The Morse House is a historic 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom estate in Palm Springs that boasts a mid-century modern interior and exterior—perfect for those who appreciate rich architecture and luxury living. Designed by renowned architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel, this impeccable home has a rich heritage, as it was later renovated by Hollywood architect Harold “Hal” Levitt. Located in the highly sought-after Vista Las Palmas neighborhood, it was the first to be designated a Class 1 Historic Site within the community—and even won the Palm Springs Preservation Award in 2018. Freshly updated and fully restored, the past meets the present in The Morse House. A grand entryway opens to reveal an art-filled hallway that beckons guests to stop and admire before continuing into the bright and airy great room. Reminiscent of glamorous mid-century entertaining, the gorgeous sunken living room provides sensational views of the San Jacinto Mountains from a vibrant blue sectional and nearby bar. The pièce de resistance is undoubtedly the retractable glass doors that seemingly vanish into the walls, giving friends and family direct access from the living area to the outdoor pool! This ultra-luxe feature provides vacationers the maximum comfort and extravagance—especially with a refreshing swim-up bar just steps away. Stunning terrazzo floors lead guests up to a well-lit dining area that seats 6 before transitioning into the sleek kitchen. With polished cabinetry and a blue backsplash, this space will inspire any chef with its premium appliances and butler’s pantry. Enjoy the recently added media room with a Smart TV, providing the ease of today’s streaming services with a nod to Old Hollywood viewing rooms. Three remarkable bedrooms serve as a testament to this home’s undeniable comfort and elegance—each one boasting something different, including courtyard access, a deep whirlpool tub, and a full skylight over the walk-in shower. Discover lush, top-tier turf bordering the expansive backyard, complemented by an electric-shade covered patio, cozy firepit area, and relaxing sitting spa. The unique standing art pieces placed around the yard ensure there’s always something new to explore and view. On-site parking in the garage and driveway makes it easy to explore the area, including local boutiques, high-end restaurants, popular nightclubs, and maybe even a trip to Joshua Tree National Park—less than 1 hour away. Take advantage of this one-of-a-kind getaway by booking today! City of Palm Springs # 5237

    The Morse House was the perfect retreat for our week in Palm Springs! Every detail has been considered and curated from the interior design, books and Brandini Toffee that awaited our arrival. All that said this is a home that makes you relax the second you walk thru the door, it has so many options for gatherings and escape. And of course the drama of its mid century, swim up bar made us feel like we were transproted to a more optimistic time. Morse house is a fantasty and a time machine.

    A Palm Springs gem. Absolutely stunning home and what a treat to spend time here. A little slice of heaven and Palm Springs history. The house was well equipped for our family of four, including our 3 year old and 5 month old. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable (the beds!!), and the pool was incredible!!! Not to mention the swim up bar and full sliding doors that opened the living room to the pool. So cool. The location was excellent. Close to local restaurants and coffee shops. Beautiful neighborhood for walks to admire all the other midcentury homes! The hosts were communicative and friendly. They were very helpful in organizing our baby rental delivery and pick up, which made our lives so much easier! Would absolutely stay again.
