The Moncrief Residence was created by William Cody AIA at Thunderbird North in Rancho Mirage, circa 1957. While Cody was known for his use of glass and steel and creating a seamless transition to the outside, he did treat each project on a very individual basis and this masterpiece possess all of those attributes. Just over 5k square feet, the current owners did extensive updating at various times from 2013 – 2016. The Moncrief Residence was also a featured on the 2018 Modernism Tour and was a sold out event and you can see why. Cody’s extensive use of glass accentuates the thoughtful professional design of the gardens and atriums creating multiple seating vignettes and while its great to have an architectural home people want creature comforts of today. As you tour the property you will see the updated kitchen with separate butlers pantry, updated and large baths as well as restored and replaced use of terrazzo flooring coupled with newer tile flooring and carpeting in some areas.
