A Palm Springs home designed by modernist architect William Krisel for the family who still owns it is for sale on the Kings Point development in Palm Springs.
The price is $ 1.25 million.
Completed in 1969, the 2,554-square-meter residence made of pure white brick, stucco and glass is located across from the fairways of the Indian Canyon Country Club. It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an open floor plan.
Glass walls and terrazzo floors fill the house.
A series of windows in the clergy line a pop-up to the flat roof, adding in the natural light that floods the living room with its towering white brick fireplace.
Further highlights are a glazed bar area.
There is a converted walk-in shower in the master bathroom.
The sellers updated the house five years ago with world-class appliances in the gourmet kitchen, solar panels on the roof, and an electric charging station for cars.
Outside, the nearly 4-acre site offers desert landscapes, water features, a mature citrus garden, and several entertainment and lounge areas.
There is also a freestanding hot tub.
Louise Hampton of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties has the listing.
Krisel, who died in 2017 at the age of 92, was one of Southern California’s most prolific architects, whose work included the futuristic House of Tomorrow, which recently sold for $ 2.6 million. He cemented his legacy in the post-war real estate boom with affordable tracts connecting indoor and outdoor spaces.
Other works include customs houses and commercial structures.
In the book “William Krisels Palm Springs: The Language of Modernity” about his work, photos of the Kings Point house under construction and then completed are shown. It is one of 43 modern mid-century homes that Krisel designed between 1968 and 1970 for developer Robert Grundt in this South Palm Springs golfing community.
