542 S Calle Ajo


3 BD 2 BA | 1,323 SQFT | 3rd Bedroom is a detached Studio Casita

Classic 1933 Cottage

Don't miss this vintage Palm Springs house with detached casita located blocks from a grocery story and the shops and restaurants of downtown Palm Springs. Built in 1933, this California Cottage is a throwback to the romance of classic Palm Springs. Architectural details include a wonderful barrel shaped living room ceiling, oak flooring, and a classic brick fireplace.

The house has 2 large bedrooms each with walk-in closets, an updated full bath, large kitchen, and energy efficient casement windows. The 3rd bedroom is a 200 sqft legal guest casita with a full kitchen, ¾ bath, mini-split AC, large closet, and can easily accommodate a queen sized bed and dinette set. The private yard is like a secret garden, with a covered patio that is ideal for outdoor living, fantastic mountain views, and plenty of room for a pool.

The neighborhood is seeing lots of new investment with the home to the north recently being extensively updated and the 2 houses to the south currently undergoing major renovations and upgrades. With a little TLC this charming home with a terrific location can go from great to spectacular. In the photo gallery there are floor plans showing how to easily add a second bath and make the existing bath an en-suite to the rear bedroom. A second plan shows the bath addition in addition to an option to open the kitchen. Why live with someone elses bad choices when you can make make this the home of your dreams.
