Full Details

Enjoy an exclusive tour of this stunning 1951 midcentury modern home in the star struck historic El Mirador neighborhood.  Meticulously restored during the past year, this is the first time this home has been on tour for Modernism Week since its completion. The gorgeous estate is the former home of Lawrence Welk, the American big-band leader and TV personality from "The Lawrence Welk Show" who created ballroom “Champagne Music” and lived in the home until 1978.   

The large 3-bedroom/3 bathroom home is nearly 2,800 square feet. Set in a beautiful park like setting among the former homes of Lucy and Dezi Arnaz, Eddie Cantor, Truman Capote and Keely Smith, this exquisite midcentury beauty embodies all of the simple luxury and Palm Springs magic of the early 1950’s. Gorgeous gardens and spectacular mountain views must have captured the Welks as well as the Lennon Sisters who were frequent quests.  Now you have the opportunity to peek behind the gates of this rarely seen gem.   

Ticket sales benefit the Historic Plaza Theatre restoration project and Modernism Week.

$40
