About Graham Schneider
Hi Everyone. Throughout my career, in the tech world in Silicon Valley, I've built or remodeled many homes and other projects and my home in Palm Springs is my latest project. I've visited Palm Springs many times since the 80's and during a visit in 2014, for Modernism Week (in Feb. and highly recommended) I fell in love with this wonderful home, built in 1960. It was designed by Donald Wexler, an influential Mid-Century architect who had previously worked for Richard Neutra. He went on to design houses, schools, hotels, banks and the Palm Springs International Airport. Of note, he designed the 1964 home for Dinah Shore which was purchased by Leonardo DiCaprio in 2014. I'm a fan of modern contemporary and mid century design and architecture. My home in San Francisco, a custom home built in 1940 was designed by Anshen & Allen, and is believed to be their very first project. In this home I've tried with the remodel, furnishings and art, to create a feeling of: Hip and Warm - that's what I like and I hope you will too.
Graham Schneider purchased this House in 2014
Why Graham Schneider chose Ruth Hardy Park
In addition to the ARCHITECTURE, the house won me over with LOCATION, ORIENTATION AND AMAZING VIEWS. The location, in the Movie Colony, is within a few blocks of the Uptown Design District of Palm Springs which contains some of the nicest shops and restaurants in Palm Springs, it’s also around the corner from Ruth Hardy Park which is a large and beloved tree covered park in Palm Springs and which contains: 8+ tennis courts, basketball, children's play area, running track and much more.
What makes this House unique
It's also convenient to the Palm Springs Convention Center. The orientation provides a mostly South exposure which keeps the sun out of the house during the hottest months of the year but allows some sun in during the cooler months. Finally, views throughout the house are amazing. Except for the media room, every room has big mountain views.

True MCM Gem
Authentic Mid Century Modern home in the Movie Colony. Appropriately and thoughtfully appointed inside and out. Excellent communication and support. You'll want to move in.
Wonderful Vacation Home
Great home in a wonderful location. Our family enjoyed almost two weeks in Graham’s well stocked and accomodating home. His concierge, Brian, was fantastic as well. Communication was excellent from both. Highly recommend this house.
Graham is the consummate host from afar. We travel expensively and usually use Inspirato, but this experience was far superior. The home is well appointed, has all the items you need to make you feel at home. Any issue, not that there were any, were immediately mitigated by Graham. We would absolutely return! This house is fabulous for families! Thanks Graham.
What an amazing time we had! Perfection.
From the moment we arrived we felt at home. We were greeted by fabulous Rob who took us through the property and showed us how everything worked. The house was stocked with incidentals and even more...bikes, hats, sunblock, and even a welcome amenity. We would definitely book again!
Very well maintained, elegant property with great amenities for families.
Stylish and comfortable with lots of room for groups or a larger family. Great outdoor space with a good sized pool, hot tub and sheltered eating and lounge area.
Well appointed house, well maintained and in a great, quiet location. Walking distance to ‘Main Street’ Palm Springs providing great access to restaurants and shopping.
Owner and property manager very responsive. We have stayed at this property twice and would definitely recommend it.
Beautiful home. Perfect location.
Truly spectacular home in a perfect location. Had a wonderful time with a few other couples. Well stocked and comfortable. Very pretty setting and beautiful pool. Cozy fireplaces. Terrific owner and home manager. Very fun! Hope to return!
