Designed by modernist architect Stan Sackley in 1965 and renovated, the linear 3,296-square-foot house — known as the James M. Hollowell Residence after its original owner, an attorney — sits on a quarter-acre lot.

The home has two bedrooms suites, a designated wet bar and a large open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen with a door that leads to an outdoor barbecue area. There’s also a family room.

These public spaces come into view from the foyer, along with architectural details.

Cedar-planks cover the ceiling. The floors are cement. fireplaces are set into teak walls. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls frame the backyard, with its covered patio, spa and swimming pool.

Bedrooms are on opposite ends of the house. The largest of these is the master suite, which contains a large bedroom with a built-in seating niche, fireplace and office workspace.

The desk is tucked behind the freestanding headboard.

Other features of the master suite include a walk-in closet and a spa-like bathroom with glass doors that when opened transform the indoor shower into an outdoor one.

The property is in Deepwell Estates, a neighborhood long popular with the rich and famous. Comedian Jerry Lewis once owned the modern ranch-style home next door that sold in 2017 for $1.3 million, property records show.

Records also show the Sackley design last fetched $935,000 in 2012.

Jesse Huskey and Romina Gil De Matos of Compass are the listing agents.

Sackley is among Palm Springs’ lesser-known modernists. He studied architecture at USC. With his degree in hand, Sackley opened up a practice in the desert community.
