Located in the Warm Sands neighborhood, this authentic Spanish revival home exudes the charm and grace of the early days of Palm Springs. Constructed in 1937, the home has many beautiful architectural details throughout such as original wrought iron light fixtures, casement windows and doors, period-correct tile work in the bathrooms, coved ceilings, original concrete and tile floors plus many old world touches that are not offered on homes built today. You can feel the history here. In fact, there is Hollywood history. The home was built for Charles Correll, who was Andy of the famous Amos and Andy Radio program which ran in the 30s and 40s. Many early programs were broadcast from Palm Springs' own El Mirador hotel. The house was designed in the style of an Andalusian Farmhouse with 4 bedrooms each with its own bath (3 en-suite) and a large great room that features massive beamed ceilings and a dramatic stone fireplace. A large covered porch with French doors provides a perfect entry to the home as well as a delightful place to sit and listen to the nearby bubbling water fountain. Through an opposite set of French doors, you head out to the pool area with wonderful views of the mountains beyond. The private backyard features flagstone pool decking and is a great place to soak up the warm desert sun and cool off with a dip in the swimming pool. Nearby, the Spanish tile steps take you from the pool area to the original sleeping porch which now serves as a wonderful observation deck or dining/cocktail terrace from which you can enjoy fantastic views of the pool, garden, mountains, and surrounding neighborhood. Near the stairs, you will also find the 4th bedroom with ensuite bath and small kitchenette set up casita style. Back inside the main house, the bedrooms are beautifully separated at different ends of the living room giving privacy when you have a full house. And check out the large and updated eat-in kitchen which features quartz countertops and a subzero refrigerator, Viking stove, and terrazzo flooring, all artfully integrated into the vintage cabinetry with period-style tile backsplash This historically and architecturally important home has been featured in both Country Home magazine and in the book California Colonial-The Spanish & Rancho Revival Styles. Come and make your own history here.
