    A house in California for $115,000!? Wow! This place has a lot of potential both inside and outside. The first thing I’d do is get rid of all the weird built ins/wood posts/shelving units(?) and clean up the outdoor space. This would be a fun project house.

      The minute someone says “project house” you know they are going to destroy much of what makes it unique, quirky and original.

        That was exactly what I was thinking.

        Don’t assume anything. I have a history of restoring houses. My particular aim would be cleaning up and decorating.
        an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned and designed to achieve a particular aim.
        “a research project”

          In your case, I stand corrected. I have seen “project” used as a nice term for ruin/obliterate/turn into something bland so many times that the word scares me!

    I love it as is. I can adapt to the weirdness, but would hate to see someone turn it into a “normal” space. Load it with art, mcm abstract furniture, a hot tub and it is good to go. Does anyone know where I put my beads and bell bottoms?

    It would be fun to make this quirky place my home. I enjoyed the memories it brought back as I spent many family vacations and weekend trips in Desert Hot Springs in the 60’s. My parents thought it therapeutic to soak in the hot springs.

    I love it. Very unique.

    I know this neighborhood, lived there. This house used to look so much better. At that price it won’t last. DHS is a new legal commercial weed city. It’s in Coachella Valley ie coachellafest. It gets really hot there in the summer 120.

    Yeah – coooool! Super groovy columnar gas heater is a + in my weird appliances book.

    There is most likely stained and scored concrete under all that – – tile – -. Cant count how many times I’ve seen that done. A real loss.

    Actually there is another house on the top of the hill I got this one mixed up with. Nonak is right the Spa hotel has the best pools. DHS isn’t fancy but since it’s across the fwy from Palm Springs this is an amazing investment opportunity

    Love this! It is unique! You could make another room within

    This property appeared here in the December 28 link exchange. I saw it on the 30th and was fascinated. Stone cottages always grab my interest and this one, especially the outside, kept me staring at it entranced for several minutes before leaving a comment. I bet this has a history and I’d love to know about it!!!

    I can envision turning this into a very cool bar and lounge!

    That stone will help keep the house cooler in summer besides looking amazing. I love older stone homes. I would love to see the built-ins up close. Huge square footage for a one bedroom place. Hopefully the right kind of buyer gets it and not someone who will destroy the uniqueness.

    I’d buy this place just for the outdoor stonework and built-in benches. This could be a beautiful garden.

    I felt as if I’d fallen into the rabbit hole and found I wanted to stay.

    What an awesome and interesting house. A little yard work and moving the washer inside (I don’t need a dryer in the CA heat)I’d be good to go!

    Wonder what it looked like in the 40’s before the disco era remodel. The floor tile and shiny hearth tile need to go. I kept expecting a disco ball and tiki bar to show up.
