Howard Hughes’ home in Palm Springs is finally up for grabs.
When it comes to desert paradises in the United States, Palm Springs, California is pretty much the ultimate private locale. Gays and celebrities have always flocked to Palm Springs for the quiet atmosphere, and sophisticated mid-century modern aesthetic that can be seen in everything from the architecture to home décor.
It’s no wonder that billionaire mogul and aviator Howard Hughes, who was well known as reclusive, chose to live out in the desert.
The house, located on Rim Road was built in 1957, and originally owned by Eva Gabor. It includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms at 2,400 square feet, and sits at the base of a mountain, so it features both mountain and valley views through walls made completely of glass. The three story home has a guest bedroom suite with fireplace, and multiple points of access to the outside deck, featuring an outdoor spa, patio, hammock area, covered cabana and pool.
The coolest thing about the home is that it still retains some original features and details such as a 1950s kitchen with mint green oven and cooktops, and whitewashed brick walls, which are indicative of many Palm Springs homes.
Anyone who has an appreciation for old Hollywood glamour or escaping to the tranquility of the desert would love this piece of Hollywood history. The home is on the market for $1,200,000.via ]
