Just in time for Modernism Week, this updated midcentury condo in Palm Springs is looking for a new owner.
Built in 1964, it’s part of the Canyon View Estates community south of the city’s downtown area. The cluster of spacious, single-family-style residences was the first complex of its kind built in Palm Springs. Featuring just under 200 units designed by the prolific modernist duo Dan Palmer and William Krisel, it was advertised at the time as a place offering “prestige homes for prestige people.”
This particular prestige home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms spread across 1,632 square feet of living space. Walls of glass and clerestory windows fill the unit with natural light, and an unusual umbrella-style ceiling in the living room gives the space an open, airy appearance.
Porcelain tile floors run throughout the unit and the kitchen is equipped with contemporary appliances, quartz countertops, and walnut cabinetry.
The condo is fronted with ornamental breeze blocks and a small concrete patio, along with a handsome stone wall alongside a carport. Within the community is a shared pool and spa.
Asking price is $569,000, with HOA dues of $320 per month.
