Description

In 1955, the first McDonalds was constructed, Coca-Cola was first put into cans and new laws were put in place requiring seat belts to be installed in all new cars. Average wages were $3,851 per year and the average cost of a new home in the country was about $10,950. The economy was booming and Americans reveled in their prosperity. Resort towns grew fast during this time and Palm Springs was no exception. A favorite of the Hollywood elite, Palm Springs was now accessible to a broader market. Now famous architects took inspiration from the desert to create completely new ways of thinking about architecture and Palm Springs quickly became the center of mid-century design, entertainment and lifestyle. This completely walled and gated property is a perfect example of this era. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms off a single hallway, an open concept living area and a kidney shaped, saltwater pool and spa, this home is a perfect example of Palm Springs mid-century modern design.
