Iconic Mid-Century Modern Design by Herbert Burns (Master of Light)! In collaboration with Developer/Owner Ronald Miller for his personal dream residence in Downtown Palm Springs, this special home, #8, was the apex of “The 500” condominium complex that is considered Burn’s finest work.
With easy circulation between an expansive poolside Terrazzo patio that leads to the double door entry adjacent to floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors, making a vast open indoor/outdoor area, this home is perfect for entertaining. Walls of glass and ten Sky Domes provide light in all of the right places and highlight the decadent touches, from walls of book-matched marble on the patio and entryway, to the wall-to-wall marble surrounded fireplace.
The open floor plan offers multiple options for dining and relaxing. The wet bar is in the perfect location to welcome guests with a hip cocktail creation. The large kitchen comes with plenty of cabinets and an eat-in area for informal dining. The primary suite includes a separate room that could be an office, studio, or gym. The oversize garage was made to comfortably accommodate the generous lines of a 1970’s Caddy and includes a workbench and storage area.
Recently featured in the Palm Springs Modernism Week Tour, it is now offered well below replacement costs. There is much more to see and appreciate in how this “Contemporary Modern” masterpiece has stood the test of time. As a place to live, it is sublime!
