Canyon View Estates was a collaboration between developer Roy Fey and architect William Krisel completed in 1962. Here Krisel's genius created a plan of attached houses clustered along generous green belt landscaping to create a community of homes that exudes mid-century design elements. Walls are composed of textured concrete block, screen block, and various colors of natural rock. Roof lines are varied as well to enliven the streetscape. This particular home may offer one of the most dramatic mountain views to be found in the complex. Located on a corner, the home offers unequal privacy from the adjoining residence giving it more a feeling of a single-family residence. The interior is decidedly minimal and fresh with Formica cabinetry throughout in colors of pale orange, green and yellow which, interestingly happen to be the palate favored by famed local architect Albert Frey. A large light-filled great room is capped by a pop-up multi-gabled roof that resembles a large unfurled parasol surrounded by clerestory windows allowing light to pour in from every direction and views to extend out. This room leads directly to a larger-than-usual patio that is partially covered. Beyond the patio is one of the most dramatic must-see mountain views imaginable. The main bedroom also affords dramatic views of these mountains directly from the bed. The ensuite bath here is generously sized and features a skylight continuing the theme of light and space exhibited throughout this home. The second light-filled bath is shared with the other two bedrooms, one of which has been opened and currently functions as a den that also captures the large mountain view. The kitchen has a unique extra window allowing for south-facing light to enter this space. Washer and dryer are located in a separate laundry room outside the unit. The carport retains the original jalousie windows which allow for extra light but keeps dust out. Surrounded by mature fruit trees and palms, here is architectural living as only Palm Springs can provide. Of course, the complex was recently featured in the film Don't Worry Darling.
