Palm Springs, CA Private Residence
Doing second homes can be such a blast for me. All of the fears of making mistakes and the seriousness in every selection are forgotten. A second home is an escape and as such, it is more about fun and comfort. This house in Palm Springs is a perfect example of that.
My client, whom I had already completed two homes for, asked me to come take a look at a house she was considering buying. Mid-century modern architecture is one of the main reasons people buy in the desert oasis. The issue was, the house was in deplorable condition, uninhabitable in my estimation. I gutted the house back to its frame and reorganized the floor plan, updated all the systems, rebuilt the pool and all of the landscaping…and I did it in 90 days!
The result is a stunning, sexy, sophisticated get-away with a modern custom kitchen and a master bathroom where the entire back wall of the shower is glass with a view of the pool and surrounding mountains! Now that is what I call a weekend retreat!
