Fly me to the moon — or to Palm Desert, California!

Twenty-four years after his death, the late Frank Sinatra's sprawling California mountain estate has hit the market for a cool $4.25 million, per its listing by Markus Canter and Cristie St. James of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.

Spread across more than 7 acres above the Coachella Valley, the property (dubbed "Villa Maggio" by the singer) boasts nine bedrooms and 12 and a half bathrooms among its multiple dwellings, including five bedrooms in the main house, three in the guest house and one in the pool house.

It's also equipped with various amenities including a vast pool, a helipad, a tennis court, parking for 20 vehicles and nine fireplaces.

Other features include a lounge with a custom bar, an office, a gym, library, home theater, media room and art studio.

Purchased by Sinatra in 1967 and completed in 1970, the West Coast retreat is a place that feels removed while still having the convenience of proximity to the city's shops and eateries 20 minutes down the mountain.

"While you feel as if you're miles away, everything you need is easily and quickly accessible," Canter says in the listing.

The home was donated to Loyola Marymount University before eventually being sold to a private buyer, after Sinatra initially lived there for 14 years with his wife, Barbara.
