Designed by master architect Albert Frey and designated Historic Site #100 by the City of Palm Springs, this International Style early modern gem is also listed as one of the City's 100 most important buildings. A thoughtful restoration brings its period of significance to life in every room, including Bakelite doorknobs, period bath and lighting fixtures, beautiful polished concrete, tile and cork floors, period lighting and an original color palette. Upgrades include renovated baths to keen period detail, newer pool & spa with wireless controls, 200amp service, laminated-glass doors and windows, new heat/AC in 2018 and a wonderful outdoor shower. Profiled in Atomic Ranch and Architect & Engineer, photographed by Julius Shulman and featured during Modernism Week, the Bel Vista residence is an important example of Palm Springs early modern architecture. Frey's plan features an abundance of windows and exterior doors in common and private spaces, creating different entrances and a heightened sense of indoor/outdoor living, making the home a light and bright showplace. The 10,000sf lot on fee land you own - has lots of potential, expansive open spaces, a citrus grove and nice mountain views, complemented by the central location in famed Movie Colony East. As a Class 1 historic site, the property is eligible for Mills Act and its significant property tax savings. An important part of the architectural fabric of Palm Springs, authenticity and integrity are apparent throughout.
