I have what could be called a little obsession with Cary Grant. When I’m having a bad day, there’s nothing like watching one of his comedies to cheer me up. So when I saw that his former home in Palm Springs, California, was on the market, I had to check it out!
Cary Grant Lived Here
The 1927 Spanish-style house sits on 1.54 acres and was Grant’s Hollywood hideaway for 20 years.
The Great Room features a 40-ft vaulted ceiling:
Cary Grant’s daughter Jennifer (whose mother is Dyan Cannon) wrote a book about her famously private dad.
He retired from acting at the age of 62 to focus on being a father.
If you read Rob Lowe’s memoir, he has a great story about what it was like to date Cary Grant’s daughter.
The guest wing was designed by Wallace Neff, who was also responsible for Reese’s country house.
I’m loving the vintage green tile in this bathroom:
The house has 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and 5 fireplaces.
Want it? The asking price for this piece of movie-star history is $2.9 million. For more photos and information, check Zillow.
