Property Description

Now offering the rare opportunity to own a piece of Palm Springs history with one of the most famous and architecturally significant homes in town: The Lawford-Kennedy Estate. Nestled on a large corner lot with a private driveway, electric gate, and covered carport, this celebrity home was visited by some of the largest figures throughout the 50s and 60s such as Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, the Kennedys, and Marilyn Monroe. Behind the tall hedges, architect William Krisel employs his famous butterfly roofline design featuring numerous clerestory windows giving light to a clean, minimalist interior. Each room incorporates large sliding glass doors which allow for lots of natural light to majestically fill the entirety of the space. A newly updated modern open kitchen and a recently restored fourth bedroom compliment the large open living space fronted with a stunning sunken living area just inside the main entrance. Following the row of atrium windows, you’ll be greeted with a large living room facing the classically designed Palm Springs pool, an open and pristine backyard, and immaculate mountain views. Inside the bright master suite, you’ll find floor to ceiling Fleetwood sliders that bring the outside in, as well as a large sunken roman tub in the oversized master bathroom. This home has the location and the history, and now just needs your personal touch to create your own piece of classic Palm Springs history.
