Rich in Palm Springs history, 1366 Calle de Maria is one of the few remaining authentic treasures left in the desert. This visually striking home was designed by legendary architects Wexler and Harrison FAIA as a residence for William Boggess in 1955. Originally decorated by Arthur Elrod, built by Joseph Pawling, and landscaped by ''Cactus Slim'' Moorten. A distinct Japanese theme runs throughout, with many of the original design accents still intact, blending harmoniously with the minimalist and modern aesthetic. Bright and airy, this simple and elegant property features clean lines, a spacious living area with a floating fireplace, clerestory windows, sandblasted wood board-and-batten walls, stunning mountain views, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls and sliders that open to a private pool and outdoor patio. Known recently as the ''Zen House,'' the property has been owned for the last 22 years by revered Hollywood producer and former actress Yasuko Austin, and remarkably, it is still in nearly original condition after all this time. Situated on an oversized 11,761 SF lot in the heart of Deepwell Estates, and characterized by a sense of calm and serenity, this incredible and iconic home represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own and restore a true piece of architectural history.
