An Historic Hacienda by Wallace Neff in Palm Springs
Let’s head two hours east of L.A. for a spell. You guessed it, Palm Springs. No doubt you’ve heard that this desert oasis has been transforming into one of the hottest real estate markets in Southern California. And the truth is, this new boom is really just beginning. One of the coolest things about this hot town is that it has an incredibly high concentration of outstanding architecture. And even though the town is widely known as a Mecca for midcentury modern enthusiasts thanks to the commercial strips lined with Googie inspired structures and the dazzling homes of Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and others, the town’s architectural roots lie in the Spanish Colonial style and there is no shortage of these gems that will drop your jaw to the Saltillo tiles beneath your feet. Liberace, Ann Miller, Sonny and Cher are among those that appreciated the warmth of and timelessness of these homes, so perfectly suited to desert living. And I am thrilled to bring to market a truly unique property with historic significance – The Bourne Residence, designed by Wallace Neff.
While Neff was alive, he was one of the most sought after architects of Hollywood’s biggest stars. And to this day the magic of his work is still appreciated by Tinseltown’s biggest names. Among those who’ve owned his homes are Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, Groucho Marx, Jack Lemon, Greta Garbo, Joan Bennett, Claudette Colbert, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, Barbra Streisand and Diane Keaton. Here’s your chance to add your name to a long list of proud owners of Neff designed homes.
