Frank Sinatra House

Mid-century/desert modern houses

Designed in 1947 by noted modernist architect E. Stewart Williams, The Frank Sinatra House set the bar in Palm Springs for sophisticated yet cool & casual modern living.

Sinatra’s weekend desert retreat, however, was originally to have been a Georgian-style mansion if he’d had his way. Fortunately Williams’ concept for using non-traditional building materials with clean lines and open living spaces won over “old blue eyes” and the rest is history …  Sinatra and his pals brought Hollywood glamour and allure to Palm Springs which helped put the city on the proverbial map.

The Sinatra House is not very visible from street side but currently belongs to a private company that rents it out for events, photo shoots and even vacation rentals! Check out their website, here, and make this “rat pack” hang-out your own… at least for a long weekend!

Fun Fact: The Sinatra House is also known as “Twin Palms” because of the two lone palm tress on the property and is usually open for tours during Modernism Week.
