Elvis lives! Well, his spirit lives on, anyway, in this groovy mid-century modern house for sale in Palm Springs. He and Priscilla lived here for a while after their wedding in ’67, so it’s been dubbed their “Honeymoon Hideaway.”
Elvis & Priscilla’s Place in Palm Springs
The Sotheby’s listing says:
The world knows this wonderful, Mid-Century estate as the Elvis Presley Honeymoon Hideaway. This iconic treasure was designed by the famous modernist architect William Krisel and built by the renowned custom home builder of the era, Robert Alexander in 1962.
“Situated to offer majestic views of the San Jacinto Mountains and Coachella Valley, the extensive use of glass and custom stonework throughout make for great indoor and outdoor living.”
“Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac, enjoy the pool, tennis court, garden and grounds in complete privacy. The large round main living room, perfect for entertaining is the epitome of mid-century modernism and is just plain sexy.”
