Described by architectural historian and author Steven Keylon as one of architectural designer and builder Herbert W. Burns' 'more lavish homes,' this Little Tuscany residence in Palm Springs is now a Mid-Century Modern masterpiece. Partially demolished and neglected for many years, the 1948 home of Dr. and Mrs. Gillman now reveals a phenomenal restoration by Thomboy Properties. The Gillman house was designed to take advantage of the desert's beauty and appealing climate. Burns captured the indoor-outdoor lifestyle by seamlessly running his trademark Arizona sandstone from the outside to the inside. He also extended outdoor living with wide horizontal overhangs for shade and sun protection. Approx. 4700 s.f., this welcoming home reveals a half-acre homesite with a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath main house and a 2-bedroom, 1-bath guest house. Its restoration adds poured terrazzo floors, solar, and Fleetwood sliders and windows. A custom kitchen features teak cabinetry, large island and pro-level appliances. Reeded-glass entry gates and privacy walls frame grounds that host a pool, spa, fire pit, outdoor kitchen, and many other high-end amenities often reserved for premium resort-style living.
