Two decades after he had E. Stewart Williams design him the swinging Twin Palms house in Palm Springs, Frank Sinatra apparently needed to get away from it all–in 1967 he built the Villa Maggio (named for his character in From Here to Eternity) high above the Coachella Valley. The 10-acre property hosts three buildings designed by Ross Patton in a “rustic, chalet design” that still “retains much of the colorful, late-1960s eclecticism that followed the subdued, minimalist aesthetic of postwar America.” The main house has three bedrooms and six bathrooms; a guesthouse has three bedrooms and five bathrooms; and the pool house has two bathrooms and two saunas. There’s also a pool and tennis court. Asking price is $3.995 million. · The Frank Sinatra Residence, 1967 [Crosby Doe] · Frank Sinatra’s Old ‘Villa Maggio’ Party Pad Hits the Market [Curbed National]
