Palm Springs has always been a great destination for any number of reasons including Coachella, Palm Springs Modernism Week, Dinah Shore Weekend, the White Party, Stagecoach Music Festival and the Palm Springs International Film Festival. The endless sunshine, dry heat, mountains and architecture, just adds to the ongoing list. But if you haven’t been there, trust us, it’s a great spot, unless you hate sunshine. And so for those of us who love that lifestyle, it just got a little cozier.
Thanks to the renowned architect Donald Wexler who built this sexy pad in 1964, living in architectural bliss has just been made available thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio. Originally the home to the late singer, turned talk show host Dinah Shore, 432 Hermosa has been hidden within Old Las Palmas, Palm Springs, which is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the area. Other neighborhood guests have included vacation homes owned by Hollywood celebrities, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Liberace and Elvis Presley.
The house is a furnished Mid-Century, which is pure Southern California, the birthplace of the progressive design movement. You’ll enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows throughout and no need to worry about space, because the living room has plenty of seating, a fireplace, a grand piano and cocktail bar.
The compound has 1.3-acres and comes with 6 bedrooms, 7 1/2 baths, a heated Pool and Spa along with a casita adjacent to the tennis court with clusters of palm trees and the San Jacinto Mountains in the near distance.
Close to any number of fine dining restaurants, clubs, live theater, art galleries, and Palm Canyon Drive, you can rent 432 Hermosa for $4,500 a night. If you do, don’t’ forget to invite us for drinks.
