This stunning, glass walled, 5000 SF single story mid century modern exclusive home exchange on three sprawling and secluded acres, built in 1956 and updated for all modern conveniences, was Frederick Loewe’s “Little Camelot”. It is a private, self contained special event venue, featuring four hotel style bedrooms with en suite bathrooms (plus powder room), a tennis court, grotto style spa, pool, waterfalls, fountains, sculptures, original art and an authentic Palm Springs feel to the decor. Time Magazine’s November 14, 1960 cover story described this home as an “airy, glass pleasure dome.”

The exquisite master suite is extremely spacious at over 700 square feet -- the perfect setting for a Bridal Suite. Luxurious and comfortable, it features two massive sliding glass doors which integrate the indoors to the outdoors and open to the outdoor swimming pool/patio area. Frederick Loewe so loved the views his unique property provided that he placed his bed and nightstand on a turntable, allowing him to enjoy the vista from multiple angles throughout the day. This feature remains. Heavy floor to ceiling draperies block light and provide privacy should it be desired. Additional amenities in this room include built-in quarter sawn book cases filled with books, paneled gas fireplace, 42” flat screen HDTV, cable, Blu-Ray, desk, seating area with sofa, upholstered chairs, ottomans and a coffee table. Large en suite bathroom has marble topped double vanity, tub and shower with 10 shower heads. Most of the details in this lovely room are original.
The casita bedroom, queen bedroom and living room also feature massive sliding glass doors offering unobstructed views of the grounds, mountian and valley. The dining room seats 14 and features dramatic glass walls and a crystal clear view of the mountains, waterfall and polished marble sculpture. Two chandeliers with dimmers provide romantic lighting for formal dinners. The living room includes a baby grand piano and ample seating: 3 chaise lounges, 2 sofa beds, a sofa and numerous chairs. Across the room is a clubby built-in bar, original to the house.
Set on a boulder strewn hillside, the estate offers unparalleled, jaw dropping, 360 degree views of the San Jacinto Mountains, Coachella Valley below and extensively landscaped grounds and paths. The view extends for miles across the valley and mountains. At all times of the day, from the early hours of the morning as the sun rises over the valley until the sun sets and the city lights sparkle alive, this estate offers the best vantage point in Palm Springs, bar none. There are over 100 olive trees, 33 palm trees, numerous flowers and cacti and a massive rose garden which was designed and planted by Frederick Loewe himself.
The extensively landscaped grounds also features a variety of entertaining options with expansive main lawn and 'the point'; lower lawn with sculpture water feature; a two-tiered wood deck with unsurpassed views; waterfall feature, the picturesque rose garden; and the upper lawn area and tennis court. The estate is often referred to as “magical”. It is the perfect setting for a private family vacation, wedding, corporate event, photo shoots, and other special events. The residence is furnished with many period pieces and extensive art and memorabilia throughout the house and grounds. The Loewe Estate is perfectly situated in a small enclave in the exclusive Little Tuscany neighborhood near downtown and 10 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport.
Set on a boulder strewn hillside with views of the entire valley floor below, the estate offers unparalleled 360 degree views, that extend for miles, of the San Jacinto Mountains and Coachella Valley and extensively landscaped grounds and paths with fountains, waterfalls, grotto style private spa with jets, and tennis court.

An amazing address with breathtaking views of Palm Springs, and Coachella Valley.
Around the block is Kaufmann Desert House, and many other architectural and historical gems in the neighbourhood to walk past and admire.
This was a great introduction to Palm Springs for my partner and I! We recommend joining some of the Palm Springs Historical Society walking tours each morning (one can reserve their tours online).
Thanks again for hosting us.
