Description

Introducing Glass and Steel House #1. This Donald Wexler and Ric Harrison designed home was built by the Alexander Construction Company in the early 1960s. Only seven of these incredible homes were built and constructed with materials both factory-fabricated and on-site assembled, specifically selected to withstand the desert elements with ease. Eight-foot stationary glass panels and sliding glass doors are flanked by steel construction, offering both visual interest and remarkable mountain views. This home is one out of only two boasting the signature folded-plate roofline, which gives this property its iconic, sought-after aesthetic. Wexler himself consulted on the tasteful restoration of this property, making it one of his last projects. Enter to a foyer which to the left leads to a formal dining and living area with an outdoor patio, and to the right, leads to the den off the large, private backyard with a boomerang-shaped pool. Both living areas, separated by the open kitchen, showcase the unique interior ceiling and mountain views through the ample glass and triangular clerestory windows. Walk down the hall to discover a bright guest room with mountain views and patio access, a guest bathroom with a laundry area, and the main bedroom which also boasts views, outdoor access, and an en-suite full bath. This stunning home has all the architectural street credit a Mid Century devotee could desire!
