- Koerner House by E. Stewart Williams


Palm Springs Historical Society offers inside look at Koerner House

Built in 1955 , the Koerner House is located in the coveted Deepwell neighborhood of Palm Springs, CA. This 4,224 square feet mid-century house on 1.1 acres was designed by prolific architect E. Stewart Williams whose distinct mid-century modern style significantly shaped the Coachella Valley's architectural landscape. The four-bedroom, four-bath beauty has floor to ceiling windows that line the back of the 1955 home, gazing out to the rectangular pool, grassy lawns, with views of the towering Mount San Jacinto. It's a perfect example of architect E. Stewart Williams' open simplicity.

PSHS hosted a private cocktail party during DOCOMOMO weekend and Modernism Week at this lovely home.
