Description

Beautifully Restored Mid-century Modern Condo With Mountain And Pool Views

Welcome to this classic and lively home away from home. In 2013, the owners visited the Racquet Club Cottages West and fell in love with the property. Once you enter the gated community of 37 condos, it is like stepping into a lovely oasis.

Each of the units are each nestled away along a beautiful stream that runs from the main pool space down toward the old racquet club to the far end. We purchased this free-standing condo and just recently completed a total restoration. This unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The furnishings we selected are all mid-century modern. Both the master and the guest bedroom feature a custom-built walnut platform bed. Each has a large storage space underneath the bed frame. The master features a king-size mattress, and the second bedroom has a queen-size mattress. Both have very comfortable mattresses with high-end linens and pillows.

The kitchen has everything you would need to make a home-cooked meal. A gas grill is located on the dining room patio. The cabinets are all black walnut with solid surface countertops. The bathroom features white Italian Carrera marble, and the shower has a standard shower head and two body sprays.

There are three patios to choose from...One large space off the master bedroom with two chaise lounge chairs. The second large patio is off the main living and kitchen area with seating for four. The last patio is off the dining area and has a small sitting area for two people.

In February 2023, this unit will be featured during Modernism Week and the tour of the historical racquet club garden villas. In 2013, the Racquet Club Cottages West received the 3rd ever city of palm springs historic district designation.

This community will forever be preserved for generations to come and enjoy this lovely oasis that seems to take you back in time. The history: RCCW was constructed in 1959 adjacent to the famous palm springs racquet club as an overflow for Hollywood celebrities and visitors alike who wished to have a more extended stay near the famed tennis club. RCCW has a triple pedigree:
Architect: William Cody
Contractor: Paul Trousdale
Landscape Architect: Phil Shipley

There are 37 units nestled in lush, verdant landscaping, with a beautiful stream running throughout the property. The condominiums were designed using post and beam architecture. Each unit has large expanses of windows and glass. A significant deal of attention was paid to the layout and orientation of the property.

The racquet club was the place to see and be seen in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Marilyn Monroe was said to have been discovered by the pool at the racquet club.

Please note:
This is a small and quiet community... If you are looking for a place to have parties or play loud music by the pool, this isn't the place for you. For the home owners, and the rest of the residents, this is a relaxing retreat (with an emphasis on treat!) from the outside world.
