Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern

Overview

Mid-century modern real estate abounds in the elegant resort city of Palm Springs, which became a hotspot for this striking architectural style after 1945. Always attractive to adventurous buyers, these houses characteristically feature sharp, asymmetrical geometry, with trapezoidal surfaces, low-pitched roofs, and post-and-beam design features. Despite their striking appearances, though, Palm Springs mid-century modern homes for sale are built for people first, with open spaces and big windows.

Explore Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern Homes For Sale

With new builds occasionally appearing in the listings, mid-century modern architecture has never quite gone out of style in Palm Springs. In fact, the desert city is so strongly associated with this modernist movement that more than one local company offers guided tours of residential neighborhoods.

The origins of Palm Springs mid-century modern real estate was a utopian desire to create dwellings that were more distinctly "human" than pre-war houses. This philosophy—and midcentury modern is definitely more of a philosophy than a style—is reflected in flowing interior spaces and expanses of uninterrupted windows that drench residents in natural sunlight. These homes are constructed of natural materials, like wood, stone, and concrete. And you'll find they establish a unique continuity with the outside world by using balconies and decks, overhanging roofs and pergolas, and huge sliding glass doors.

At first glance, Palm Springs homes for sale may call to mind the Hollywood elite of the 1950s who once called the city home—people like Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, and Cary Grant. However, even the oldest of these homes have undergone rejuvenation over the years to better match 21st century lifestyles. In other words, buying a mid-century modern home is an opportunity to own an iconic piece of Southern California real estate while taking advantage of the latest household conveniences and features. Some common contemporary features that you'll find in these listings include:

  • free-standing spa bathtubs
  • quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances
  • smart home and security systems
  • new HVAC systems
  • polyurethane foam roofing

Amenities Near Palm Springs Mid-Century Modern Real Estate

As a resort city on the edge of the Sonoran desert, Palm Springs has become famous for amenities that make it the perfect escape from the hurly burly of Los Angeles. These include natural wonders, like Coachella Valley, Big Morongo Wildlife Reserve, and the various healing hot springs from which the city first took its name. With about 350 days of sunshine each year, desert hiking, cycling, and horseback riding are extremely popular local pastimes too. And though Palm Springs is definitely a city you'll want a car to get around in, many of its neighborhoods are surprisingly walkable. It's not unusual to see locals out for morning strolls before the sun gets too warm.

In addition, Palm Springs is home to more than a dozen resort hotels and spas, hundreds of fine dining establishments, and great shopping in places like the historic Palm Canyon Drive, Desert Hills Premium Outlets, and the Gardens of El Paseo. The city also hosts a number of world-class festivals, including the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Coachella Music Festival, and Modernism Week, which celebrates the masterworks of Palm Springs mid-century modern real estate.

Palm Springs homes for sale are popular with established professionals who'll be occasionally commuting to Los Angeles or elsewhere in Southern California. Taking the Santa Monica Freeway (I-10), an Amtrak train, or a flight from Palm Springs International Airport makes it easy to connect with downtown LA for business or pleasure. And there are so many attractive amenities along the way to Los Angeles—like casinos, upscale outlet shopping, and hiking trails—that the journey is often as appealing as the destination.
