Palm Springs Homes are unique in the world for their striking designs, amazing mountain and valley vistas and an architectural legacy of noted architects such as Richard Neutra, Pierre Koening, E. Stewart Williams, John Porter Clark, John Lautner and William Cody, among many others. ...and today's acclaimed architects of Palm Springs Homes include Guy Drier, Narendra Patel and James Choiffi.
As a Palm Springs Realtor for Palm Springs Homes by Buyers of distinctive houses, I find every one of my Buyers valuing what makes Palm Springs Homes and architectural designs so special -- the seamless merging of interior to exterior, strikingly designed spaces with sheets of glass emphasizing the valley and mountain vistas, and rightly positioning the homes' orientation -- e.g., Palm Springs Homes in the Southridge and Las Palmas Neighborhoods which favor the striking West views of the San Jacinto Mountain range.
The Desert Modern Architecture of Palm Springs Homes does connect to the Hollywood Hills. One example is the Gantert House designed by Pierre Koenig in 1981. I was privileged recently to tour this home, finding a sheep fixated looking out at the magnificent, multi-million dollar Los Angeles view.
This house is representative of Koenig's incredible design, which extends the house footprint via cantilevering, to the West and South thus transforming the hillside lot's 300 square feet into a home estimated at 2,880 square feet.
Inside, just like many Palm Springs Homes, the open spaces, the clerestory windows, walls of towering glass and extensive use of sliding glass doors open the interior perspectives outward to the priceless exterior vistas.
This home is preserved forever by Julius Shulman as one of his great architectural photographic works.
Today, the William Holden Palm Springs Home in the Southridge Neighborhood is much like the Hollywood Hills Gantert House given its' awesome perch on Southridge's Hillside, facing West, overlooking Palm Springs and The San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains.
Julius Shulman completed some of his career's finest architectural photography on Palm Springs Homes...one great example of his legacy being the spectacular photographs of the Palm Springs Kaufmann House in the Las Palmas Neighborhood.
Palm Springs Homes are connected to the Hollywood Hills, to Julius Shulman and his master works. I encourage you to discover one of Palm Springs Homes with distinctive architectural character and dramatic views for yourself.
However, you will have to bring your own SHEEP!
