    In 1960 the Alexander Bros developed what ended up being by far their largest development in Palm Springs. They commissioned the prominent designer firm Palmer and Krisel and created Desert Park Estates. The draw was of course the proximity to a beautiful park, the racquet club and the outstanding mountain views. To give the community an aesthetic diversity Palmer and Krisel had several efficient floorplans and several different roof lines. This outstanding Alexander was given the Side Gable roofline and the prime location of being right next to the park. The home underwent a few additions & renovations ie; an enclosed sun room, a master wing which was designed by Albert Frey . Spacious 4bd/3bths in 2270 sq ft, but its the backyard that wins my heart. The large sparkling pool faces W and is located in a charming and private Backyard complete with grass cabana. Triple pane Anderson windows, 22 solar panels, and newer air conditioning units make it energy efficient. Owner wants it sold.
