This landmark International Style early modern home by master architect Albert Frey is listed as one of the City's 100 most important buildings. Palm Springs Historic Site #100, its Class 1 designation means the property is eligible for significant property tax savings through the Mills Act. Frey’s only realized tract of single-family homes, Bel Vista stands in tribute to his mentor, Le Corbusier. Following a thoughtful and comprehensive restoration, integrity and authenticity abound in this early modern gem. Profiled in Atomic Ranch and photographed by Julius Shulman, Frey’s Bel Vista is an important part of Palm Springs’ architectural fabric. An abundance of windows and doors in common and private spaces create a heightened sense of indoor/outdoor living. It’s a light and bright showplace. Bakelite doorknobs, restored bathrooms to keen period detail, beautiful polished concrete, tile and cork floors, vintage lighting and original color palette bring its period of significance to life. Upgrades include en-suite MBR, newer pool/spa with wireless controls, 200amp service, energy-efficient laminated-glass doors and windows, new heat/AC in 2018 and an outdoor shower. Its grand 10,000sf lot – on land you own – is in famed Movie Colony East and complemented with open spaces, citrus trees and great views. Part of the City's architectural legacy, it’s quintessential Palm Springs. Enjoy power pole-free views, sweet sunrises and magnificent mountain vistas from your own Albert Frey.
