As Alexander built more and more homes, they added more features and square footage. Alexander homes were the first in Palm Springs to offer large, deep built-in swimming pools; some other features were open floor plans, lots of windows, clean lines with no window or door trim, and very distinctive rooflines, most notably the "Folded Plate" and "Butterfly".
When the homes were originally built, they were meant to be affordable for the average person, but today an Alexander fixer-upper can start at $250,000 and updated models can climb to well over $1 million.
Many celebrities of the era bought Alexander homes as their weekend getaways - among them were Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin, Dinah Shore and Peter Lawford. You can visit Alexander neighborhoods today and experience the unique beauty of mid century modern living: the developments include Twin Palms, Golf Club Estates, Araby Estates, Vista Las Palmas, and more.
