Home Of The Week

2587 South Pequeno Circle

Palm Springs

Known as “The Pod House,” this unique Palm Springs residence is iconic architect William Krisel’s only work comprised of five interconnecting polygon-shaped pods.

Beyond the serene entry pond and waterfall, this unique mid century-style home features towering ceilings, skylights, original white terrazzo and brass inlaid floors and hand-forged rock walls. Uninterrupted walls of glass in the living area provide magnificent views of the Indian Canyons Golf Course and endless mountain ranges. An impressive floor-to-ceiling fireplace enclosed in copper and stone divides the living and dining rooms.

The home offers five bedrooms, four-and-one-half bathrooms and an updated state-of-the-art kitchen filled with abundant natural light from a skylight. More intimate areas include a cozy den with a fireplace, a double en-suite and triple-closet master bedroom, luxurious modern baths and a separate wing offering third and fourth bedrooms/offices and a shared bath. There is also a casita with a private entrance and bath.

Situated on more than half an acre of land, the grounds boast a sprawling lush lawn, beautiful landscaping, a spacious outdoor entertaining area with several patios, a large pool with a waterfall and spa, two fire pits and a built-in grill. A large driveway leads to a two-car garage with a covered spot for a golf cart.

Krisel modernized Southern California tract housing and helped shape Palm Springs’ reputation as a haven for midcentury modern architecture. Although the five connected pods make this a one-of-a-kind residence, the home also features many of Krisel’s trademark modernist and elegant touches, such as expansive walls of glass to accentuate outdoor views and post-and-beam construction, allowing for fewer walls and brick fireplaces.

Built in 1968, this home is one of Palm Springs’ most coveted mid century estates.
