Stepping onto the property at 423 West Merito Place in Palm Springs will likely bring you back to a time when life seemed a bit less complicated. That’s because this fantastic three-bedroom, four-bath, 3,281 square foot ranch, – situated in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood – was built in 1957, and it still holds many of its original features today.
While there have been several key updates made to this mid-century modern, the home offers a large open great room area that’s complete with a wall of large windows and sliding glass doors. On each side of the large living room area, there are two separate wings, each offering breathtaking views of the space outdoors.
The exterior features lush green landscaping, beautiful gardens, and an in-ground back yard pool with an adjacent patio and plenty of seating for guest. You’ll also find several “floating” pottery planters, along with privacy screening that help to provide quiet and shade. In addition, there is a newer guest house included in the sale.
The home, designed by icon James Reid, is like taking a trip back in a Palm Springs time capsule. It last sold for $346,000 in 1999, and the current listing marks only the second time in its history that it’s been offered for sale.
This one-of-a-kind property is currently listed at just under $2.4 million, and private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
