The architecturally significant Kenaston Residence is an outstanding example of Desert Modern residential design as interpreted by local architect, E. Stewart Williams. Large expanses of floor to ceiling glass sheltered by deep overhangs extending from flat roofs create a powerful interaction between the indoors and outdoors. The 1957 Kenaston Residence is the last remaining house that Stewart Williams designed in Rancho Mirage that retains its integrity of design and materials. The house has been carefully restored to a level close to its original condition in consultation with architect Williams himself. The interior furnishings of the home have been carefully curated to beautifully and accurately represent the original indoor-outdoor living plan. Possessing exceptional significance for its embodiment of the distinguishing characteristics of Desert Modernism from the hand of a master, the property is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Palm Springs Modern Committee (PS ModCom) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of Desert Modern architecture and design.
