The sleek midcentury modern exterior w/original terrazzo walkways just hints at the surprises inside-unlike any other in Palm Springs. Offering an unparalleled indoor/outdoor experience including a sunken living room that opens to a fully equipped swim-up bar w/glass pocket doors the disappear into the home's stone walls. A stunning entry of poured terrazzo leads into an impressive gallery, past a leather tufted powder room.
