At the beginning of the 1950’s, Frank Sinatra was soon to embark on the second act of his legendary career. After falling out of favour with teenagers with the coming of Elvis and rock n’ roll, Sinatra was considered part of a bygone era.
But he re-emerged in 1953 with the role of Maggio in ‘From Here to Eternity’ and won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. Add on top of that a succession of successful albums with a new label in Capitol Records and The Chairman of the Board was back on top.
It was during this comeback that Sinatra’s sanctuary from the limelight was his house in Palm Springs, known today as Twin Palms. He commissioned the house to be designed by E. Stewart Williams where he lived from its completion in 1947 to 1954, and sold the house in 1957. It is here that he spent his much of his tumultuous marriage with Ava Gardner.
Today, you can take advantage of this classic, mid-century masterpiece. The property is available for rental for vacations, events, dinners and even photoshoots and filming. The house is 4,500 square fee with 4 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and other more updated modern luxuries. It is a historic landmark as an iconic example of desert modernism. With it’s clean, flat and modern design, the house includes a piano shaped swimming pool with shadows that emulate the instrument’s keys.
Named after the two palm trees on the property, the house is available for rent for approximately $3,000 per night.
