Live Like A Star: Elvis Presley

Who doesn't want to live in Elivs's house. you can.  The historic mid-century iconic Palm Springs estate known as the Elvis Presley Honeymoon Hideaway is for sale again.

Designed by the famous modernist architect William Krisel and built in 1962 by the renowned custom home builder of the era Robert Alexander, the home, virtuly unchanged, sits quietly at the end of a cul-de-sac, with complete privacy, an oversized pool, a tennis court, and gorgeous scenery of the San Jacinto Mountains and Coachella Valley.

Dubbed the “House of Tomorrow” by Look Magazine in 1962, the house is most famous as the spot where Elvis and Priscilla Presley honeymooned five years later, following a quick and secretive Las Vegas wedding (Elvis purportedly carried Priscilla over the threshold singing the “Hawaiian Wedding Song" from Blue Hawaii).

After the coupled Honeymooned here on May 1, 1967 their daughter, Lisa Marie Presley was born exactly nine months later, on February 1, 1968.   So safe to say that Michael Jackson's future wife was conceived in this very master bedroom.

Special events are held each year to celebrate the marriage of Elvis and Priscilla, as well as Elvis’ birthday and passing, and The Desert Sun Newspaper says it's the #1 place in Palm Springs to have your picture taken.

The last time the home was listed was three years ago for $9.5 million, but now it’s asking only $5.9 million…a big invenstvent considering you probably will never want to change it, forcing you to live in the past.

The spacious 5,000-square-foot home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Its unusual design consists of four circular living spaces stacked on multiple levels. Its interior features walls of glass, stone walls, and clerestory windows. The front of the house is cantilevered over the lawn and looks a bit like a flying saucer, with a sloping roofline that resembles a pair of wings.

This is a VERY special property...and there are not too many left.  I just hope it goes to someone who LOVES ELVIS and plans to keep it the time capsal that it is.

If you need it, want it, have to have can be yours.  Elvis Presley Honeymoon House

Elvis Preseley....we ❤️you.
