Description

Merito Manor is an architecturally significant mid century modern complex replete with exceptionally manicured grounds and five sided, heated pool. 193 W Merito is a detached 2bed/2Bath plus den unit and is ideally situated in the historic Old Las Palmas neighborhood. The home was expanded in the early 2000s by a previous owner from 1426 to1860 sq. ft. incorporating the same clerestory windows and waffle roof lines to maintain continuity while adding a den and expanding the L shaped living/dining room. It’s located two short blocks from exceptional shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities in the popular Uptown Design District. Designed by California architect Barry Berkus in 1960 the historical designation plaque on the grounds reads: ”Berkus was only 25 years old when he designed Merito Manor, using a structural ”stressed skin” folded plate roof system to give it a distinctive look and to allow column-free interiors. ”Screenwalls” of cut rock in a pattern dubbed ”peanut brittle” were placed between the thin wood columns, but these rock walls do not extend up to the roof line emphasizing that is is the thin columns, not the heavy rock walls, that support the roof and allow the post and beam structural module to be expressed, a common tenet of Modern architecture.” On December 18, 2019 the complex was designated ”The Merito Manor Historic District” #HD-8 by the City of Palm Springs.
