The Desert Sun’s Denise Goolsby writes in a recent article that Albert Frey designed modest, flat-roofed, rectangular home featuring a long deck with yellow-colored siding that sits above the Glory to God Ministries church on Highway 111 is being offered for sale. The home, which is referred to as the “Cree House II”, was originally commissioned by Palm Springs Realtor and community leader Raymond Cree. It’s also referred to as the Forgotten Frey due to it’s long-term single-family ownership. This home was restored by owner Sam Harris and designer and craftsman John Vugrin, who took painstaking efforts to preserve all of the original building materials including exterior and interior wall panels, fluted fiberglass deck pieces, kitchen appliances and cabinets, and glass shower door. The restored home was finally revealed to the public, with very positive response, during Modernism Week 2019. The home, a 1,124 square foot, one bedroom, two bathroom home, was built in 1955 by Palm Springs contractor Raymond Sorum. It sits on a rectangular 8.28 acre lot. The home, located at 67389 East Palm Canyon Drive in Cathedral City, came on the market on March 7th and is listed at $2.5 million.
