Palm Springs is one of California’s prime getaway spots. From the Coachella Valley Music Festival to its elegant mid-century modernist architecture, the desert resort city is a welcoming rest stop for city dwellers from all over. And for those on the hunt for a new hideaway, we present this beautiful beacon of simplicity for your consideration.
Architect Jim Jennings built Desert House in 2009 as his own private retreat. The idea is privacy and seclusion, with no driveway, no typical front door, and no house number. Behind an eight-foot concrete wall lies two courtyards, a swimming pool, and a modest, minimalist living space under a flat floating steel roof.
If you’re into clean lines — and Jennings clearly is — Desert House is a modernist haven in the quiet of the desert, with a view of the mountains in the distance for that perfect moment of zen.
