It once belonged to Hollywood royalty Zsa Zsa Gabor. But now this incredible Palm Springs retreat has gone on the market for $1m after the screen icon died of a heart attack at the age of 99. She once famously said that every time she left a man, she kept his home, although it is not clear exactly who purchased this property.
The home has a pool to cool off in the desert as well as mountain views. Movie fans who can afford the price tag, which is just short of $1m could live just like the A lister. The spectacular home was built six decades ago and is very modest by Hollywood standards, having just two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a main house and then a separate casita where the owner can entertain guests separate to their own quarters.
A deck winds its way around the home, overlooking the quiet countryside. Palm Springs was once home to superstars including Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin and it is still popular with the rich and famous, who want to escape the bright lights of Los Angeles. The area has also become increasingly popular because of the Coachella music festival, which is held nearby every year.
Zsa Zsa was born in 1917 in Hungary, leaving her birth country to become a movie star in the US. She had starring roles in a number of movies, including Lovely to Look at and Moulin Rouge. However, the actress was as much known for her personality off screen, and her witty comments as her films. She was also renowned for having married nine times.
She was one of the many celebrities who died in 2016, having suffered a heart attack on December 18. She would have turned 100 next month. While her main property was in Bel Air, she often visited Palm Springs.
