Located in the heart of the Old Las Palmas neighborhood, this stunning property was the former residence of renowned Interior Designer, Arthur Elrod. It was featured in Architectural Digest, Interior Design and Palm Springs Life magazines in the 1960s.  It has been well preserved, allowing a new generation of design aficionados to immerse themselves in the era! 

Located near the Uptown Design District and Palm Canyon Drive, you are within walking distance of great restaurants like Eight4Nine, Cheeky’s, Copley’s on Palm Canyon and Workshop Kitchen+Bar, to name a few, as well as a boutique coffee shop, Ernest Coffee.  Did I mention the great vintage furniture shops and boutique clothiers that will help you experience a truly living the Palm Springs experience! The Elrod Estate in Old Las Palmas provides timeless amenities in a setting that has been carefully preserved as an homage to its era.

Arthur Elrod was often referred to as the “Design King of the Desert”.  Via Lola not only served as his personal residence, but it also was his test lab for polishing his design techniques and point of view which he would become famous for.  It’s a truly incredible time capsule, in the best way.

This 4,780 square foot home features 4 bedrooms and 4 1/2 half bathrooms on a 1/3-acre lot. Designed for the utmost in privacy, the grounds of the home are surrounded by lush, mature landscaping with both the pool area and patios walled and gated. 

The stunning 12-foot double doors are adorned with ornate brass doorknobs that greet guests and usher them into the entry courtyard featuring a reflecting pool and fountain. Upon entering the main doors, you are transported to this extraordinary and incredible time capsule.

The great room features 14-foot ceilings, with views to the patio and pool through the eastern facing wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. A custom V’Soske wall-to-wall cream rug with bright floral accents anchors the room, adorned with a 22-foot custom designed sofa and large free form coffee table, creating the ideal space for a social gathering or a quiet conversation. 

Throughout the home, original décor and accent pieces remain as an homage to Mr. Elrod’s vision. Off the great room, is an amazing entertainment space featuring a sunken bar, game table and sofa. It is perfect for cocktails or casual conversation. Imagine serving your favorite cocktail creation from the vintage bar accessories!

Located adjacent to the living room is the dining room, where you can accommodate up to 8 guests with ease. Dual, sliding glass doors provide views to the covered alfresco dining area and BBQ, as well as outdoor living room. The estate features two kitchens, one as the primary kitchen, with the second serving area as the prep or butler’s kitchen. Both are thoughtfully equipped for at-home meal preparation. 

Off the main Kitchen is a breakfast nook, ideal for casual dining. The home features 4 bedrooms, each with en-suite baths and Flat Screen TVs. The hallway, off the dining room leads to the Master Suite and first Guest Bedroom. The Master Suite is oversized and offers a custom bed with dual double mattresses, sitting area, large en-suite bathroom and oversized walk-in closet, as well as a sliding glass door to the pool.

The First Guest Bedroom features a Queen-sized canopy bed, en-suite bathroom and sliding glass door to the outdoor patio. The “Library Room” is located off the lounge area, featuring two Twin-sized beds, en-suite bathroom and two sliding glass doors leading to the pool patio. This room doubles as the Second Guest Bedroom. The Third Guest Bedroom is located off the kitchen, offering a Queen-sized bed and en-suite bathroom. 

The pool and patio areas are expansive, allowing for you and all your guests to relax and enjoy the Palm Springs lifestyle! From the pool, you will enjoy stunning western facing mountain views. Or take in the sights as you lounge on vintage Italian outdoor furniture while sipping cocktails on the expansive covered patio terrace.  On the northern side of the home, there is a large patio as well, perfect for nighttime lounging or outdoor dining. Several iconic photos and photo shoots have been taken at this house, and you and your family and friends can be a part of that rich history.
