Home Of The Week
38727 Maracaibo Circle W
Set in the Desert Modern mecca of Palm Springs, where architectural competition is fierce, this pyramidal gem stands out. Lauded by famed architect Hugh Kaptur as “the best home I’ve ever designed,” this marvel is a marriage of unique architecture and flawless ingenuity.
The home’s distinctive twin pyramid roofs exude a prominent style that creates their own skyline. This characteristic serves not only in a fashionable capacity, but functional as well, allowing a glow to pitch in from the skylights and open air to flow unimpeded amid the towering ceilings and smooth, rounded walls.
The alfresco foyer entrance is crowned with a smaller open-beamed wooden pyramid, welcoming visitors into a cool, stunning interior with complementary textures and structures, all pleasing to the eye at every turn. Creamy-white walls pair beautifully with caramel-toned wood in the form of built-in features, cabinets, shuttered windows and vaulted ceilings. To the right of the entrance is the subtly sunken living room with a kiva fireplace, and to the left is a formal dining room filled with natural light, with an office down the hall. French doors open to the veranda and pool, offering a breathtaking view of the Coachella Valley mountains.
The master bedroom, smoothly sculpted with in-wall shelf space and a kiva fireplace, has an en-suite bath, dressing area and walk-in closet. Each bedroom opens to the exterior, exhibiting a balance between domestic life and nature. It’s only a short distance from each bedroom to the veranda, the yard or the detached casita that can double as a pool house.
Other features include a three-car garage and a solar power system. Located in the gated community of Parc Andreas, residents also have access to tennis courts. With easy-living appeals and indoor-outdoor access throughout, this estate prioritizes the tailored attractiveness and environmental appreciation typical of its style.
