Explore Twin Palms Real Estate
Twin Palms real estate resides on streets that draw their names from their surroundings. Apache Road and Navajo Drive take their names from the Native American tribes that first populated the area while Joshua Tree Place and Yuca Place derive their names from local flora. The neighborhood itself takes its name from the two palm trees that were planted in the yard of each home when the development was first built.
This historic Palm Springs neighborhood is known for being the first mid-century modern tract development in the desert. At the time when it was built, it was unlike anything else in Palm Springs. Butterfly roofs, an innovative design, and an unparalleled sense of style gave these homes a luxury spin, yet because they were built in a tract development, prices were affordable to the average buyer. The success of this development went on to inspire similar ones across the city until the Modernist building style overtook the area.
The historic appeal of these homes means that many of the original 1960s houses have been carefully preserved, and for the most part, are as handsome today as they were more than 50 years ago. These properties are highly sought after and often sell for as low as $500,000 to beyond $800,000.
The western segment of Twin Palms is dedicated to a cozy community of manufactured homes. This region can be a fantastic space for first-time buyers who are looking for a more affordable investment opportunity close to the heart of Palm Springs.
The newest constructions in this neighborhood belong to a single street that was redeveloped and is now known as 18 @ Twin Palms. Completed in 2016, this collection of 18 adjacent homes feature the finest in Modern design inspired by the historic homes that surround it. Enjoy open spaces, bright interiors, clean white surfaces, a back yard pool, and every contemporary comfort.
