Splurge: Desert Chic Adobe Style Home That’s A Historic Landmark For $1.599M
First up, our jaw-dropping splurge! This one-of-a-kind adobe home is known as The Alice Lynch House. Originally built in 1922 by adobe contractor John Byers and designed by architect Harwood Hewitt, it’s a masterful work of art.
In fact, the home is a registered Historic Landmark and boasts impeccably designed interiors reimagined for modern living. You won’t be able to look away once you set eyes on this stunner!
Here, it’s all about attention to detail. This includes a spectacular front entry, private courtyard, and Desert Chic finishes inside and out. From the beamed ceiling to the brick fireplace, every inch catches the eye and draws you in.
The four-bedroom, two-full-and-one-half-bathroom home offers over 2,500 square feet, with a 1,000-square-foot courtyard that feels like a resort. Other highlights include original hardwood floors and a renovated kitchen with stucco cabinetry and mahogany butcher block counters.
As the listing says, “Live outside in the shadows of the magnificent cactus, enjoy showering al fresco under the the archways, and long tequila filled nights around the fire pit!” Get it before it’s gone!

Steal: Cool Craftsman Desert Chic Rock Garden, Plus Bonus Apartment For $960K
Now our steal may not be an adobe-style home but it’s Desert Chic from the outside. The rock garden in the front is a clear winner with low-maintenance plantings that pop against the home’s cheery green exterior.
Once inside, you’ll have a blank canvas to make your own. Whether you want to embrace the Desert Chic vibe or move in another direction, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers a contemporary feel but with craftsman charm.
What’s really unique about this property is that it has a main house and a bonus unit you can rent out. And it’s what you can’t see that counts.
This means new roof, plumbing, HVAC and more. The best part? It’s in closer proximity to University of Southern California and Starbucks is just around the corner.
