Restored just in time for Modernism Week 2020

Palm Springs, California, is packed full of gorgeous midcentury
architecture, and the latest beauty to cross our desk is
this five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath
in the Little Tuscany
neighborhood. First constructed in 1948 by architectural designer
Herbert Burns, the house was partially demolished and sat neglected
for years before being restored for Modernism Week 2020.

led the renovation, working to bring back the
home’s intrinstic glamour. Burns was inspired by the work of
Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier, and the design uses horizontal
lines with flat roofs, cantilevered overhangs, vertical pylons,
screens, grids, and planters.

Like other Late Moderne homes, this property seamlessly blends
the indoor-outdoor lifestyle, using Santa Fe block on both the
inside and outside of the house. Wide roof overhangs provide shade
protection from the desert sun, while natural materials like wood
and Arizona sandstone help the house fit into the environment.

The 4,700-square-foot home’s restoration included pouring new
terrazzo floors, adding solar, and installing Fleetwood sliding
doors and windows. A custom kitchen features teak cabinetry, a
large island, and professional appliances, while outside the home
is picture-perfect with a pool, spa, fire pit, and outdoor kitchen.

restored. A dining room has a modern gold chandelier, seating for six, and a buffet table on the side.
