About 1210 N Via Donna

Opportunities like this don't come along very often. Originally constructed in 1940 by pre-eminent Swiss architect and long-time Palm Springs resident Albert Frey, this impressive mid-century modern home features many of the architect's emblematic design elements. From every room of this historic home, walls of glass allow the outside to blend harmoniously with the inside of the home, enhancing the enjoyment of desert living and providing a panorama of the surrounding mountains and lush landscaping. Originally called Frey House I, the home, which served as the architect's first home in the desert, was extended and reimagined several times from 1947 through 1953 by Frey himself. Most recently, the home was remodeled over a two-year period between 1996 and 1998 with rumored consultation from the architect. The reimagined 4,643 sqft home is an entertainer's delight and features four bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a media room, a lounge with wet bar, a sunken bath in the primary bathroom, the original iconic square pool, and a large living room, dining room combination with the original sliding glass wall featured in the iconic images of this home by famed photographer Julius Shulman. This home, which has not been on the market for almost twenty-three years, offers a unique opportunity for those looking to acquire a historic residence and embrace the Palm Springs lifestyle. Neighborhood short-term rental density quotas are in effect in the city of Palm Springs. Buyers should verify the availability of city permits and verify all information stated or otherwise prior to purchase.
