Description

Sunmor Estates is one of the earliest examples of the legendary collaboration between Palm Springs architect William Krisel and the Alexander Construction Company. Together, they arguably defined the iconic Palm Springs midcentury lifestyle. Low slung modern ranches, with iconic MCM bones, large swimming pools, lush yards featuring palm and citrus trees, and sweeping mountain views. 233 Helena Circle (named for Helene Alexander herself) has all this AND MORE: first, the house has been expanded to...Sunmor Estates is one of the earliest examples of the legendary collaboration between Palm Springs architect William Krisel and the Alexander Construction Company. Together, they arguably defined the iconic Palm Springs midcentury lifestyle. Low slung modern ranches, with iconic MCM bones, large swimming pools, lush yards featuring palm and citrus trees, and sweeping mountain views. 233 Helena Circle (named for Helene Alexander herself) has all this AND MORE: first, the house has been expanded to include a delightful casita with lovely views, its own modern kitchenette, its own laundry, and its own front and back entrances. This is a wonderful suite for family, guests, or even income producing tenants. There is a fully enclosed, insulated, airconditioned and oversized garage perfect for your vintage classic or an electric vehicle (220 volt charge plug installed). Other features unique to this Alexander are the enlarged kitchen and the addition of a large walk-in closet in the primary. Modern upgrades include newer ACs (5.0 ton Lennox for the main house, mini-split for the casita), tankless water heater, fully owned solar and motorized primary bedroom blackout shades. The sleek modern kitchen is fully updated with Bosch appliances. The fan-shaped 1/3 acre lot is HUGE, larger than most in the neighborhood, with excellent orientation and views. The backyard features a covered patio area, a massive pool with fountains, professionally designed outdoor lighting and landscaping including 17 citrus trees for your morning juice or cocktails! The saltwater pool is easy to maintain, the commercial grade insulated elastin roof adds extra heat protection and the owned rooftop solar system provides abundant power. It's no surprise that this home was featured on the 2022 Palm Springs Modernism tour. Furnishings available for separate sale.
