Full Details

Experience the midcentury leisure lifestyle created by the revered architect William Krisel. Sandpiper, his magnificent midcentury masterpiece, continues to delight owners half a century later. The sophisticated design uses pared down forms and large expanses of glass creating a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors. Krisel╩╝s devotion to details ensures each home has site lines to the pool with vistas of the mountains beyond; concrete block stairs incorporate the natural contour of the property complementing the geometric angles of the pools; strategic positioning of homes and block screens on patios ensure privacy within expansive landscaping designed by Krisel. Masterful interior designs and open floor plans merge with multiple outdoor spaces to encourage a carefree desert lifestyle. Homes on the tour have Historic Site Designation and are notable for screen block applied to exterior walls, a decorative design feature exclusive to these Sandpiper homes. Tour homes showcase sensitive restorations with retention of original elements along with contemporary updates highlighting a midcentury esthetic. Money raised will support our ongoing desert landscaping projects.
