Commissioned by Old Blue Eyes himself in 1967, this Palm Desert compound was built to entertain Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack pals and other celebs, with a lighted pool/spa, tennis courts, parking for up to 24 cars, and a helipad. The exterior of the main house on the five-acre property is a mix of native stone and shingles, while the interior is due for a light update (just rip up that baby-food-green carpet and everything will be fine), but it really nails the country lodge feel, incorporating five stone fireplaces, hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and a first-floor deck protected by the cabin's massive eaves.
Named the Villa Maggio, after Sinatra's From Here to Eternity character, the property also includes a doomsday-prepped, two-story, three-bedroom guest house that has "its own generator, water tower, and water well." The pool house has a master suite, two bathrooms, a stone fireplace, two saunas, and a kitchenette.
Frank Sinatra's desert oasis last went up for sale about three years ago; it's back now, again asking $3.95 million.
