The house that famed Palm Springs architect Donald Wexler built for his family in 1955 is on the market, with an asking price of $1.75 million.

Wexler, of course, was one of the desert’s leading architects during the midcentury modern period. He designed the Palm Springs International Airport and commercial buildings throughout the Coachella Valley, as well as the famous strip of steel-framed houses in Racquet Club Estates.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house in Ruth Hardy Park features some of Wexler’s architectural trademarks: floor-to-ceiling glass walls, post-and-beam construction and an open, L-shaped floor plan. Beams that support the roof extend a few feet past the walls, creating covered spaces outdoors.

In 2008, o2 Architecture founder Lance O’Donnell and Wexler himself oversaw a complete remodel of the house. The 2,424-square-foot house now features a modernized kitchen, saltwater pool, desert landscaping and car port.
