While most homes in Palm Springs would not conjure up thoughts of Greece, the residence at 400 West Camino Alturas just might. Known as The Santorini House, the eccentric house was designed in 1977 by William Nicholson, the Bay Area architect who also completed the notorious Flintstone House a year prior.
The Grecian–inspired dwelling sits perched behind a gated entrance at one of the highest points in the mesa. Set against the monochromatic desert landscape, the whitewashed stucco facade and royal-blue trim instantly catch one’s attention, evoking a traditional Santorini-style residence.
Measuring approximately 3,000 square feet, the four-bedroom, three-bath retreat was recently remodeled and now features spacious living spaces along with a new kitchen. Skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate the all-white interior while a top floor, open-air sitting room captures picturesque views—albeit the desert in place of the sea. Now, for the first time in over 35 years, the current owners are seeking a new buyer to enjoy the property, which is currently listed for $2,975,000.
