K0010 The Retro House City I.D.#3103 T.O.T. Permit: 3085

This is undoubtedly one of the coolest mid century modern homes in Palm Springs. With its original kitchen and colorful tiled bathrooms in beautiful condition, plus all the modern conveniences and brand new period-influenced furniture installed throughout for 2016, this home is ready to enjoy in retro style. Impeccably preserved and maintained over the years, this home was clearly almost never used by the original owners. It’s impressive enough that it’s scheduled to be featured in the Modernism Week 2016 Signature Home Tour, a carefully curated tour of the best of Desert Modern Architecture, featuring homes chosen for their architecture, interiors, gardens, iconic features and grounds… those that epitomize Palm Springs and what makes life and architecture in the desert unique.

From the front entry of this comfortable 2,352 square foot home, guests are immediately welcomed by the home’s signature roofline and original architectural features and colors, plus all the newly installed Scandinavian modern furnishings and unique artwork. Just inside the entry hall to the right is the living room with fireplace, 55 inch HDTV and plenty of lounge seating for everyone. This is the perfect place to gather for cocktails before dinner. The adjacent dining room also has a fireplace, and boasts a huge oval dining table with seating for up to 12 hungry friends. The breakfast room and kitchen are just off the dining room, where you’ll find everything you need to cook and bartend for your entire group. There are two guest bedrooms off the kitchen, each with a queen size bed, HDTV, one with an awesome west view through its corner windows, and both are near the first guest bathroom with step in shower. The laundry room is also located at this end of the house, with access to the pool deck, as well as the driveway.

At the north end of the house, to the left of the front entrance, you’ll find the master bedroom with a king bed, HDTV, private bathroom with tub shower and original tilework, and direct access to the pool deck. Across the hall is a guest bedroom with king bed, HDTV, nice view out to the hedged front courtyard and direct access to the guest bathroom, so it can double as a second master bedroom. The last guest bedroom is adjacent to the guest bath with tub shower, and offers a queen bed, courtyard view and HDTV.

The real magic happens out back, where you'll step out to the refreshing and sparkling blue original kidney-shaped saltwater swimming pool, as well as the matching spa that was newly installed for 2016. The landscaping is a combination of natural desert scape and artificial turf to add color and texture around the sunning pads and lounge furniture. There is also a natural gas fire feature next to the spa for the ultimate in evening cocktail lounging and enjoying the mountain and architectural view back to the west over the house. You’ll also appreciate the outdoor dining (dining table for 6 is not pictured), fireplace and lounging options under the covered patio, and the natural gas fired barbecue grill. All combined, this is the quintessential Palm Springs poolside retreat!

There is also a two car garage and parking for two or three more cars in the driveway. Directly across the street is Ruth Hardy Park, with public tennis courts and play areas for the little vacationers. This home is also just a short walk to uptown Palm Springs, where you’ll find all the newest and hippest restaurants, shops and galleries the desert has to offer. It just doesn’t get better than this!

COACHELLA MUSIC FESTIVAL: This home is just a 5 minute drive to the shuttle stops in Palm Springs.

The house was generally well stocked- there was both a French press and automatic coffee maker. The variety of pool floaties in the garage were the delight of our young niece and kept her entertained during our stay. The instruction booklet explained everything we needed to know, and we appreciated that much of the home was controlled by a single remote (spa temp, etc.) Everyone in our group loved the outdoor space, especially the fire area in the evenings since it got chilly during our stay (in the first week of March).

We loved staying at the Retro House. The decor is amazing! Wonderful location - just a short scenic walk to downtown. The house is very spacious, even for a group of 10 adults. The backyard is absolute paradise, with almost full sun all day until it goes behind the beautiful mountains. The house is stocked with everything you need. (Just a note this property is managed by a vacation rental company). We did not want to leave and would love to stay here again.

I booked this home for my friend's bachelorette weekend. There were 10 of us in total and this home was absolutely perfect. The home is picture perfect - great vibe, amazing outdoor area. It was absolutely perfect. The location is amazing and we walked a lot from the home. Private and spacious. The pool was so warm! Everything was better than expected. Would definitely recommend for large groups.

A wonderful place for our family to be together over the New Years weekend. So many different scenic places for those who wanted to be alone to read and yet so many places for us all to be together to talk and celebrate, so many thoughtful touches, so well stocked and organized for our ten people, who ranged in age from 2 to 77. We all loved it.

Great trip to Palm Springs. Perfect for a group of 8. The backyard does appear a big bigger in photos, however it fit our group perfectly! Kitchen stocked full of things that you’ll need (grilling tools, plenty of plates/silverware/glasses). We felt super safe in the home and close to everything!

This house is amazing. It was the perfect spot for our girls weekend. So much space and the pool and hot tub were perfect for relaxing and with the mountains in the background the sunsets were amazing. The location is super convenient being close to the airport and downtown. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Palm Springs!
