The William Burgess House stands as a masterpiece of architectural brilliance in the heart of Palm Springs, a city synonymous with Mid-Century Modern architecture and a haven for design enthusiasts. Also known as Bougain Villa, the stunning residence has made its debut in the market for the first time since its construction.

Commissioned in 1957 by William and Clara Burgess, mid-century architect Hugh Kaptur created a luxurious modern villa offering breathtaking views of its surroundings. The original owner commissioned architect Albert Frey to renovate the villa in the 1980s. During the renovation process, Frey expanded the square footage of the villa and added a mirrored guest house, seamlessly blending the old with the new.
