This stunning mid-century home has been completely remodeled. Everything is shiny and new. The owners spared no expense in transforming this classic Alexander to be the quintessential Palm Springs vacation paradise. Completely walled for privacy, spectacular mountain views, professionally designed country club pool yard with lush desert landscape, and an open concept floor plan that has been beautifully decorated with period-inspired art and furnishings. Alexander's Blue Hawaiian looks as though it was ripped from the pages of Architectural Digest or Elle Decor. It is as comfortable as it is gorgeous.
A PART OF PALM SPRINGS HISTORY
This property is a Tahquitz Creek Golf Club Estates original, complete with its Hawaiian roof and mid-century modern style. It sits proudly on a corner lot with incredible views of both the San Jacinto and San Juan Mountains. It was built in 1964 as the private residence for the Construction Manager of The Alexander Building Company, so it had many custom upgrades. The floor plan was expanded to over 2,000 sq ft including a large family room and a poolside cabana.
The 2015 remodel honored the architectural integrity of the property - preserving the nostalgic mid-mod vibe of yesteryear while updating it to be very "Next-Century." Four flat screen TVs with premium channels, hi speed wireless internet, all new kitchen and baths, gleaming white tile floors, high performance climate control and all the modern conveniences you would associate with luxury and comfort.
THE LIVING AREAS
The open concept floor plan is ideal for spending time with your entire group. The fully-stocked chef's kitchen has gleaming quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances including a six-burner gas stove and a side-by-side refrigerator. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the adjacent lounge which is open to the interior dining space. There is an additional oversized media lounge with a giant 70" smart TV, a gas fireplace, and a king-sized convertible sofa for the occasional overflow guests. All of the living spaces have direct pool access - blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living in true Palm Springs-style.
THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
The bedrooms all have flat screen TVs, ample closet space, blackout window coverings, and custom-made, hotel-quality, gel-topped mattresses. The Master has a king-sized bed, an ensuite bath with a rainfall shower, and direct access to its own private patio. The two guest rooms share a bath and have king-sized beds (one can be converted to two twins upon request).
THE OUTDOOR AREAS
As gorgeous as the interiors of this home are - it is the outdoor areas that are its crowning glory. Alexander's Blue Hawaiian feels like a very private mini-resort where you can improve your putt, play ping pong, swim, take a spa, gather round the firepit - or do nothing at all.
At the front of the property you'll find a series of beautifully landscaped courtyards that are perfect for stealing some alone time for rest or meditation. The backyard has been walled and gated for complete privacy. Alexander's Blue Hawaiian is an oasis under the swaying Palm Trees that offers a fabulous saltwater pool with iridescent mosaic glass tile, an integrated waterfall spa, a 3-hole putting green, a covered outdoor living room, and al fresco dining for six to eight guests. The gas barbecue has been plumbed so you'll never have to worry about replacing tanks. You'll find poolside umbrellas, chaise lounges, and towels. No need to traipse inside in a wet bathing suit as there is a poolside bath with shower and changing room.
As the sun sets, the backyard landscape comes alive with designer lighting and a beautiful inground gas fire pit. This is the perfect setting for long evenings under the desert skies. Night swimming is strongly encouraged.
