Twin Palms Palm Springs
This mid-century estate previously owned by Frank Sinatra is named after the twin palms adjacent to the grand-piano-shaped pool. Built in 1947 in the Movie Colony neighborhood, the 4,500 square-foot house is now a vacation rental for large groups and has four bedrooms and seven bathrooms with original fixtures. According to Palm Springs lore, a crack in a bathroom sink resulted when Sinatra threw a champagne bottle while quarreling with Ava Gardner. Period furnishings and Rat Pack memorabilia decorate the home. Sinatra’s recording system is installed inside an armoire in the shag-carpeted living room. A lotus-flower-chandelier hangs over the glass-walled dining area, which opens to the poolside patio with San Jacinto Mountain views.
