On the market for the first time since 1971, this Indian Wells home looks as though it’s been all but frozen in time since right around then—a little wear and tear aside.
Constructed in 1962, the three-bedroom, three-bath residence was designed by prominent Palm Desert modernist William Cody. As the listing notes, the home is more or less Cody’s take on the modern ranch-style homes of his mentor Cliff May. In 1968, it made an appearance in Architectural Digest as the personal residence of designer Walter Dunivant.
Poshly furnished in those photos, the home is looking rather empty lately. But with elegant red tile flooring in the living room, a huge wood-burning fireplace, beamed and pitched ceilings, and walls of glass throughout, there’s plenty to like here. (There are also carpeted bathrooms. We’ll let you decide how you feel about.)
Behind the house is a large pool and deck, along with a good-sized patch of lawn. The 2,400-square-foot home is situated on a one-third-acre lot and offers outdoor access from nearly every room in the house. This includes the vintage seafoam kitchen, complete with electric stove and double ovens.
Asking price is $559,000.
