Built in 2002 in Palm Desert, California, this architectural home, known as The Fritz Residence, fits in easily with the mid-century homes in nearby Palm Springs.

The home has been recognized by various publications and websites for its unique approach to creating a distinct space that is simultaneously enclosed yet open with its design.

The home was created by OJMR architects and wraps around its pool.

The home features 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, plus a den with 2787 square feet of living space, on an elevated lot with city and mountain views.

Striking details of the home include walnut cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling “Fleetwood” glass doors.

Sleek cabinets, dark countertops, and polished concrete floors define the modern kitchen.

. The design features an open floor plan for today’s living with one wing entirely dedicated to the master suite and the other wing for the guest bedrooms.

Both wings connect at the main public space that includes the living room, dining room, kitchen, and entry foyer.

All rooms access the outdoor pool/courtyard space with floor-to-ceiling walls of glass.

The outdoors has mature landscaping, privacy, and views. This home is located in the desirable “Summit” area of South Palm Desert, seconds to the El Paseo shopping/dining district and adjacent to world-class golf and country clubs.

This desert retreat is listed for $1.195 million with Bennion Deville Homes, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International®.
