Elvis's Palm Springs House of Tomorrow Asking $9.5 Million

New, 9 comments


The modernist Palm Springs house where Elvis and Priscilla Presley spent their honeymoon has hit the market, and it's riding that history for all it's worth. We've got to hand it to Elvis: This is a good choice for a post-nuptial destination. The four-bedroom, five-bathroom estate has a fireplace, a nicely-secluded backyard with a pool, a private garden, and a master suite that offers up panoramic views of the local mountain ranges. The brokerbabble divulges that Lisa Marie Presley was born nine months after the newlyweds holed up here, so it did indeed prove to be effectively romantic. With all that Elvis history, it would have been a shame not to turn this mid-century modern house into an unofficial Elvis museum. As can be seen from the listing photos, that's been done: the walls and shelves are dotted with pictures and golden statuettes of Elvis—even his original lease for the house has been saved and framed. Celebrity connections aside, the house, designed as a series of concentric circles on three levels, under a roof that can only be described as "batwing-style," is a showstopper. (In 1962, Look magazine called it "The House of Tomorrow.") Asking price is $9.5 million.
