Palm Springs is known for its midcentury architecture, and this property is one of the city’s gems. The Ocotillo Lodge was completed in 1957 and designed by influential architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel. The complex was built by developers George and Bob Alexander—whose famed Alexander Houses have something of a cult following among lovers of midcentury modern.
Residence 111 is the largest unit in the complex and is the only two-story unit on the premises, according to the listing.
The two-bedroom, three-bathroom dwelling comes with its own private swimming pool, which curves around the corner of the unit, and three outdoor patio areas. Midcentury hallmarks such as walls of glass and clerestory windows appear throughout, but the unit has clearly been updated with new finishes, most visible in the kitchen.
The unit’s other notable features include a wet bar, in-unit laundry, and recessed lighting. The 1,500-square-foot unit is listed for $699,000 with Scott Cook and Rob Rueth of Architecture8.
