JUST LISTED | FRANK SINATRA'S DESERT HIDEAWAY - "VILLA MAGGIO” as seen in the news... Bloomberg | Los Angeles Times "Hot Property" | Forbes | Curbed LA | New York Post | The Desert Sun | Palm Springs Life | ABC News | NBC News

St. James + Canter Luxury Real Estate Presents this opportunity to OWN A PIECE OF AMERICA HISTORY Resting high above the Coachella Valley, Palm Desert and Palm Springs, Villa Maggio offers a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an iconic and treasured estate that Frank Sinatra personally helped design and build. Panoramic views of the mountains and valleys are on full display throughout this secluded and private escape, which includes 3 buildings, a resort-style pool, a lighted tennis court and helipad, parking for a few dozen cars and approximately 7.5 acres of land.
Sinatra had a dual purpose in the design of the estate: a desire to escape the oppressive heat of the desert valley below and a need to provide his friends, which included traveling dignitaries, sports stars, elite power players and members of the Rat Pack, with the ultimate in luxury and comfort as well as the utmost in privacy and security.

The 4,300 foot elevation provides a more comfortable and temperate climate than the desert valley below, and the skies are cloudless most days. As a result, the surrounding mountainsides, national monuments and cityscapes are unobstructed and totally surreal as a backdrop for the estate, which encompasses 6,428 square feet of interior space.

A masterpiece with a rustic, Mid Century-Lodge style design, the estate features a five bedroom main house with five and a half bathrooms, a guest home with a separate generator, well and water tower, and a pool house that was ahead of its time in its planning, design and execution. Warmed by a massive stone fireplace, the pool house includes two bedrooms and two saunas, a kitchenette and a built-in fire pit with a large zone for entertaining.
