DETAILS: The embodiment of Old Hollywood lavishness and mid-century modern luxury, Modern Palms is an unmatched Palm Springs Retreat. Nestled in the exclusive neighborhood dubbed The Movie Colony near the thriving downtown, this sprawling 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home was designed in 1950 by Herbert Burns, a founding father of the Desert Modern movement. Guests will relish basking poolside in the secluded backyard and savoring the stunning views of the San Jacinto mountains. An expansive great room with picture windows and a striking floor-to-ceiling fireplace welcomes guests. Crafted by the renowned Arthur Elrod, the original interior was restored in 2018 with new furniture and art, preserving the icon’s penchant for dramatic angles and exuberant colors. Multiple seating areas with plush furniture abound, offering sumptuous spots for intimate conversation, relaxing in front of the 64” TV, or sipping a refreshing cocktail by the fireplace. A vintage bar opens to the backyard, allowing for outdoor drink service—or enjoy a martini on one of 4 high-backed barstools! Guests can enjoy playing Bocci Ball or Shuffleboard. Culinary enthusiasts will delight in preparing home-cooked meals in the vast gourmet kitchen, equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a spacious island that seats 4, and a Breville Nespresso machine. The nearby seating area with glass doors to the backyard makes the space ideally situated for entertaining. Connected is a stylish dining space with a table for 6 and Leroy Neiman artwork. The 2 serenely styled primary bedrooms provide exquisite comfort with king beds and private entrances to the pool. The first includes a gas fireplace, wet bar, and wine cooler. The second features mountain views. Additionally, there are 2 well-appointed guest bedrooms with 1 and 2 queen beds, respectively. Step outside, where the breathtaking San Jacinto mountains paint a majestic backdrop for the enclosed backyard. Lounge chairs and umbrellas line the pool while a ping-pong table tempts guests into a relaxed competition. Under the cabana, sip a cocktail on the blue wraparound sofa or indulge in dining alfresco at the patio table for 4. Modern Palms offers an unrivaled Palm Springs getaway. Exploring the area is easy with parking for 4 cars. Book this exceptional home today! This home welcomes 1 small dog, 40lbs or less, with an additional, non-refundable pet fee of $150, plus tax. Please be advised that dogs are not permitted in the pool. Guests must be a minimum of 25 years of age to book with us in the city of Palm Springs, CA.

    I believe the management of the property was excellent - cleanliness, arrangements for booking, concierge, etc. I was not so impressed with the property itself. Very over-priced.
