Kucharo's Xanadu on the Modern Phoenix Home Tour of Marion Estates in 2018A fellow in Palm Springs mentioned to us years ago that there were Krisel homes in Phoenix. It took us years to authenticate them through a trip to view his blueprints at the Getty Archive in person! Two of the four homes on this street are in fairly original condition and two have changed over the years.
