Welcome to Deepwell

A Distinctive Palm Springs Neighborhood

Deepwell is more than just a neighborhood; it's a vibrant community where many residents choose to live year-round, drawn by both the social vibrancy and the stunning environment. The architecture here is a showcase of the 1950s and '60s, featuring California ranch-style homes alongside those with sleek mid century modern designs. These homes, often highlighted by artful, drought-tolerant landscaping, stand open and inviting, rarely hidden behind hedges.
Nestled in the heart of South Palm Springs, the Deepwell neighborhood boasts a rich history that dates back to 1926. It was then that scientist Henry Pearson, driven by curiosity, drilled what became the deepest well in the Coachella Valley, reaching over 630 feet. This pioneering spirit continued when, two years later, investor Charles Doyle transformed a nearby apricot farm into the Deep Well Guest Ranch, giving the area its lasting name.
Prominent architects like Jim Jennings and icons such as Donald Wexler, William Krisel, William Cody, and Stan Sackley have left their mark here, creating a blend of historical charm and modern minimalism in steel, glass, and concrete. Celebrities like Loretta Young, Jerry Lewis, William Holden, Marjorie Main, and Tippi Hedren have also called Deepwell home, adding a touch of star-studded history.
The Deepwell Estates Neighborhood Organization (DENO), one of Palm Springs' oldest, fosters a close-knit community spirit through various events, from social gatherings to garden walks. This makes Deepwell a lively hub for indoor-outdoor living, appealing to bicyclists, joggers, and pet owners alike.
Located conveniently with easy access to downtown and the wider valley, Deepwell offers an unparalleled blend of historical depth, architectural beauty, and community warmth in Palm Springs.
