Palm Springs | $2.488 Million

A midcentury-modern house with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse, on a 0.2-acre lot

This 1957 house was designed by William Krisel, a prolific local architect, and has been owned by the same family for four decades. It was recently renovated, and additions included new appliances and cherry-wood cabinets in the kitchen and round soaking tubs in the bathrooms.

The property is in the Twin Palms neighborhood, near the city’s main thoroughfares, about a five-minute walk from a coffee shop, several restaurants and the Ace Hotel & Swim Club. It is 10 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport and half an hour from Coachella Valley National Wildlife Refuge. La Quinta is 45 minutes away. Los Angeles is a two-hour drive.

Size: 2,205 square feet

Price per square foot: $1,128

Indoors: A path leads from the sidewalk, through a yard landscaped with drought-tolerant plants, to the entry.

The front door, carved from African mahogany, opens into a living room with an original fireplace, exposed ceiling beams, concrete floors and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on a patio and swimming pool.

This space is open to a dining area and kitchen with Fisher & Paykel appliances, a built-in bar cabinet and a large window over the sink with a view of the pool.

All three bedrooms are off the living area. The primary bedroom has a custom-built platform bed with coordinating night stands, large windows and a private, canopy-covered patio with an outdoor shower; the en suite bathroom has a deep green, Spanish-style tile floor and a generously proportioned round soaking tub. The other two bedrooms also have custom-built furniture; they share a full bathroom.
