Charles DuBois designed this glitzy ‘chalet’ style A-frame home in Palm Springs so that it stands out from its neighbours.
The six-bedroom midcentury property was built in 1958 and has a pitched roof design that deviates from its flat and butterfly roofed neighbours designed by Joe Dunas and the Alexander Construction Company.
Now on the market in the Vista Las Palmas neighbourhood for $2.99m via Sotheby’s International Realty, the Palm Springs property is set around a double-height living room with stone fireplace and towering floor-to-ceiling windows. Other original details include tongue-and-groove ceilings and teak cabinetry.
The ‘Swiss Miss’ home is one of 15 left in Vista Las Palmas.
