This wildly stylized two-bedroom condo in Palm Springs is part of the Royal Hawaiian Estates, a kitschy Polynesian-inspired complex designed by modern architects Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison in 1959 and 1960.

The interiors of this particular unit certainly play up that heritage, with carved posts, bamboo paneling, and other tiki-style highlights. In fact, per the listing, many of the unit’s interior design features have been salvaged from former theme restaurants and tiki bars.

The 1,289-square-foot unit has an open living area and a partially enclosed kitchen with a breakfast bar. The roomy master bedroom includes a large closet space and an en-suite bathroom.

Sliding glass doors throughout the condo let in plenty of natural light and lead to a concrete patio with gardens and plenty of seating space.

A single carport-covered parking space is included with the unit, while shared amenities in the complex include carefully landscaped grounds, a funky polygonal swimming pool, and cable TV.

Asking price is $419,000, with HOA dues of $474 per month.
