Gorgeous in its simplicity, as architect Donald Wexler intended, our Fishbowl at Sunmor Estates is a fabulous Palm Springs vacation home rental with clean lines, an open concept floor plan and spectacular walls of glass that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living.
As part of the remodel, the owners preserved the swank and sophisticated vibe of yesteryear while adding modern conveniences like hi speed internet wifi service and three flat screen televisions. The kitchen and baths have been updated in a style that compliments the home's iconic architectural pedigree. Authentic 1950s furnishings, terrazzo tile floors, locally-inspired artwork, period textiles and a true appreciation of all things mid-century - come together to create this wonderful desert escape.
THE LIVING SPACES
This home has been carefully planned for entertaining, relaxing and spending quality time with your travel companions. The open floor plan provides a comfortable space for your entire group to spread out in style. You'll find ample seating, a 52" flat screen smart television, a fireplace and walls of glass that reveal the spectacular outdoor spaces that are, in themselves, a slice of heaven.
THE OUTDOOR SPACES
This mid-century pool home is located on a quiet residential street in Sunmor Estates, a walking neighborhood of historic homes built in the late 50s and early 1960s. A glazed courtyard entry provides privacy from the street, expanding the interior space to create unexpected drama as one enters this classic mid-century home. There are walls of glass everywhere - revealing fabulous outdoor spaces. The huge private yard - with its sprawling green lawn, fabulous in-ground pool, and covered dining pavilion with plumbed gas barbecue - is a slice of heaven. You will spend leisurely afternoons poolside and long evenings having cocktails al fresco around the fire feature. But the true magic of this property is the spectacular views of the San Jacinto Mountains that can be seen from most of the yard.
The bedrooms of this wonderful vacation home are off on their own - in a separate wing from the living areas. Great for groups with both early risers and those who want to sleep in. All the sleeping quarters feature hospitality quality mattresses and unique period furnishings. The master bedroom offers a king-sized bed, an ensuite bath with shower and Jacuzzi tub (the heating element and jets are pretty sweet), a 42" flat screen TV and direct pool access. The Queen Guest Room has a flat screen television and shares a bath with the King Guest Room.
