With four bedrooms and four full baths, there is plenty of space in this mid-century modern ranch style home – which was included in this year’s “Art and Architecture Behind the Gates in Indian Wells” event.
This desert residence was initially built for Elliott Roosevelt, the son of President Franklin Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor, in the early 1960s, and it was designed by famed architect Stan Sackley. The younger Roosevelt was a World War ll Air Corps general.
While the 3,200 square foot home still maintains the look and feel of its genre, it has been extensively updated. With a light and bright interior, it is also loaded with many desirable features and amenities – including a stacked stone fireplace, walnut kitchen cabinets, and quartz countertops.
The roughly 1/3 acre lush green (and private) yard is beautifully landscaped – and the grounds include several citrus trees. Here you will also find an exterior fire pit and in-ground swimming pool.
Located at 45805 Cielito Drive in Indian Wells, this unique part of U.S. history is currently listed for sale at $1.1 million, and the home is being offered fully furnished. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
