Via Jacques’ builder, Jack Meiselman, built affordable mid-twentieth-century modern homes in Palm Springs California during the years of 1959-1960. Meiselman used post and beam construction, with tongue and groove ceilings, and architecturally sculpted concrete block as shade blocks and as a design element. His houses feature large walls of glass that overlook the pool or the beautiful mountain backdrops in Palm Springs.
Via Jacques (Jack Meiselman’s namesake street!) was completely renovated in 2013. While preserving many of the beautiful architectural details of the original mid-century design like clerestory windows and vaulted ceilings common to the Palm Springs modern movement, Via Jacques now has all of the conveniences of today: comfortable common spaces, modern bathrooms, a working fireplace, indoor stereo system, a large pool with built-in spa and an outdoor space that completes a mid-century architects’ dream of true indoor/outdoor living.
Via Jacques offers beautiful unobstructed views of the San Jacinto mountains from the private and spacious fully fenced back yard with citrus and palm trees, salt water pool, built-in spa, gas barbeque and fire pit. A covered patio within full sight of the large swimming pool spans the length of the house for shaded outdoor enjoyment.
