Historic mid-century masterpiece near art museum
8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 6.5 bathrooms
In 1947, Frank Sinatra commissioned legendary Palm Springs architect, E. Stewart Williams, to build Twin Palms, a sprawling, four-bedroom, mid-century masterpiece. Composing and carousing were both on the menu during Ol’ Blue Eyes’ tenure, and this historical building still retains its classic Hollywood charm, while recent upgrades have introduced luxurious, contemporary amenities.
Spend easy afternoons reclined in a chaise longue around the terrace. You’ll swear you can still hear some of that old ring-a-ding-ding as you drift along in the piano-shaped pool. Take shelter from the mid-afternoon sun in the the well-equipped pool house, where you’ll find a cozy lounge set, full changing cabanas, kitchenette and wet bar. At dusk, fire up the barbecue and grill fresh fare as the sun sets over the mountains.
An abundance of floor-to-ceiling windows shed light on the spectacular, mid-century interior. Many of Sinatra’s original touches can still be found, like a vintage audio system, while the home’s newer furnishings and accessories were hand-picked with respect to the original style. Rusty hues and warm woods were typical of that era, still adorn the fine St. Charles cabinets, stone floor tiles, and the living room’s wraparound sofa. A piano is found in the great room, and the whole house is wired with the latest electronics. In the gourmet kitchen, you’ll love creating feasts on high-end Viking appliances, which have been giving a retro makeover. The modern dining table enjoys a lovely terrace view.
All four bedrooms are one-of-a-kind. The Master bedroom is wrapped on two sides by sliding doors to the terrace, and a beautiful masonry fireplace sits at the foot of the King bed. The second bedroom also has quick access to the terrace and its own fireplace. The third bedroom is brightly lit, with a Queen bed and memorabilia hanging on the walls. The final room is a tropical oasis that looks out to the garden. All bedrooms are air conditioned and feature televisions, plus well-appointed en-suites.
You may never want to step out of Frank’s dream house, but when you do, there’s so much to discover in Palm Springs. Cruise down Palm Canyon Drive where you’ll find everything from upscale shops to fine dining, art galleries to vibrant nightlife and more. Appreciate your natural surroundings on one of Palm Springs’ many golf courses or head out to Joshua Tree National Park to experience the beauty of the desert.
