The space, furnishings, appliances, and decor are really all top notch… The place is a 5-minute walk to all of the restaurants, bars and shops on the strip… the neighborhood is really quiet and there are nice mountain views from the patio.” - Richard

★☆ GREAT LOCATION ☆★
This private villa is part of the prestigious Movie Colony neighborhood where the glamorous Hollywood stars come to play. The property has a prime location two blocks from the Uptown Design District, and less than a 5-minute walk to Downtown's best retail shops, bars, and restaurants.
Even though Movie Colony is close to the downtown area, the property remains extremely quiet and private, shielded from the busy traffic of large hotels and obnoxious passersby. One point to note is that this home is close to a hospital so you may hear the occasional helicopter as this is where Medflight lands.
The historic Movie Colony is named after the many famous movie stars who owned homes in the area from the 1930's to 1960's, including Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, and Al Jolson. This property is rumored to be the former estate of cosmetics icon Estee Lauder. The house next door was owned by Jack Benny.
The estate is also only a 7-minute walk to the famous 22-acre Ruth Hardy Park, where you will find 8 tennis courts, 2 children's play areas, basketball court, 2 volleyball courts, numerous picnic tables with BBQs, and large open fields. The adjacent Wellness Park is a 5-acre wellness oasis that offers a quarter-mile walking/jogging loop, five outdoor fitness stations, and four gardens: meditation, healing, fragrance and a memorial garden. There are also popular public hiking trails just a short walk or bike ride away that offer spectacular views overlooking the city, the airport, and valley.
You can walk from the house to most in-town restaurants and bars. Many of the best restaurants of Palm Springs are within ~5 minutes walk from the house: Copley's, Eight4Nine, Workshop Kitchen, El Mirasol, Trio, Jake's, Birba, Cheeky's, Blue Coyote, and Tac/Quila.
There is parking space inside the gated property for at least 5 cars (2 in garage and 3 in driveway).
The Palm Springs International Airport is approximately 3 miles away and Interstate 10 (that connects you to Joshua Tree National Park or all the way to Los Angeles and Las Vegas) is also only a few miles away. The Convention Center, and the casino are quite close as well.
