Nestled in the heart of the Movie Colony, Modern Palms is an ideal escape for those who want to explore Palm Springs with an inspiring retreat to call home. A sprawling, 4-bedroom mid-century home designed in 1950 by Herbert Burns, a “founding father” of the Desert Modern movement, Modern Palms embodies Old Hollywood charm with a distinctly 21st century take on the mid-century modern aesthetic. A 2018 restoration followed the home’s original Arthur Elrod-designed interior, preserving the icon’s fondness for dramatic angles and exuberant colors while updating the look with new furniture, technology and artwork. As guests enter the home, a spacious great room welcomes them with multiple seating areas, a floor-to-ceiling, fireplace, vintage bar, and original Leroy Newman artwork. Designed with shades of Elrod-inspired colors, a plush, wrap-around sofa frames a modern coffee table and twin club chairs. In another, a full-length sofa with comfy accent pillows that faces a large-screen Smart TV. Steps away, a Z-style loveseat offers a place to get cozy by the fireplace. Also featured, a vintage bar opens onto the backyard through wide glass doors, allowing for easy outdoor drink service -- or you can enjoy your martini inside on one of four high-backed barstools. Down the hall, an expansive gourmet kitchen offers another relaxing area to lounge. Opening onto the backyard through glass pocket doors, the kitchen features a mid-century styled loveseat, flat-screen TV, and four comfy barstools at the expansive island. Stainless steel appliances and a Breville Nespresso machine allow for expertly crafted home-cooked meals and coffee. You’ll also have a wine cooler to more easily pair each meal with the perfect beverages. Primary bedroom one is styled in soft colors with a striking, modern painting by Michael Brennan, has a king-sized bed in a lavender tufted frame, a gas fireplace, two club chairs, a wine cooler, and a spacious en-suite bath with pool access, jetted tub and dual shower with body jets. A glass wall with sliding doors opens this room to the outside, providing a private entrance to the pool and outdoor shower. The second primary bedroom is designed with a meditative, cream-and-silver palette, features a king-sized bed, large TV, two club chairs and an en-suite bath with shower and tub. Double glass doors open this room to the pool and expansive mountain views. The third bedroom, styled in stark white with pops of orange and indigo coupled with Leroy Newman art, has a queen sized bed with TV and is located away from the hustle of the main house. A bathroom lies steps away down the hall with the original restored blue-tiled shower plus a new modern bathtub and a separate water closet. The fourth bedroom has classic, white linens and a single accent piece— a bright orange “no. 5” sign in tribute to the ‘60s love affair with billiards. Two queen beds, a flat-screen TV and en-suite bathroom with the original restored baby pink tiled shower and new large shower and tub combo , while glass doors offer private, poolside access to the backyard. A refreshing pool lies close to the home for easy jump-in access, flanked on the other side by a two-level, stacked-stone fountain. Lounge chairs and umbrellas line the pool with breathtaking views of the San Jacinto mountains, while a cabana offers ample seating between an electric blue wrap-around sofa and patio table. 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. City of Palm Springs ID #237

    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.
