About KUD
A Bit of Background

Based in Palm Springs, California, the hotbed for all that is mid century, KUD Properties uses its knowledge, creativity, and determination to impress upon its clients that anything is possible with diligence and the right frame of mind. KUD Properties offers a unique perspective for home owners and buyers of Coachella Valley Real Estate. Using it’s extensive experience in the implementation, design and remodeling of significant architecture, the KUD team can provide unparalleled advice and strategy to its clients. From guiding buyers with potential construction costs to advising sellers with on the ground market knowledge.

Recently, KUD Properties has completed multiple projects from William Krisel, Donald Wexler, William Cody, and E. Stewart Williams; all well noted and celebrated architects from the mid century movement. Each sale or remodel takes on its own experience and process of “re-living” the home from the architect’s point of view. The challenge is how it can be influenced to foster new technology and design while enhancing the original intent. The projects vary from a “period” renovation to a modernization of technology and systems; each its own individual masterpiece. Some homes require a furniture and layout facelift to create a better environment to sell your home.

As developer of the exclusive Desert Eichler homes, KUD Properties is bringing original Eichler homes with updated plans for modern day living for the first time in Palm Springs.

Produced and presented by Modernism Week and KUD Properties, a Palm Desert-based real estate and property development company, this first-time tour of midcentury modern and “new century modern” homes will take in the beautiful neighborhoods of South Palm Desert. Until now, many of these properties have been the best-kept secret in the greater Palm Springs area.

The self-driving tour of 5-6 residences will feature a variety of neighborhoods and modern architectural styles. You’ll have exclusive interior access to several fabulous homes never before seen by the public. Many of the Desert Modernist architects were working on residential projects simultaneously in Palm Desert and Palm Springs in the 1950s-60s, though Palm Desert remains largely undiscovered in the midcentury modern revival of the Palm Springs area. Experience custom designed homes by some of the desert’s master architects as well as newly-discovered treasures that should be on your design radar.

The tour will be self-guided throughout South Palm Desert, a short 20-minute drive from downtown Palm Springs. A keepsake tour map and program is included. This event is generously produced and sponsored by KUD Properties to benefit Modernism Week’s education, preservation and scholarship programs.
