Commanding attention on three parcels of land, 608 S Indian Trail sits proudly behind a four-foot high fieldstone wall that circumnavigates two corners. The home itself is intelligently divided into two very functional halves. To the north, the main living quarters include two en suite bedrooms, a den, a formal living room, a bar, a casual eating area, a kitchen, a breakfast room, a formal dining room, a powder room, and access to a basement. To the south with separate entrances are two additional en suite bedrooms. Combined, the three lots total approximately 25,700 square feet in the heart of Palm Springs and boast a 40-foot by 20-foot swimming pool, two water features, a naturalistic dry creek bed, a reflecting pool that can be converted into a koi pond, a ten-person spa, a small fieldstone band platform, lawns, extensive plantings, and an elaborate outdoor grilling station. These surprises offer delights around every corner.This is an example of Spanish-Colonial Revival architecture at its finest. Large hacienda-style covered walkways join the rooms. These wide-roof loggias create summer shade and outdoor living areas. This very lifestyle born in the late-1930s and early-1940s inspired millions of Americans. Poolside here helped define the quintessential California dream. The buildings were originally designed by noted architects Floyd Brewster and Hiram Benedict for Hollywood cartoonist Hal Forrest. Later, the home was owned by Mr. Joseph Schenck.
