More About Palm Springs Real Estate in Vista Las Palmas
The neighborhood of Vista Las Palmas began construction in 1958 and achieved immediate cachet due to its location just west of one of Palm Springs’ most classic neighborhoods, known today as Old Las Palmas. In Vista Las Palmas, you will find a mix of architecture and a unique collection of around 375 homes. The neighborhood is filled with mid-century modern homes such as the designs of architects William Krisel and Charles Dubois, which were built by the Alexander Construction Co.
Homes designed by Krisel were rectangular and open and included a breezeway separating the carport from the living area. Krisel also popularized the butterfly roof (two panels that meet in the middle of the roofline and slope upward and outward, like open butterfly wings) originally designed by Swiss-French architect and Modernist pioneer Le Corbusier. The butterfly roof became Krisel’s Southern California design trademark. Designs by Charles Dubois included a double, single-story home known as Swiss Miss, fronted by large, two-story A-frame-eaves, shingled roofs, and 18-foot walls of glass offering dramatic views.
Since the late 1990s, many of the homes in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood have been remodeled, some back to their original glory in great detail or modernized with upgrades in keeping with the original design. Real estate agent and remodeler – Mark Anton has restored a total of 11 houses in the neighborhood since 1997. “Whatever I’ve done,” he says, “has been in character with the house.” People knew Vista Las Palmas had returned at the start of 2003 when Anton sold the first home in the neighborhood for $1 million, which had become a symbol of Mid-century modern architecture. Most Palm Springs homes for sale in Vista Las Palmas are priced at one million to 3 million-plus.
