Bob Alexander’s (of famed Alexander construction company who tragically died in 1965 of a plane crash with most of his family into the Chocolate Gultch mountains in Indio en route to Pasadena) originally built home for himself, in Vista Las Palmas, eventually leased by Elvis for 1 year in 1966 for a wopping 21,000, hits the market today at 9.5M;) What a piece of PS history, empty lot behind the property which sold sometime in the last 2 years used to be where Elvis would sneak into his home to avoid paparazzi ;) So much history, amazing home with tennis court, endless possibilities.

: In 1966 this historic mid-century estate was leased to Elvis Presley where he & Priscilla spent their honeymoon; Lisa Marie was born 9 months later. This iconic modernist estate was designed in 4 perfect circles, on 3 levels, incorporating glass & peanut brittle stonework for indoor-outdoor living. The home features 4 bedrooms & 5 baths. Nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, the honeymoon suite offers a panoramic view of the Santa Rosa Mountains & the Coachella Valley. The estate has been restored to its 1960s splendor & features art deco design & furnishings throughout. The secluded grounds include a pool, stage, private garden, tennis court, & fruit orchard. In 1962 Look Magazine featured the estate calling it “The House of Tomorrow”. Several movies have been filmed at the estate including “Elvis & Me” & “Elvis by the Presleys”. This historic mid-century masterpiece is 10 minutes from Palm Springs International Airport & 5 minutes from downtown.
