The Little Tuscany neighborhood began in 1934 when builder/architect Alvah Hicks built seven Tuscan-style homes amidst Palm Springs’ rocky hillside outcroppings. The area now boasts notable midcentury and modern gems by such noted architects as William Cody, Walter White, E. Stewart Williams, Richard Neutra, Albert Frey, Ray Kappe, Lance O'Donnell and Sean Lockyer.
This year's tour includes an impressive mix of homes ranging from classic midcentury modern to stunning contemporary designs. Among the eight homes on tour are the E. Stewart Williams' Edris House, a Desert Palisades home designed by Woods Dangaran, a steel frame house, a tiki style midcentury, an MCM "rock 'n roll" home with a Gibson guitar shaped infinity pool, a home with a spectacular one-of-a-kind rock faced triangular fireplace, the recently remodeled Magda Gabor residence and the Hundred Mile House by Duane Smith.
Located between Chino Canyon and Old Las Palmas, Little Tuscany is a unique neighborhood in Palm Springs, distinguished by its spectacular elevated vistas from the base of Mount San Jacinto across the valley floor and the area’s landmark wind turbines. Instagram
