This midcentury Swiss Miss home is defined by its dramatic A-frame roof.
Designed by architect Charles Dubois in 1958, this Swiss Miss home is located in the glamorous Palm Springs neighborhood of Vista Las Palmas—home to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars in the 1950s. Dubois designed a series of these one-level, chalet-style homes, which are defined by dramatic A-frame roofs that extend straight into the ground, creating sheltered porches in front and shaded terraces in back. The A-frame structure also creates a soaring, double-height main living space.
Set against a stunning mountain backdrop, 755 West Crescent has been completely reimagined and updated by its current owners. The owners enjoyed the process of renovating the architecturally significant property, although they’re ready to move on to their next project—so they’ve placed the charming home on the market.
