The home, with its massive glass windows takes full advantage of the views, making this a true retreat.

The home was built in 1958 in Los Angeles, CA. The property includes a guesthouse, bamboo garden, pool, and is perched atop a knoll and surrounded by lush greenery.
Designed by architect Walter S. White for psychoanalyst Dr. Franz Alexander in 1955, in Palm Springs, CA. The house demonstrates the innovative use of structure typical of the architect, and embodies the distinctive characteristics of the modern movement as interpreted by White for the challenging desert environment of the Coachella Valley. The property is listed on the National Historic Register and is one of the more important pieces of architecture in the Coachella Valley.
