A MID-CENTURY MODERN JEWEL IN THE DESERT

 

Situated on a highly desirable 1/3-acre corner lot in the heart of Sunrise Park, Burton House features four bedrooms and three full baths with over 2,300 square feet of indoor living space.

Built in 1958, the “boomerang” shape of Burton House is a tribute to its era and provides fabulous separation of living space and guest quarters.  Featuring dual master suites and expansive common areas both indoors and out, this Palm Springs vacation home allows all guests to relax either as a group or on their own.  Many of the architectural design elements of Burton House are attributed to the work of the notable Paul R. Williams, with his influences seen throughout the home.
