Here’s another mid-century stunner!
This 1958 “Modernist Ranch” is located in Rancho Mirage, California.
The exterior is fabulous, but you have to see the interior to truly appreciate this time-capsule.
It’s an absolute time warp!
From the Terrazzo flooring to the impeccable mid-century furnishings, this place is like stepping back into the 1950’s.
This classic beauty is currently listed for sale for $1,299,000.
The listing agent calls this home a “quintessential Cody” – referring to the architect who built it, William F. Cody.
His hallmarks of design (as with many of the mid-century masters) was simplicity of form, natural light, and large windows on both sides of his structures, allowing a free flow between exterior and interior spaces.
This lucky home has been exquisitely preserved and restored and was featured in the 2019 Signature Palm Springs Modernism Home Tour.
It was also the recipient of the ‘Residential Restoration‘ award in 2014 from the prestigious preservation organization, the Palm Springs Modern Committee.
The original sunken bar once described by the original owner, Sharon Simons, as ‘the cat’s pajamas‘, is still in place.
All of the furnishings/décor are available for negotiation to purchase separately for a turnkey package.
And hey, if you are shopping in this price range, why not?
Check out the retro kitchen:
So gorgeous – from top to bottom!
A groovy little breakfast nook:
Look at the vintage box TV!
Almost every room in the house has an antique TV…
The bedrooms feature thick, colorful shag carpet.
The mid-century vibe continues in all the bathrooms…
As does the shag carpet!
It’s true to the era, but honestly, what were they thinking back then? Carpet in the bathrooms? *shudder*
A sunken tub makes up for it though!
This house is just so much fun!
It wouldn’t be a true California MCM without an in-ground pool in the backyard!
According to the listing, the house is located in Thunderbird North, one of the area’s earliest resort communities which was created in 1956.
The neighborhood features 7 acres of lush garden-like greenbelts with 10 custom homes, each designed by renowned architects of the era.
Wouldn’t it be great if someone bought this place and rented it out as a vacation rental?
Not only could you stay in a sun-soaked setting, you could time travel back to the 1950’s for a couple of days!
WAY better than a hotel!
