Donald Wexler’s Midcentury Jewel in Palm Springs Asks $1.75M

By Jenny Xie

Location: Palm Springs, California
Price: $1,750,000

If you’ve ever wondered how legendary Modernist architects might update their own midcentury designs, decades after initial construction, take a good look at this 1955- built steel-frame treasure conceived by none other than the late Donald Wexler, a founding father of Palm Springs modernism. Wexler, who passed away this past June at the age of 89, built the home for his own family and lived there for 38 years. In 1960, Wexler completed an expansion, and in 2008, he assisted current owners on a thorough restoration that rejuvenated the spirit of the house.

Now on the market for $1.75M, the sublime three-bedroom, 2,424-square-foot residence sits behind a privacy wall and features gorgeous landscaping work by William Kopelk and Marcello Villano. Inside, the L-shaped home looks ultra polished with terrazo floors, restored beams, updated furnishings, and large glass walls connecting rooms to outside terraces and a saltwater pool.
