You Can Now Move Into Frank Sinatra’s Former Home—For US$4.25 Million
Frank Sinatra’s former desert hideaway has officially hit the market this week. Designed and built in 1970 by the musician himself, the Palm Desert abode, called Villa Maggio, is expected to sell for about US$4.25 million.
Perched high above Palm Desert, the lair-like compound is secluded and impressively quiet—in fact, it’s believed that Sinatra’s hit song, “Let’s Get Away From It All” is what inspired such a private retreat, according to the property listing.
The mid-century mountain retreat features a five-bedroom main house with 5.5 bathrooms, a self-sufficient three-bedroom guest home across the lot, as well as a one-bedroom pool house.
In terms of amenities, the sprawling compound includes a resort-style pool, an exterior gathering area, a lighted tennis court, a helipad, and parking for up to 24 cars—let’s just say there’s more than enough space to entertain friends and family in true Sinatra style.
Considered to be one of Sinatra’s favourite residences, the isolated estate also features incredible mountain views—with 360-degree sunrise and sunset mountain valley light shows that offer an otherworldly natural backdrop that is sure to impress.
The listing also points out that, despite being a truly isolated retreat, the estate is just twenty minutes away from Palm Desert and El Paseo luxury shops and restaurants while the Palm Springs International Airport is just 26 miles away (and easily accessible by helicopter).
