On the street-facing side, its white stucco facade is totally windowless. But it opens up in the back, where floor-to-ceiling walls of glass offer views of a sleek pool, and beyond the backyard, of Indian Canyons Golf Resort the San Jacinto peaks.

It’s now listed for $2.495 million.
