An Elvis Presley-Approved Midcentury Palm Springs Home Lists for $5.6M
Dubbed "Elvis’ Honeymoon Hideaway," the singer and his wife leased the groovy home for a year.
Whether you’re a longtime lover of his music or a more recent fan of Baz Luhrmann’s biopic, Elvis Presley is certainly a household name. As one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, the star received nicknames including the “King of Rock and Roll” and “The Hillbilly Cat,” among others. It would only be right if one of his previous properties had just as many nicknames—one of them being the “House of Tomorrow,” referring to its technological advancements at the time. The circa-1960 Palm Springs home is now on the market asking $5.6M.
Although Presley and his wife, Priscilla, only leased the home for a year starting in 1966 for $21,000, it was still dubbed “Elvis’ Honeymoon Hideaway.” The couple was reportedly set to wed here, but when the press found out, they jetted to Sin City. If only the ‘Viva Las Vegas’ singer knew he would later have lookalikes officiating weddings. Presley returned to the Palm Springs home for four days before leaving to shoot a movie.
In total, the property holds four bedrooms and five bathrooms, with the luxurious primary suite capturing panoramic views of the Palm Springs vistas. All bedrooms include their own bathrooms, while two even open out onto a terrace. Speaking of the backyard, this home has a large pool, as well as ample outdoor entertaining space for al fresco dining.
Embodying all facets of the midcentury style, the home’s aerodynamic design includes angular ceilings, loads of light, and beautiful rock installations all around. Floating features are the name of the game here, from its hanging fireplace hearth, similar stovetop hood, and a raised dining platform.
