Nestled against the San Jacinto Mountains, Vista Las Palmas is one of the desert’s iconic Midcentury neighborhoods. Using the designs of the Palmer and Krisel firm, as well as architect Charles Dubois, the Alexander Construction Company developed Vista Las Palmas starting back in the late 1950s. Throughout the years, homeowners have engaged architects such as Bret Thoeny and local designers including Arthur Elrod to tastefully remodel and rebuild their houses.
These talented modernist architects have created forward-looking homes that include soaring rooflines and elegant minimalist facades with lots of curb appeal. The interiors include post and beam construction, walls of glass and spacious floor plans that flow smoothly from inside to outside. The mix of designs creates one of the most varied, yet cohesive neighborhoods in Palm Springs, and it is always a stop on any architectural tour of the area.
Vista Las Palmas today has become a symbol of Midcentury Modern design for the distinctive homeowner who wants the relaxed lifestyle of the desert. Owners include weekenders from nearby Los Angeles, part-time residents from a colder home base to full-time residents who desire year-round peaceful desert living. Residents share an interest in preserving the history and architecture that so perfectly complements the desert landscape.
It’s no wonder the neighborhood’s influential architecture, rich cultural history, and enduring appeal have made it a special place to live.
