Here’s a desert retreat that’s hard to beat. Located at the Royal Hawaiian condo complex in Palm Springs, the unit has plenty of living space and a wealth of midcentury style.

The kitschy, Polynesian-themed community was designed by influential architects Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison. Constructed in 1961, the 40 units are a well-preserved reminder of the area’s history as a haven of modern architecture and design.

This particular dwelling has three bedrooms and two bathrooms spread across 1,510 square feet of floor area, with walls of glass, terrazzo floors, clerestory windows, and a pitched ceiling. Elegant screen doors separate the kitchen from the open living area, and the latter space from the guest room.

Other features include original cabinetry, built-in shelving, a vintage Westinghouse oven, and an in-unit washer and dryer.

Sitting on a 2,178-square-foot lot, the condo also includes a bit of private outdoor space, including a pair of covered patios. Shared amenities include a swimming pool, spa, and festive landscaping throughout the multi-acre complex.

Asking price is $425,000, with HOA dues of $490 per month.
