HIGH STYLE CONCEPT HOUSE CREATED BY NATIONAL BRAND
The West Elm House 2017: The Alexander was an idea house created to inspire and guide architecture and design enthusiasts when it comes to the art of modernizing a midcentury home for the way we live today. It was on tour during Palm Springs Modernism Week 2017 and has been featured in California Homes Magazine. Treat yourself to a vacation in this Living Show Room - the perfect "Midcentury to Next-Century Transformation" of an iconic 1950s home originally built by the Alexander Construction Company and then remodeled by Solterra Builders. The Design Team from West Elm used their product line of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced sofas, tables, beds, lighting and accessories to furnish this classic home (circa 1958).
THE INTERIOR LIVING SPACES
Absolutely stunning remodel. This property has been lovingly restored - respecting its architectural pedigree while updating it for the way we live today. The renovation preserved the original open concept floor plan, clerestory windows, polished concrete floors and iconic post and beam ceilings - while giving it a completely "next century" makeover with all new kitchen and baths, hi speed internet access, updated climate control system, 4 Smart Televisions and ipod charging stations. The entire front and back of the house feature movable walls of glass - that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living in true Palm Springs-style.
THE SLEEPING QUARTERS
All of the bedrooms feature ample storage, flat screen televisions and comfortable king-sized mattresses by Casper, the latest in memory foam sleep systems. The master bedroom offers a walk in closet, sitting area, direct pool access and an en suite bath with dual sinks and a deluxe shower that connects to the outdoors. The two king guest rooms feature their own court yards - each with a private firepit lounge area, an outdoor shower, and gorgeous mountain views.
THE OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES
Completely walled for privacy, the entire property feels like an upscale resort with its large concept pool area, outdoor living pavilion, game areas, 5 fire features, 3 outdoor showers, al fresco dining, gas barbecue and poolside chaise lounges. Sophisticated modern style meets 1950s sensibility to create this fabulous outdoor space that certainly has the Wow Factor.
This spectacular home sits on a quiet residential street in the Little Beverly Hills neighborhood of Palm Springs - an intimate enclave of 84 single family homes - all built by the Alexander Construction Company (with a few Meiselmans on the perimeter) between 1957 and 1959. This very retro, picturesque, walkable community is bordered on two sides by a golf course. The emphasis here is on easy living in the sunshine.The hustle and bustle of Palm Springs seems as though it is miles away from this sleepy little part of town - but grocery stores, casual eating places, sandwich shops, burger joints and Downtown Palm Springs are all just blocks away. You can even walk to the Saturday morning Farmers Market or take in an independent film at the local movie house that hosts many of our Film Festivals.
"Loved the place we booked through ACME! Mike our contact was super helpful and always available if we needed anything. Very smooth process. 6 of us stayed and had a very relaxing weekend at their West Elm property in Palm Springs. Outdoor showers in multiple locations, coffee and water in each room (a dream), plus lots of games to keep you entertained. A very well set up holiday rental."
We Loved Our Stay With Acme
"We had a wonderful time at the house we rented from ACME in Palm Springs. The place was exactly as described and wonderfully equipped for a very relaxing and comfortable stay. The house was very clean and well kept. Communication with ACME was very straight forward and easy. I'd definitely come back to them in the future to rent a property in the area."
Loved our stay!
"I had heard of the West Elm house through Modernism Week, and really wanted to stay here. The best part was the outdoor living spaces - we used every bit of it (backyard, front yard, guest room patios, outdoor shower/bath). It immediately felt like home, and we felt like we were well taken care of. Loved it and want to come back to the same house very soon!"
Perfect Anniversary Stay!
"Superb staff, clear communication and responsibilities, great manual in the home, and amazing maintenance people. This home had the style and amenities that was perfect for our 20th anniversary. Best part was the decor. The home is a time machine, yet it has great modern amenities from the recent renovation. "
"Beautiful home! Very accommodating. Excellent service. Nice people. This particular house met all of our desires. Best part was the outdoor space and the pool! The place looked amazing in the photos and was even better in person. "
"We loved this branded house. It was really like living in the coolest furniture showroom ever. We left rested and inspired. And yes - we did go home and immediately give both our guest rooms complete West Elm Makeovers! Now if only we could make our back yard look like the Palm Springs West Elm House! "
Look forward to returning!
"Very good overall stay! The style and decor were excellent, well appointed, and why I picked this property. The best part was the pool and location!"
Excellent All Around!
"ACME House Co. is by far the best property manager in Palm Springs. Your level of service, along with your selection of homes, is outstanding. The best part was the outstanding pool, where we spent most of our waking hours. Had it not been 110 in the shade we might have made better use of the fun outdoor games, and sports offered on the property. Being 3 minutes from the airport was nice. One small. but meaningful improvement could be made by beefing up the internet link to the livingroom TV. An excellent overall experience!"
Incredible Property. Great Vacation.
"We heard from so many others how great this place is. Weren't sure we should believe all the hype. So we had to try it ourselves. And we found out --- The West Elm House is amazing. The entire yard was like a playground for big kids! The pool was just amazing with disco lights, jets and lots of bubbles! The mountain views were stunning. So many different places on property to enjoy cocktails. And all of the furniture - especially the beds - we soooooo comfortable. Wow. Wow. Wow. Worth every penny."
What an experience!
"We really like West Elm and have a lot of pieces in our own home. To stay in this all West Elm House - was such an amazing experience. Comfortable, attractive and super high style. But the best part was the pool. The entire stay was fantastic."
Great Concept House
"We had a great time staying in this very cool idea house by West Elm. We are big fans of everything Willams Sonoma and its sister brands do ---- so we were over the top impressed by everything about this property. The team at Acme House Company were amazing hosts. We highly recommend staying at The West Elm House when visiting Palm Springs. And yes the pool really does have disco lights and we loved it!"
Great home-Excellent Location-Fabulous Finishes!
"Loved everything about this home. The fire features through out the property add a fun flair. Huge pool and amazing backyard."
The Dream House for Modernists!
"We were absolutely blown away by how gorgeous and comfortable this house was! Walls of glass that gave us stunning views from inside and outside the house. We have always been fans of midcentury architecture and the 1950s homes built by the Alexander Construction Company - but this remodel took it to the next level. Really shows how you can respect the original architecture while creating a very "NOW" space. The decor by West Elm was beautiful, super comfortable and the perfect compliment to the mid mod style of this house."
The Perfect Place for West Elm Fans
"We were among the first lucky guests to stay at this concept home before it debuts on the Palm Springs Modernism Week Tour. It was like a dream and worth every penny. The entire property has been furnished by West Elm in their signature Boho Chic style. It was like living in one of their hip showrooms. So yes the inside was amazing. But the back yard was beyond description. Disco lights in the pool. Huge spa and a tanning deck with nifty air jets that doubled as a safe play space for the little ones. We hung out by one of the 4 different fire features each evening. We have already booked our return trip and can't wait to go back this summer. Thank you Acme House Company and West Elm for creating the perfect Palm Springs Getaway!"
"The space and home are terrific! The architecture of the home, paired with the furnishings from West Elm, make for a perfect marriage of Mid Century Modern. Quiet street, but conveniently located to downtown. Highly recommended for a getaway to Palm Springs"
This property is amazing!!!!
"There is so much to love. The pool, master shower, and private courtyards off of every bedroom makes me wish that this was my house. The open floor plan truly brings the outdoors inside. We love it!"
