This midcentury Swiss Miss home is defined by its dramatic A-frame roof.

Designed by architect Charles Dubois in 1958, this Swiss Miss home is located in the glamorous Palm Springs neighborhood of Vista Las Palmas—home to some of Hollywood's biggest stars in the 1950s. Dubois designed a series of these one-level, chalet-style homes, which are defined by dramatic A-frame roofs that extend straight into the ground, creating sheltered porches in front and shaded terraces in back. The A-frame structure also creates a soaring, double-height main living space.

The chalet-style, A-frame roof extends straight into the ground. A band of stone wraps around the residence and visually integrates the home with its natural surroundings.
