A midcentury retreat in Palm Springs, a 2021 townhouse in West Hollywood and a 1912 Craftsman bungalow in San Diego.

This 1957 house, recently used as a vacation rental, was designed by Palmer & Krisel, an architecture firm responsible for numerous midcentury tract homes in the area. It is a few blocks from popular resorts on East Palm Canyon Drive, one of the city’s main thoroughfares, and less than a 10-minute drive from downtown. Joshua Tree National Park is about an hour away. Driving to Los Angeles takes two hours.

Size: 1,600 square feet

Price per square foot: $1,187

Indoors: The house sits behind a yard landscaped with drought-tolerant plants, gravel and palm trees.

The lemon-yellow front door opens into a foyer. Straight ahead is a living-and-dining room with midcentury-style furniture (the house is being sold fully furnished), terrazzo floors, a mirrored wall and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the backyard. This space is open to a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, vintage-style cabinetry, clerestory windows and a glass door that opens to a patio enclosed by a breeze-block wall.

All three bedrooms are off a hallway extending from the living area. The primary bedroom, at the far end, is big enough to hold a king-size bed; the en suite bathroom has a walk-in shower lined with gray tile. The other two bedrooms share a full bathroom off the main hallway with a combined tub and shower.

The restored Shasta travel trailer has a kitchenette and a built-in dining table.

Outdoor space: The property has several distinct outdoor spaces. The in-ground swimming pool off the living area is surrounded by a paved deck with plenty of space for lounge chairs. A hot tub and a firepit are around the corner, next to the trailer. The detached garage holds two cars.

Taxes: $23,736 (estimated)
