    Description

    The iconic Morse Residence located in the highly sought after Vista Las Palmas neighborhood is one of the finest residences in Palm Springs offering a truly unique architectural statement. This one of a kind home exemplifies the glamour of entertaining in the midcentury. Built by The Alexander Co. in 1961 and originally designed by renowned architects Dan Palmer and Willliam Krisel, the original owners worked with the infamous Harold "Hal" Levitt to completely redesign the home during the framing stage. Levitt's incredible work including the homes of notable celebrities in the Trousdale Estates community of Beverly Hills. The sleek midcentury modern exterior w/original terrazzo walkways just hints at the surprises inside-unlike any other in Palm Springs. Offering an unparalleled indoor/outdoor experience including a sunken living room that opens to a fully equipped swim-up bar w/glass pocket doors the disappear into the home's stone walls. A stunning entry of poured terrazzo leads into an impressive gallery, past a leather tufted powder room. Vintage terrazzo continues throughout the entire home including floors, showers, bar, countertop and patios. The Malm fireplace in the oversized main bedroom is stunning. The Morse House was the 1st home in Vista Las Palmas to be designated as a Class 1 Historic Site & is eligible for "Mills Act" tax credits.
