A Palm Springs Neighborhood For Art Lovers

palm springs movie colony and artist colony homes for salepalm springs movie colony and artist colony homes for sale
Since its beginning, Palm Springs has been known as an artist colony, attracting artists and art lovers from around the world.

While much of the art can be viewed in museums and galleries, a surprising number of artistic works and installments can be viewed on street corners, in front yards and in our parks.

Pictured above are the larger than life, found art creations of the artist who lives in this Movie Colony neighborhood home. The robot-themed art is colorful, playful and on full display for neighbors and passers by.

You’ll find this home on the corner of E. Granvia Valmonte and N Arquilla Road, just a block from Frank Sinatra’s former Twin Palms Estate and a couple of blocks from Ruth Hardy Park (where you can also view other public art work).

Tour two new architectural homes, in the Desert Palisades neighborhood of Palm Springs, located at the top of Racquet Club Road, during Modernism Week.

One of the hillside homes is based on a never-constructed plan by the late midcentury modern architect Al Beadle.

The other home was designed by local Palm Springs architect Lance O’Donnell, who is well known for his midcentury-style modern architecture.

The two homes are within walking distance of one another. The Modernism Week tour will be the debut of these two desert modern, custom hillside homes.

Palm Springs Crime Statistics

As Realtors, we are asked lots of questions, and are happy to answer them all, if we can. Below is an email I received today. The buyers asks a question that I’m often asked:

“Hi Steve, can you tell me which areas are the safest in the desert? May sound like a silly question, but we have no idea. We were looking at a unit in [a popular neighborhood] and were told it was a high crime area. I Googled it and it seems as if that is true. Would you say [another popular neighborhood] is in a safer area? Thanks”

Here is how I always answer this popular question: The best way to check neighborhood safety and crime statistics is to go online. Each city usually has a website that lists crimes by type and area. You can also call the cities and they can often give you this information over the phone. Anything I could say on the subject would just be hearsay and not based on fact. I can only speak to the neighborhood I live in, and even that would be mostly based on what I’ve heard.

Bottom line: It’s always best to go to the source for the latest and most accurate information. And the best source from crime information is the probably the police department.

If you want to know what homes are selling for or how to quickly sell your home at market value, I’m pretty certain that I’m the best source for that and can offer you the most accurate and up to the minute information.
