Property Description

A vision of creativity of a bygone era, the true architectural embodiment of Desert Modern. One of a small collection of properties considered Organic Modern, to grace the captivating landscape of the Coachella Valley, the home and its grounds were designed by foresighted Hugh Kaptur, 1958. Heralded as one of the most prolific architects of his time, Kaptur considered the entire parcel when creating an unmatched environment to enjoy the spectacular setting. Illuminated meandering paths formed from the native mineral terrain& cascading rock waterfalls envelop the home, its myriad terraces& verdant gardens. The distinct facade, surrounding walls of glass& graphic roof-line canopy brilliantly mirror clad, reflecting the everchanging tableau of light, horizon& scenic wonder afforded by the property's ideal elevation& location. Panoramic vistas from nearly every vantage are complemented by delightful details; thoughtfully curated viewing and entertaining areas; a luminous pool; and a graphic assemblage of mature palms. Further enhancing the interior connection to the environmental context are substantial exposed rock formations& access to a continuous water feature& Koi fish habitat. Albert Frey, a groundbreaking contributor to modern architecture expanded the property, including guest house of equal visual interest& design integrity. 1 of only 3 famed properties on this private ridge, protected by a gated road& set above downtown Palm Springs, an opportunity beyond compare.
