Canyon View Estates ( 1962, Palmer & Krisel)

- South Palm Springs

Built in the early 1960s in six stages, Canyon View Estates in South Palm Springs is a Midcentury Modern community developed by Roy Fey and designed by Dan Palmer and William Krisel. The community showed a new kind of architectu­re for the era, which featured innovative solutions that have now become defining features of midcentury design, such as imaginativ­e butterfly rooflines and triangular clerestory windows that allowed light in and made the most of the views— but also provided privacy. Many of the 180 condos in this community have been meticulous­ly restored to reflect their visionary design and its six HOAs strive to preserve the architectu­ral style and the neighborho­od’s distinctiv­e feel. The popular “Cul- de- Sac Experience” tour is held here during Modernism Week Fall Preview, and some homes are also offered as a special neighborho­od tour during Modernism Week.
