Why we have a crush on this property

If chunky light fixtures and brown-and-orange wallpaper sound not like outdated accents, but dream home-worthy retro flair, then you’ll want to take a gander at this piece of eye candy for sale in Palm Springs.

Built in 1971 by architect Charles DuBois, the roomy three-bedroom makes best use of its more than 2,500 square feet with colorful vintage appointments. Inside, you’ll find an original wet bar, shining porcelain floors, period chandeliers, and a master bathroom with terrazzo tile.

The open-concept living and dining area is the star of the show. Walls of glass bathe it all in sunlight, while several clerestory windows make the room even brighter. Down the hall, the bedrooms are funky in their own way, with floral wallpaper, carpeting, and powder rooms with vintage vanities.

Outside, you’ll find a cactus garden in the front and a small patio shaded by the home’s low-slung roof around back. This one-of-a-kind spot is listed for $599,000 by Marc Lange and Carl Blea with Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty.
