From the Agent: "Built in 1961 by noted Palm Springs builder W.G. Hercules, this incredibly rare design is a spectacular example of timeless midcentury architecture. Hercules, known for his concise use of space, only constructed a handful of these unique homes, and all of them in historic Deepwell Estates. This gem, just steps from the renowned Koerner House and the William Holden Estate, will transport you back to the golden age of Hollywood. Some of the original highlights include: a 1961 Frigidaire Flair range, custom-built cabinetry, a floating terrazzo fireplace, soaring open-beam ceilings in every room, natural rock walls, an in-floor planter, and a saltwater pool."

The restored residence sits in the heart of the historic Deepwell Estates neighborhood, amidst countless palm trees and San Jacinto mountain range.
