1405 Avenida Sevilla

Located within the southernmost tip of Palm Springs, 1405 Avenida Sevilla, one of the last homes designed by the late, great Donald Wexler, an architectural grandfather of the desert, the home is cradled by the surrounding mountain ranges, delimiting vistas while all the while expanding an introspection, meditation, and contemplation only enabled by the dry, dry desert.

The entertainment spaces of the home easily ebb and flow into each other, allowing for a meaningful interactions between the people and things within the different spaces. The only factor that can rival the gracious openness of the plan is the generous use of glass throughout the home—sheet upon sheet of it is used it capitalize on the expansive views of the surrounding mountains.

Very much akin to the esprit de corps of the public rooms, the private bedrooms of the home are highly interactive and situated so as to take advantage of the privileged position it possesses and the views, landscaping, and numerous exterior and interior spaces such a site requires.

The vast xeriscape landscape is dominated by a massive rectangular blue pool and spa, reflecting the always blue sky above.

1405 Avenida Sevilla is based on 1155 East Granvia Valmonte, which was completed in 2015 and sold for $2,245,000 in 2016, the very last home Donald Wexler physically worked on before his death in 2015. I am a more partial to the pool and spa combination employed at this home versus at 1405 Avenida Sevilla, yet love the floating dining room fireplace of 1405 Avenida Sevilla over the large, hulking fireplace installed in 1155 East Granvia Valmonte.

Please see the below floor plan of 1155 East Granvia Valmonte, a design which is very much followed to the “t” at 1405 Avenida Sevilla.


1405 Avenida Sevilla, a 3 bedroom, 2.75 bathroom, 2,780 square foot home on a 21,780 square foot lot, is currently listed by Marc Sanders and Eric Lavey of The Agency for $2,399,000.
