Neighborhood: 332 - Central Palm Springs, Little Tuscany
MODERNIST PURITY! Little Tuscany Estates is a hidden gem nestled in the foothills of Mt. San Jacinto in Central Palm Springs. This small neighborhood, made up of one-lane roads and multiple cul-de-sacs that seemingly climb to the sky contains many noted and marked Historic Mid-Century houses. These revered multi-million dollar Mid-Century homes include the Edris House by E. Stewart Williams, the Loewy House by Albert Frey, the Dr. Alexander House by Walter White, homes by Michael Allan Black, and many more. For almost a quarter century, Whispering Palms, the marvelous mid-century home offered here, has been the private oasis of one owner and has seldom been available to view. Built in 1957 by M.H. Libott, the home remains largely original and is a purist's haven. Tucked behind an architectural motorized gate at the end of a 3-home private cul-de-sac, this almost half-acre parcel is a delight at every turn. The home, with its red door and classic 50's roof overhangs, is revealed from the graveled circular driveway. Once inside you will discover the unmistakable unique beauty of this one-off Modern/Polynesian hybrid design, with its step-down living area and massive, architectural stone fireplace and hearth. The adjacent open dining area, sitting area and step-down bar add intimate spaces for smaller gatherings. A large den opens to the updated eat-in kitchen as well as the lush gardens and meandering water features and water falls. The 3rd bedroom and en-suite original bath is sited off of this den. On the opposite side of the house are the primary suite with the most amazing original bath imaginable, a 2nd bedroom with original hall bath, a laundry room and garage access. Walls of glass from most of the house reveal the terraced rear yard complete with forever valley views, covered patio, Polynesian-style pool, bridges, fountains and lily pad-covered water features. The 2-car garage has a large attached storage room and there is a single car carport adjacent to the garage. This is truly Shangri La...don't miss your opportunity to acquire this piece of paradise.
