A lovely example of mid-20th century domestic architecture, courtesy of this 1950s Palmer and Krisel-designed three-bedroom midcentury modern property in Los Angeles, California, USA.
A gem from the south Californian architects, described by the agent as being in the ‘Palm Springs style’ as well as being ‘light-filled, comfortable & unpretentious’, with notable features including signature exposed beam ceilings, butterfly roof, extensive glazing, an architectural stone wall, plus a floor to ceiling fireplace.
Key to the overall design is a seamless indoor/outdoor flow, with the interior merging with mature trees and greenery, not to mention a pool and spa. This is a house for living in, but one that’s designed very much for entertaining.
All the key features seem well preserved, sitting alongside modern upgrades for areas like the kitchen and bathrooms. Indeed, there are two bathrooms, along with three bedrooms (one described as a ‘generous master suite’ with walk in closet and limestone bath) plus an updated ‘gourmet’ kitchen, alongside plenty of open reception space. The entire lot covers 12,064 sq. ft.
If you want to live the dream, it’s on the market for $1,550,000.
