Frank Sinatra may have sung more about New York, but he spent much of his life in the desert…
He even built an estate in Palm Desert, where he lived for many years, and we can freely say that his villa is still admired today, so many years later, with its heliport and tennis court, at a cost of 4.25 million dollars.
The estate is known as Villa Maggio, and was named after Angelo Maggio, the character Sinatra played in the film From Here to Eternity, for which he won an Oscar. The property occupies an area of 7.5 hectares and is located on a hill above the city, although all local shops and restaurants are easily accessible.
The interiors have been carefully restored, but most of the original tiles and wallpaper, which Sinatra himself chose, still remain in place. There are three residences on the property, which are great for people with a large family. The main home has five bedrooms, the guest house has three and the pool lodge has one, making a total area of about 650 square meters.
Sinatra used this home as a place to rest, because it is so far from the city that it provided shelter and gave him the opportunity to organize numerous parties. With a tennis court and pool, the outdoor fun here is practically endless, especially if you add a built-in fireplace for a campfire, with plenty of space to enjoy and dine al-fresco.
In addition, potential future owners should know that this property can grow, because nearby properties are also available for purchase. See more photos in our gallery.
