Jack Meiselman is one of a handful of designers who, in the 1950s and ’60s, shaped the look of Palm Springs. He is responsible for more than 200 affordable and modestly-sized homes, most of them quite simple but not without a little flair.

This three-bedroom and two-bathroom house in Racquet Club East is among his contributions. Built in 1959, its current owner, Jaime Kowal, a photographer who co-owns and designs vacation properties in the desert and Canada, gave it a fashionable remodel that was featured last year in Sunset magazine.

Most Meiselman homes, including this one, sit on a one-quarter acre lot with a pool. This 1,200-square-foot dwelling also features Meiselman’s characteristic clerestory windows, galley kitchen, and tongue and groove ceilings. New touches include a suspended fireplace, Bosch appliances, banana leaf wallpaper, and Commune and Tabarka Studio tile.

Last sold in 2013 for $320,000, the property is now listed for $715,000.
