About Racquet Club West

There is a unique mix of property types in the Racquet Club West neighborhood that make this area very popular. Residents like the mid-century modern architecture as well as the affordability. This community is one of the more economical ones in the City of Palm Springs, California.

The highly desired “Alexander homes” were built by the Alexander Construction Company between 1959 and 1962. These homes are well known throughout the world for their designs by Jack Meiselman, William Krisel, and Donald Wexler. These schemes make use of the mid-century modern elements like tall walls of glass, wafer thin roof lines, and clerestory windows. Floor plans allow for easy movement from room to room, making it ideal for inside/outside living.

At first each home offered homeowners identical floor plans that were set up for vacation getaways. Then Krisel came up with a variety of exterior styles by combining five different roofline choices and two different street positions. These homes are appealing because of their high ceilings and open living. And the lots average 10,000 square feet.

The location of Racquet Club West is also ideal as it brings the lifestyle of downtown Palm Springs close to residents. The city sees over a million visitors a year and offers upscale shopping, fine dining, tennis, golf, swimming, hiking, biking, and horseback riding. There are also 150 hotel accommodations with over 6,000 rooms available. Palm Canyon Drive features the main shopping district and the wilderness of Coachella Valley has everything for the outdoor enthusiast.

Cultural events include: the Palm Springs International Film Festival; the Agua Caliente Cultural Museum; The Caballeros; the Palm Springs Festival of Lights Parade; the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies, and Modernism Week. The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway travels a steep incline to 8,516 feet above the valley floor to offer visitors dining opportunities and trails for hiking.
