Historic Movie Colony Tennis Court Estate. This stately 1920s Spanish hacienda was designed by prominent architects Garrett Van Pelt and George Lind. Available for the first time in nearly 50 years, this grand estate was originally owned by Philip L. Boyd, the first mayor of Palm Springs. Lovingly maintained over the years, the seven-bedroom, seven-bath home is rich in character and authentic period details, including built-ins, tile and hardwood floors, beamed ceilings and elegant ironwork. The expansive main level features three fireplaces and many generously sized rooms, including the living room, dining room, family room, library, two kitchens, and most notably, The Frank Sinatra Room, named after the property's most famous guest. In fact, Sinatra's 60th birthday party was held here. The Sinatra Room has a wonderful wet bar and can be an optional ground level owner's suite, game room or den. The second level offers the primary bedroom retreat with a gorgeously tiled bathroom, fabulous dressing room, and balcony with stunning unobstructed views of the San Jacinto Mountains. Situated on over an acre on a street-to-street lot, the manicured park-like grounds are gated, walled and hedged for ultimate privacy. An entertainer's dream, the property features a regulation size north/south tennis court, pool, spa, BBQ grilling station, and covered patio with outdoor fireplace, hidden wet bar and misting system. There is plenty of parking with a circular driveway, porte-cochere and two-car garage. Basement for storage or a possible wine cellar. Ideal for vacation rental or special events, this central location is a short walk to popular restaurants, boutiques, the Uptown Design District, Desert Regional Medical Center and Ruth Hardy Park. Truly an extraordinary opportunity to acquire one of Palm Springs' most significant and beautiful estates.
