Photos: This Retro Palm Springs Home Takes You Back To 1969
A Palm Springs home that recently went on the market will whisk you back to 1969.
This home, located at 2055 S Joshua Tree Place in Palm Springs, is currently for sale for $850,000. According to the listing, this gorgeous, 3-bed, 3-bath home was built in 1969 and features "a dramatic gated entry, terrazzo floors in the hallways, custom drapes, custom furniture, den with bar and custom bar stools, a fireplace, pool, spa, views of San Jacinto mountains, two car garage, and countless details and features to enhance your experience and lifestyle."
The home has only changed hands once since it was built, and the decor from the first owners has remained the same ever since, according to TODAY. The living room, dining room and one of the bedrooms are very green, while other bedrooms are completely done in blue or magenta. The second couple to move in decided to maintain the aesthetic, only making changes to the kitchen. That couple recently passed away, and their children are listing the home.
Lucio Bernal, the listing agent at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices/California Properties commented on the home's pristine vintage condition, telling TODAY that "to re-create that stuff today would be pretty expensive."
