Deservedly, one of only a very few properties in Palm Springs, CA that has earned a Class 1 Historic Designation, DESERT HOLLY has been recognized for it’s distinct, iconic and quintessential Mid Century Modern architecture. AND it’s preservation and stewardship for this sparkling gem of a community.
Developed by respected builder William B. O’Brien of Long Beach, CA in 1957, This intimate enclave of just 14 residences built around a pool and pristinely manicured and landscaped common area, has angled glass walls with glass to the beamed ceilings that capture spectacular views. #5 is a corner unit in the far NW corner of the community and has an unobstructed view of snowcapped mountains as a a backdrop, with palm trees in the foreground. Truly breathtaking.
Whether you are looking for a ‘pied a terre’ in Palm Springs or a full time home, this little jewel box of a property will provide a serene spot .
Light and bright and airy, #5 has been lovingly restored over the past 5 yrs and many original features remain. A unique, lighting fixture in the eating area, the original hearth and unique steel fireplace (gas), the original jalousie windows that allow for cross ventilation, the original bathtub all add to the mid century charm.
Owners selected high end appliances and cabinetry in 2018, all which complement the original spirit of the property.
Added bonus is that with Historic Designation, DESERT HOLLY enjoys benefits of The Mills Act, which gives property owners a significant reduction of their property taxes. This, coupled with the careful management of the well run HOA … which deserves bragging rights for it’s low $315 per mo fee … allows fro affordable living.
A wonderful location close to everything rounds out a wonderful place to live. Style, pedigree, location. This is a winning property.
This is a must see.
