Hot Property: A Palm Springs Getaway in Midway Hollow

All that’s missing is the desert.

Two years ago, I visited Palm Springs for a wedding and I’m still not over it. It’s my dream to one day go to Modernism Week and do a deeper dive into the mecca of Mid-Century architecture, see more bright bougainvillea than my eyes can handle, and make a likely futile attempt to pick a favorite front door.

There aren’t too many Dallas homes that placate my intense Palm Springs obsession. Occasionally, I’ll find a colorful front door that brings me back, or a Mid-Century-inspired breeze block that charms, but rarely does an entire home seem like it could truly belong in the California desert landscape.

That being said, 4155 Lomita Lane in Midway Hollow is pretty on point. Originally built in 1956, the Mid-Century Modern home catches your eye from the curb with its agave plants, breeze block, and a bright yellow door. But the real treat is the home’s interior, which recently underwent a meticulous renovation thanks to its current owners, who made sure not to compromise the architectural integrity of the home.

The result: an airy, open floor plan featuring high-end appliances from Fisher Paykel and Subzero-Wolf, a waterfall quartz island, Hans Grohe fixtures, Heath tile, and commercial grade aluminum windows all punctuated by many a mod lighting fixture or an eye-catching tile wall. Out back, a modern outdoor fireplace sets the mood on the impeccable deck, surrounded by an Ipe wood privacy fence supporting the illusion that your cool backyard gathering could be happening in some desert resort town far, far away.
