From the late master of mid-century architecture, William Krisel, comes this celebrated and spectacular custom estate. Recently published in William Krisel’s Palm Springs: The Language of Modernism, this singular masterpiece is highlighted with the architect’s two other high-profile custom-designed properties: the Alexander Residence and the Kemp Residence. The Tipper-Grundt residence - also referred to locally as “The Pod House” – is Krisel’s only work comprised of five interconnecting octagonal pods.
Beyond the serene entry pond and waterfall, this architectural tour de force offers soaring ceilings, dramatic fireplaces, original poured white terrazzo and brass inlaid floors and hand-forged rock walls. Mid-century style is seamlessly fused with a state-of-the-art, fully-equipped gourmet kitchen and luxuriously-finished baths. Equally impressive but more intimate areas include a cozy den with fireplace, double-ensuite/triple closet master bedroom, additional ensuite bedroom, separate wing offering third bedroom and fourth bedroom/office with shared bath, and casita with private entrance and bath.
Walls of uninterrupted glass offer unsurpassed 270 degree views of the desirable Indian Canyons Golf Course (triple fairway), the 100-foot tall Disney Fountain and the spectacular San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountain ranges. The 27,443 square foot lot includes broad lawns and multiple backyard entertaining areas with Pebble Tec pool with waterfall and spa, two fire pits, built-in grill, original tiki torches and a gated motor court for 8+ cars.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to own one of Palm Springs’ most coveted mid-century estates.
