About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Outdoor Covered Patios, Pool And Hot-tub

City ID 2604 TOT #3104

The Racquet Club House was built in 1960 by the Alexander Building Company as a vacation home for busy city dweller. Located centrally in the historic Racquet Club Estates, it’s surrounded on all sides by other restored mid-century Alexanders for that true historic feel.

The house just emerging from a year-long ground up restoration that updated all systems and features to meet today’s demanding requirements - making living in the desert an effortless and pleasant experience. The house was also featured on the 2014 Modernism Week house tour as one of the top attractions.

With a traditional Alexander layout it features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and sleeps 6 people in bedrooms configured with one king, one queen and two twin beds. All bedrooms have direct access, through sliding doors, to a large garden, patio and pool area – making for a great indoor/outdoor experience.

The kitchen is of course all new with all stainless appliances and Caesar stone counter tops, and also features wonderful mountain views through the clerestory windows that fill the entire west facing wall of the living room and kitchen.

Lovers of modern furniture will fill right at home in this house with a selection of original pieces from Eames, Nelson, Noguchi, Kartell, Marimekko and many other original manufacturer. The owner is a furniture connoisseur and is constantly on the hunt for new classic furniture to complement the design of the house.

The living room features ample seating for enjoying pre-dinner cocktails while being cozy around the gas burning fireplace. Large windows towards the garden also bring light and outdoor views into the house – this really is modern indoor/outdoor living at its best.

The Media Room is centered around a large flat screen TV with built in Netflix, YouTube and other smart apps. A Netflix account has already been set up so unlimited movie watching is an option - even though we also recommend trying all the other things that Palm Springs has to offer :-)

The outdoors presents many opportunities for relaxation – take a swim in the over sized pool with a built in tanning shelf (9” of water) or jump into the hot tub next to the outdoor gas burning fire pit for a late night star gazing session. A large shade structure shields you from the sun during the day once your tanning sessions are over.

An outdoor shower makes rinsing off and getting ready for a night out in town easy and convenient – this is always one of the most loved features when guests visit.

Least but not last, a nice sized lawn ads some color and a great place for playing with kids or just hang out.

The entire house and garden is covered by a wireless network so getting your daily fix of internet news and updates is only a click away.

A guest house is also on site but not available for rental as it’s exclusively used by the owner.

Palm Springs is the perfect weekend or vacation getaway for busy city dwellers. It often been said that once you arrive in Palm Springs time slows down. The Racquet Club House is located in the historic Racquet Club Estate in northern Palm Springs - a neighborhood having one of the largest concentration of mid-century houses in the country. Originally developed by the Alexander Building Company in the later 50's and early 60's as vacation homes for celebrities and the masses alike, most houses have today been restored and offer an amazing time travel opportunity back to the jet set age of what makes Palm Springs what it is today.
