Charles DuBois’ Attractive Palm Springs A-Frame Is Mid-Century Perfection

May 28, 2019

The desert landscape of California’s fabled Palm Springs continues to serve as one of the primary illustrations of West Coast culture, boasting a large variety of mid-century buildings, homes, and structures that have no interest in modern-day renovation. One of the city’s most aesthetically pleasing dwellings, a beautifully-crafted A-Frame by Charles DuBois, has helped to preserve the facade of the hot locale since the late 1950s — and now, it’s being listed for sale.

Designed and built in 1958 by famed architect Charles DuBois, this “Swiss Miss” home rests in one of Palm Springs’ most desirable areas — surrounded by rock-enamored hills, California palms, and tailored landscaping that’s ripe with succulent inspiration. While most of the dwellings in the area boast a flat-roof design, DuBois original work-of-art departs from the normality of the city’s favorite styles, bringing a refreshing A-Frame orientation into the mix. An awe-inspiring 16-foot ceiling, gourmet kitchen, and master bedroom complement the home’s expansive backyard — a private hideaway outfitted with the finest “tropical” amenities, including a lavish pool area, deck, and socialization nook. The home is available now via Sotheby’s Realty for a hearty $2,999,900.

Purchase: $2,999,900
