An iconic piece of architectural history, designed by Howard Lapham. Believed to be one of the largest mid-century homes in Palm Springs. Offering 9BR, 12BA, indoor and outdoor pools, a 60 ft long LR with walls of Fleetwood sliders opening to a covered patio cooled by micro-mist, and a commercially-equipped kitchen. Architectural details include cantilevered roofs, poured terrazzo floors, walled and gated entry, and abundant access to the outdoors in true Lapham style. The owner, a fashion designer known for her use of color, has created one of the boldest, most transcendent interiors in the desert. When day turns to night and the hues of twilight take over, the home takes on a whole new identity as the desert heat and breezes sway the palms and orchid trees while interior spaces come alive for an evening dinner party, conversations and music by the fireplace, or a raucous night of cards in the parlor. The lush and luxe grounds lend an exotic backdrop to this important home.
