First time on the market in over 40 years. An island parcel with no adjoining neighbors built on almost two acres in 1931 by George Heigho, Invernada or Winter House is one of Palm Springs best examples of Spanish Revival Architecture, and considered to be one of the most significant properties in Palm Springs. In 1946 Tillie Lewis purchased Invernada, she was considered to be the first female Captain of Industry. The Invernada estate was acquired by the current owner in 1978. Constructed with the finest materials and techniques of the day, Invernada has survived with the majority of its original details and floor plan intact. The main residence of the estate is more than 6000 SF. The property also includes a resort-sized pool, guest suites, a 3-car garage, and several out buildings. The 1700 SF guest house was built in the 50s to look like Spanish on the exterior, but the interior is Mid-Century Modern at its finest. Each of the seven baths in the main house boasts its original tile and fixtures. The 50 FT long living room features numerous original steel framed French doors on each side offering exceptional views of the garden, pool, and mountains. Outstanding wrought iron fixtures compliment the vintage décor. Class 1 Historical Site. Attributed to William Charles Tanner Architect of the O'Donnell House.
