MID-CENTURY STYLE WITH 21ST CENTURY COMFORTS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Palm Springs - The Elrod House

Resort Style Home With Mountain Views Close To All

Located in the historic district of Racquet Club Road Estates, we renovated this home to retain the original mid-century charm, yet updated for today's living comfort. Originally designed by the famous interior designer, Arthur Elrod, this customized home built by the Alexander Construction company, has many unique features not seen in the typical Racquet Club Estates homes.

The home has a true indoor/outdoor feel with walls of windows overlooking the pool and spa and multiple patios. You'll enjoy a large dining area with a table that can seat 8 people comfortably. No 60s home is complete with out a full wetbar to mix your favorite cocktails. The open living room features the original funnel-style vintage fireplace to warm you on a chilly winter night. Multiple seating to entertain and enjoy your favorite movies and media.

The furnishings include a mix of vintage and mid-century styles, including an Eames lounge chair and rocker, vintage teak, Nelson lamps, with lighting.

Each bedroom features a queen sized bed. The two baths have been updated as well; the master bath opens to the outside for easy access to the pool as well as the outdoor shower.

Outside, you'll enjoy a pool that is big enough to swim laps. There's also a built in spa. Plenty of lounging areas to soak in the sun and mountain views. There's a large outdoor living area for lounging.

Dine al fresco on the lania outside the living room, a wonderful place for morning coffee or lunch.

For the cook, you'll enjoy new appliances in a custom designed kitchen, with tons of counter space to spread out. Fully stocked for your vacation entertaining needs.

You'll love the convenience of this home, a short drive to all the local attractions, shopping, dining and entertainment of Palm Springs, while staying in a vintage mid-century home.

I bought this because of its historic qualities, being Arthur Elrod's original home in Palm Springs. It is unique compared to any other home in the neighborhood. I love the location in Racquet Club Estates, one of my favorite mid-century neighborhoods in all of Palm Springs.

What I love about this house, is the cozy feel of being in the living room. Walls of glass open the house to the outdoors, and it truly has an indoor outdoor feel to it- The unique fireplace is so cozy at night during a chilly winter evening. I also love the huge back yard, where you can enjoy views of the mountains, some of the best in town.
