Krisel Mid-Century

Palm Desert, California, United States
A Modernist Desert Home Conceived by William Krisel

This two-bedroom home in Palm Desert was designed by renowned architect William Krisel as part of the now-famous Sandpiper complex. With its dramatic low-slung roofs and sand-colored stucco, it is believed by many to be the finest mid-century townhouse complex in the Coachella Valley. The house itself is an elegant, open-plan space that's flooded with light, and looks out over grassy lawns and a large community pool.

William Krisel has a remarkable legacy, and his dedication to the creation of affordable modern housing contributed to the creation of around 30,000 homes across Southern California alone. In fact, in the Fifties, he is said to have helped double the size of Palm Springs by creating complexes like the Sandpiper. 

The collection of 306 homes in 17 circles was built in phases between 1958 and 1969. Although the homes were created using standard templates, they retain their own personalities with unique rooflines and varied use of concrete, shadow and breeze blocks. Owners were offered flexible room dividers to customize interior spaces, and each home had a different orientation, to maximize privacy. Large windows opening onto covered patios allowed for year-round indoor-outdoor living, and this particular home boasts a 36ft long wall of sliding glass doors onto its mountain-view patio.

This vacation home for rent in California has been restored and furnished in period style, making it a great oportunity for lovers of mid-century design to stay in a historical landmark.

This home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with outdoor dining and a gas grill. It shares a pool and shuffleboard court with other homes in the community. It's available for 28-day rentals, starting on the first day of each month.


THE COACHELLA VALLEY

This vacation home for rent in California is located in Palm Desert, which is adjacent to the famous desert city of Palm Springs. It's just five minutes walk from the luxurious shopping and restaurants of El Paseo, considered the Rodeo Drive of the desert, seven miles from 12 country clubs, and minutes from the Palm Springs Art Museum.

Like its neighbor, Palm Desert is backed by the San Jacinto mountains that rise above the desert floor and are lined with miles of hiking trails at a cooler elevation. The Bump and Grind Loop is a local favorite, a 3-mile trek that climbs 960 feet and culminates in a panoramic view of Palm Springs.

Both Joshua Tree National Park and the breathtaking Indian Cove are within an hour's drive from the house. There are several unique attractions and venues to visit such as the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum, the famed Integratron, and historic Pioneertown. A kitschy Hollywood relic founded in the Forties as an authentic frontier town movie set, it now houses shops, cafes and galleries, as well as the famous music venue Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace.
