Amid the flutter of butterfly roofs and other specimens of midcentury modernism in The Mesa neighborhood in Palm Springs, a lone Craftsman home stands out on a grassy flat. The handcrafted property — offered for $1.6 million by Jerry Shea at Windermere Real Estate — features Brazilian Koa hardwood floors and several low-pitched rooflines, bearing exposed rafters — a signature of the home’s breed and the artisan’s expertise. A master wood mason from Montana designed the cabinetry built into each room. The entire place features antique amenities like claw-foot tubs, stained-glass windows, and a gigantic safe that once held blue prints to the Hiroshima bomb. It’s arguably the only true Craftsman in the desert, and it holds its own as an architectural wonder.
