3 Bed

1150 sqft
MLS# PF18252603
Welcome home to a cherished house designed by master architect Albert Frey. Designated Historic Site #100 by the City of Palm Springs, this International Style early modern gem is listed as one of the City's 100 most important buildings. Profiled in Atomic Ranch and Architect & Engineer, photographed by Julius Shulman and featured many times during Modernism Week, the Bel Vista residence is an important example of Palm Springs’ architecture. Frey's plan features an abundance of windows and exterior doors in common and private spaces, creating different entrances and a heightened sense of indoor/outdoor living. The home is a light and bright showplace. A thoughtful restoration brings its period of significance to life, including Bakelite doorknobs, striking period bathrooms, beautiful polished concrete, tile and cork floors, period lighting and an original color palette. Upgrades include renovated baths to keen period detail, newer pool & spa with wireless controls, 200amp service, laminated-glass doors and windows, new heat/AC in 2018 and a wonderful outdoor shower. The 10,000sf lot – on fee land you own - has lots of potential, expansive open spaces, a citrus grove and nice mountain views, all complemented by the central location in famed Movie Colony East. Its Class 1 designation means the property is eligible for Mills Act and significant property tax savings. Its importance to the architectural fabric of Palm Springs, authenticity and integrity are apparent throughout.
