The Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway in Palm Springs
|You can't get better than this. Elvis Presley celebrated his honeymoon here in 1967 giving it one of it's name's, "Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway".
The Alexander Residence 1960 - William Krisel architect. This was the custom family home built for Robert and Helene Alexander of the famed Alexander construction company. Look magazine visited in 1962 for a peek into the futuristic design declaring it the House Of Tomorrow, capturing a posh couple and their young daughter living their best lives in the spectacularly modern home.
The spaceship-like dynamic winged roof line shelters four circular pods with the center of the house fanning out from the dramatic stepped waterfall. The entry path through carved-wood double height entry doors ushers you to a sunken party pad of angular stacked stoned walls, glass, and a low-slung curved upholstered banquet embracing a futuristic steel beaker shaped fireplace hood and floating hearth.
A raised dining platform unfolds seamlessly through a wall of glass to the expansive exterior terracing, pool, and breathtaking mountain views. The adjacent kitchen continues the circular theme with a round center island featuring a twin of the living room fireplace hood, and an open concept design to a cozy family room with an expansive rock wall and fireplace just steps away from abundant poolside lounging and covered dining area under the deep cantilevered roof.
Not to be outdone, a lavish primary suite is reached via a grand staircase to a private glassed perch featuring panoramic views. A generous dressing room/bathroom is concealed by original built-in wardrobe closets centered around a circular tub, and an intimate balcony is accessible allowing for a discrete observation deck.
A bedroom wing completes the interior pod sequence and is reached via a long hall to laundry and a sheltered carport. All bedrooms, three lower and one upper, are en-suite, two sharing an exterior terrace.
A thoughtful renovation with restored original architectural details of stone and poured terrazzo floors, bringing the house back to it's original intent and receiving a Class-One historic designation. This iconic house is in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood and is the largest Alexander-built home with the largest pool and best lot.
