Palm Springs

Araby Estate

Palm Springs, CA, United States
TEL: (760) 323-8628

Although a modest-looking hillside property, this three-level home in the Araby area has a celebrity history that includes former owners such as aviator Howard Hughes and producer Paul Keyes. When Hughes, also an engineer, owned the property, he installed foot-operated light switches in the floor and a stovetop element in a bathroom vanity. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the house brighten the mostly white interior, and each of the three bedrooms comes with an en-suite bathroom, flat-screen television, and king-size bed. Outdoors, the pool (with its diving board and cabana) and surrounding deck deliver 220-degree views of Palm Springs.

Insider Tip:

To continue the Howard Hughes theme, drive 10 minutes west to see the cacti and other desert flora at Moorten Botanical Gardens—founded by an actor and stand-in for Hughes.
