Jenson Button’s Palm Springs House is a slice of life in the slow lane
For a man who’s spent his life driving as fast as physics will allow, Jenson Button certainly knows how to slow down and ease off every once in a while, with his home in Palm Springs serving as his go-to spot for the past few years. While Button and his wife Brittny spend most of their time at their primary residence in Bel Air, the Palm Springs home was purchased as a project in 2020 and has since become a quiet slice of California calm.
Jenson and his wife Brittny recently opened their charming wooden doors to the good people of Architectural Summary, offering a glimpse into their newly remodeled Spanish Revival home. With views of the distant San Jacinto Mountains, Button’s Residence features a large outdoor garden and entertaining area, complete with swimming pool, outdoor kitchen or dining area, and guest house separated from the main residence.
The property benefits from its entire one-third acre block, with the main house offering an expansive three thousand square foot interior that includes a trio of bedrooms and bathrooms. However, when the property was first purchased in 2020, it looked very different from its current state of quiet elegance.

When the Buttons moved in, the living room and kitchen looked the same as when they had been fitted out in the 90s, which resulted in both rooms being completely redesigned. In the style of the true Spanish Revival home, much of the renovation benefits from classic design elements of white walls, exposed beam ceilings and a rustic approach to furnishings.
With raw wood making up much of the contrasting texture that breaks up the endless shades of bone, cream or off-white, you’ll find a beautiful natural wood grain on the doors and ceiling support beams, as well as on some furniture. All interior design for the property was handled by Brittny Button and her trusted confidante Tanya Stone, who runs her own interior design studio and worked closely with Brittny to ensure the home had exactly the right sensation.
Now that the house has been given a breath of fresh air, the Buttons have been enjoying the property ever since. For how long is unclear, however, as it was reported the couple put the property up for sale in January 2022 for just US$3.5million (Au$4.9million) after paying just US$925,000 (A$1.3 million) in 2020. Regardless of the home’s impending doom, it’s a tasteful renovation that shows even the world’s fastest drivers sometimes like to brake.
