An Alexander home in the Sunmor neighborhood of Palm Springs

The two primary builders of this classic neighborhood were Robert "Bob" Higgins and the Alexander Construction Company. Although Sunmor Estates is generally known as an Alexander built neighborhood, it was actually Bob Higgins who built the first homes in this subdivision. Utilizing the talents of the best local architects, like Richard Harrison and Don Wexler, Higgins constructed only 11 homes in this subdivision, but they are some of the most unique mid-century modern homes in the city. The home at 2821 Liver Avenue in Sunmor Estates was the first home Bob Higgins built and served as his office for future sales. The Sand Realty Office, as it was called, is now a Class 1 history residence and is a one of a kind jewel.

The Alexander built homes in the area exhibit the same features of homes found in other Alexander built neighborhoods, such as open concept living areas, celestory windows and floor to ceiling windows. 

Lots in this subdivision are some of the most interesting in Palm Springs. They range in size from typical 10,019 sq ft parcels to lots that feel like parks at over 15,000 sq ft. Regardless of the lot size, all the lots in this subdivision allow for maximum viewing of the San Jacinto Mountains.
