Glamour Grows in the Desert: Magda and Zsa Zsa Gabor’s Pink Former Palm Springs Estate Seeks $3.8M

With its pink exterior, this Palm Springs home is as flamboyant and iconic in the balmy area as its previous owners. Socialite sisters Magda and Zsa Zsa Gabor lived here off and on at separate times for over 30 years. Now, the current owners are selling the late sisters’ former Hollywood Regency-style paradise for $3.8 million.

Magda and Zsa Zsa made up two-thirds of the Gabor sisters, with the third being Eva Gabor. And, they all spent significant time in the balmy and vibrant area. In 1996, Palm Springs Life printed that the desert had seen the sisters “through a few career moves, 22 husbands (counting George Sanders twice, since he married two of them), numerous headlines and countless ball gowns.”

This home, in particular, still exudes Gabor glamour and taste. The current owners, internationally-known designer Tracy Turco and real estate developer Jerry Turco, maintained the pair’s fanciful vision and kept much of the sisters’ furnishings—which are negotiable in the sale. Many of the interior choices were hand-picked by the Gabors and it was important to the sellers to preserve them.

With three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,441 square feet, the home might seem modest in size for such a flashy family. The primary bedroom wing, however, boasts a separate makeup room, dressing room, and a luxurious bathroom. After all, the famous sisters were “always beautifully costumed, coiffed, manicured and jeweled,” according to Palm Springs Life.

Panoramic views make for the perfect backdrop while enjoying the mosaic tile pool, patio, and fire pit. Plus, it’s an ideal secluded space to host legendary get-togethers to rival those of the famous socialites. “The social season in Palm Springs without the Gabors would have been like an arboretum without its birds of paradise,” the 1996 Palm Springs Life article says.
