Known as the Steel & Glass house, this Donald Wexler designed property is the last home the celebrated architect directly had a hand in building. Wexler drew the plans which were finalized less than 2 months before his passing in 2015. The home was showcased the following year for Modernism Week 2016. He believed that steel was ideal for desert building as it was economical & could withstand the climate of extreme sun, heat and wind. He once famously said, "We didn't even think of it as 'Modern' in terms of architecture for the desert. We did it to live with the environment, a matter of balancing orientation and views".This incredible home is built on a parcel of land formerly of the Frank Sinatra Estate (Twin Palms) before it was subdivided. A true work of art. This 3 bedroom 3 bath home wraps around a serene reflecting pool with views of the San Jacinto mountains. A Palm Springs vision in the historic setting known as the Movie Colony neighborhood.
