As a hot spot for mid-century modern architecture, the oasis city of Palm Springs has long been Southern California's capital of architectural innovation. Taking advantage of spectacular desert landscapes stretching to the crests of the San Jacinto Mountains, many Palm Springs homes for sale marry form and function to create dramatic tableaux that go far beyond mere "curb appeal." In neighborhoods like Twin Palms, Vista Las Palmas, and Deepwell, for instance, you'll find classic examples of mid-century modern design, with characteristic asymmetry, low-pitched roofs, and post-and-beam construction. And elsewhere in Palm Springs, you'll find art deco, contemporary, and even Ranch homes that share the same local commitment to the cutting edge. Perhaps more than anywhere else in SoCal, Palm Springs real estate has style.

Explore Palm Springs Homes For Sale
Palm Springs is most famous for its density of mid-century modern and art deco buildings, which has inspired generations of builders, designers, and architects to contribute their own masterworks to the city's neighborhoods. Famous examples include Richard Neutra's Kaufmann House and Frank Sinatra's former estate in Rancho Mirage, both of which frequently attract guided tours. Not all Palm Springs mid-century modern homes for sale are museum pieces, however—discerning buyers will find sterling examples of desert modernism across the city's communities.
The more contemporary architecture of Palm Springs continues the mid-century tradition, but often updates 60s-style design for the new millennium. These homes frequently used curved surfaces and découpage to riff on the dominance of modernism, while adding modern conveniences and features that make them uniquely livable. For anyone looking for a forward-thinking construction that reflects the latest architectural developments yet hasn't forgotten the past, these Palm Springs homes for sale represent a great opportunity to live on the cutting edge.
The majority of homes in Palm Springs are less ostentatious, but they're still extremely attractive to buyers looking for affordable family living. These include a broad variety of Mediterranean or Spanish Ranch homes that have been designed to reflect the sun-drenched lifestyles cultivated by locals. With bright stucco walls, red tile roofing, oversized windows, and overhead skylights, these homes have been crafted to offer shelter while letting in the maximum amount of natural light. Big backyards with patios and water features further accentuate the oasis-like feel that characterizes so much of this unique desert city.
Living in Palm Springs
Once upon a time, Palm Springs consisted of just a single small health resort, The Desert Inn, which began attracting visitors to the small desert town by touting the restorative qualities of the dry climate and nearby hot springs. Since then, Palm Springs has become famous for amenities and attractions that make it the perfect antidote to city life, bringing stars like Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, and Bob Hope—or, more recently, Leonardo DiCaprio and Halley Berry—attracted to the region's 350 days of sunshine. It's perhaps due to the influence of these stars that each year Palm Springs hosts a number of world-class festivals, including the Palm Springs International Film Festival and Coachella.
For all this glitz and glamor, though, Palm Springs has also become surprisingly livable. Today, the city is popular with those looking to golf during the wintertime or anyone who appreciates hiking or riding on horseback through haunting desert landscapes. Palm Springs homes for sale also put you in touch with hundreds of excellent restaurants and upscale retailers. Places like Desert Hills Premium Outlets and the Gardens of El Paseo are popular for upscale shopping, while Main Street features dozens of unique boutiques you won't find at the malls.
Hopping on the Santa Monica Freeway—or flying from Palm Springs International Airport—makes it easy to travel across the region to Los Angeles, San Bernardino, or Riverside, which is just 50 miles away. Palm Springs benefits from being far enough away from the rest of the world that it guarantees peace and serenity. At the same time, it's still close enough that you'll never feel as if you're missing out.
