Be impressed by this mid-century modern home in the “Movie Colony” neighborhood of Palm Springs, CA.
There are plenty of choices available: ruby-red rooms, and amethyst rooms, and rooms of sapphire blue. This nine-bedroom and 12-bathroom house on the market is available for $4.4 million.
Built in 1966 by modernist architect Howard Lapham, the 9,400-square-foot place is the largest known Mid-Century Modern residence in a city known for its architectural schemes. The city is well-known for its Mid-Century Modern architectural style, and many residences have been constructed following this trend.
The house was painted beige. Each room is decorated in a different vivid color or theme. The kitchen is eggshell blue. A powder room is covered in golden tiles and has mirrors on walls, floors, ceilings, and countertops. And the dining room has violet walls, drapes, and light fixtures. There’s also a red-and-white game room.
“They love the house, but desire to spend more time overseas in Hong Kong and mainland China,” says Histed.
They’re hoping “Mid-Century enthusiasts interested in preserving the historical features and prominence of the property” will snap the place up.
It will “most likely be a buyer from out of the area, possibly someone involved in television, cinema, or the arts,” Histed says.
The living room features walls of glass, a Roy Lichtenstein print, and a glamorous bar decorated with marble, wood, and leopard print.
“Nothing like it exists in Palm Springs,” says listing agent Scott Histed with Bennion Deville Homes.
The eventual buyers can count on the current owners to help retain the home’s authenticity and style. They have one of the largest collections of Arthur Elrod furniture and accessories and would consider including the items currently in the home in a negotiated offer.
