There’s a Boulder in the Living Room of This $8.7M Palm Springs Midcentury

Designed by Hugh Kaptur and renovated by Albert Frey, the three-bedroom home evokes vintage glamour with natural stone, mirrored flourishes, and myriad terraces.

Location: 550 Palisades Drive, Palm Springs, California

Price: $8,750,000

Original Architect: Hugh Kaptur

Renovation Architect: Albert Frey

From the Agent: "One of a small collection of organic modern properties to grace the captivating landscape of the Coachella Valley, the home and its grounds were designed by Hugh Kaptur. Heralded as one of the most prolific architects of his time, Kaptur considered the entire parcel when creating an unmatched environment to enjoy the spectacular setting. Illuminated, meandering paths formed from the native mineral terrain and cascading rock waterfalls envelop the home, with its myriad terraces and verdant gardens. The distinct facade, walls of glass, and mirror-clad roofline canopy reflect the ever-changing tableau of light, horizon, and scenic wonder afforded by the property’s elevation and location."


The home is one of three properties perched on a private ridge, protected by a gated road.
