Designed by Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison in 1961, Royal Hawaiian Estates is a 40-unit complex sprawled over 5 acres. Perfectly located in posh South Palm Springs, it is nestled up against the San Jacinto mountain range, giving the complex epic views and a tranquil setting. Situated within the complex, Unit #283  is the furthest unit away from any main street while still having unobstructed West facing views of the mountains. The two bedroom / two bath unit also features a "tiki lounge" which could be transformed into a 3rd bedroom if needed. Every detail of the unit has been lovingly and thoughtfully curated. Grasscloth wall coverings, flaming torches, flower leis and tiki carvings lend an authentic Hawaiian touch, whilst giving a whimsical nod to South Pacific culture. Walls of glass lead to a large back patio adorned with authentic tropical flora and fauna. The tastefully appointed kitchen and bathrooms are a modern update and artfully blend into their colorful surroundings. The Royal Hawaiian Estates were designated one of Palm Springs first historic districts in 2010, blending modern aesthetics with Polynesian architecture such as "tiki apexes" and "flying sevens". It is a Mills Act property and qualifies for drastically reduced property taxes which helps assist in the maintenance of each unit and the property as a whole. The property is Fee simple (you own the land). RHE has also been a popular featured property in Modernism Week over many years including 2020.
