The middle to late 40s in Palm Springs saw the creation of some of the city’s most important architecture, including the Van Horn Residence by famed Palm Springs architect Herbert W. Burns. Designed in 1948, the El Mirador Park home sits on a grand, corner lot of nearly 10,000sf – on fee land you own – with stunning, unobstructed mountain views. Authentic and intact, the historic integrity of the home is apparent at every turn. At 2,258sf, the home has many of Burns’ character defining features: stacked sandstone pylons, vertical poles, steel casement windows, stacked stone fireplace, glowing colored concrete floors, glass block and original lighting. All three bedrooms are en suite – two feature a large vintage bath and dressing area of original built-in cabinetry. The separate casita has a sitting area and a plumbed room that held its original kitchen. Rooms are bathed in an abundance of natural light from walls of glass. An indoor/outdoor style comes to life in every room. The renovated kitchen is great for entertaining and open to the home’s public spaces that feature large plate glass windows with stunning views to the pool and its grand views of the San Jacinto mountains. The backyard features a large pool, a separate spa, and a great covered patio from which to relax, entertain and enjoy the mountain view. Freshly painted inside, other upgrades include foam roof, new equipment and replastered saltwater pool 2015, new main house HVAC 2018, and 56-panel solar system – the large, original 1 bed, 1 bath separate casita has a brand new mini-split system. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the local preservation community, Herbert W. Burns is recognized as one of the preeminent architects in Palm Springs – this home is truly one of his finest. The home is covered in the 2018 tribute journal of the architect’s work, The Design of Herbert W. Burns. Van Horn, for whom the home is named, was a writer, from one of California’s oldest families and an actress at Paramount. The property is listed by the City of Palm Springs as an eligible historic site with potential for Mills Act and substantial property tax savings. With Albert Frey’s historic Bel Vista tract, the home of John Porter Clark, the El Mirador Hotel and other noted architecture nearby, this property is one of the finest historic properties on the market and represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own and live in one of Burns’ gracious, signature homes in an important area of Palm Springs.
