Description


Welcome to the Shelden Estate, designed in 1936 by architects John Porter Clark and Albert Frey. This exceptionally rare property offers a glimpse into the origins of Palm Springs architectural history. Alger Shelden, the son of a high-ranking executive with the Ford Motor Company and one of Detroit's "richest of the rich," commissioned the house after spending several seasons at Smoke Tree Ranch. Clark and Frey, in collaboration with landscape architect Fred Barlow, Jr., created a thoroughly modern house cloaked in ranch house vernacular detail. Constructed of concrete brick resembling adobe, this low-slung single family home was featured at the time in the influential magazine California Arts & Architecture and the Los Angeles Times Home Magazine. Now on the market for the first time in over 40 years this hidden gem represents a golden opportunity to acquire a truly unique piece of Palm Springs history located in the heart of one of our most desirable neighborhoods.
