Desert House. In 1923, J. Smeaton Chase estimated the population of Palm Springs, including the native population, to be less than 200 souls. The genesis of this desert oasis has been lost through scarcity of records, though local rumor dates construction to 1928. A 1932 Grant Deed & the cement brick construction, popular for its insulating qualities, suggest the hacienda portion was completed shortly thereafter. Later lower level guest suite adds approximately 1100 sq. ft. of living space not shown on public records. With updating by designer Doug Smith, the residence affords modern comfort and convenience, while evoking the romance of early days on the desert. Walled and gated, the property includes 3 bedrooms, office, pitched beam ceilings, fireplaces in the living room, formal dining room. & outdoor patios. an enviable kitchen, & a private entrance guest suite with the 4th bedroom, bath & kitchenette. Ample grounds provide generous parking, patios, gardens, fire pit & pool.
