Homestead Modern No. 1, the first of a new line of unique homes, is located in Pioneertown, the quirky Mojave Desert community. Pioneertown was built by the Hollywood studios after World War II and today is known as much for its spectacular high desert scenery and noted musical roadhouse Pappy & Harriet’s as it is for its movie and TV heritage.
Homestead Modern No. 1 features a one-bedroom, one-bath "main" house with a kitchen, living and dining area and a separate one-bedroom, one-bath detached casita. Both the main house and the casita offer private outdoor showers as well as indoor showers. Each bedroom has a California king bed. Both structures are steel framed and have lots of glass. They were designed by architect Andreas M. Larisch.
The property also offers a third guest space in a tricked-out vintage travel trailer with a queen bed and complete bath. We took a 28-foot 1973 Holiday Rambler and gutted it to create a super comfy all-new living space that includes a bedroom with a queen bed, full bathroom and fully-functional hot water, heating, and air conditioning.
