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.
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.
