Historic Elvis Honeymoon Estate
In 1966 this historic mid-century estate was leased to Elvis Presley where he and Priscilla spent their honeymoon; Lisa Marie was born nine months later. This iconic modernist estate was designed in four perfect circles, on three levels, incorporating glass and peanut brittle stonework for indoor-outdoor living. The home features four bedrooms and five baths. Nestled at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, the honeymoon suite offers a panoramic view of the Santa Rosa Mountains and the Coachella Valley. The secluded grounds include a pool, stage, private garden, tennis court, and fruit orchard.
The Mid Century Modernism Classic Estate was built in 1960 by prominent Palm Springs developer Robert Alexander for his wife, Helene and has been restored to its 1960s splendor and features art deco design and furnishings throughout. In September 1962 Look Magazine featured the estate as a centerfold and called it “The House of Tomorrow” in an article entitled “The Way Out Way Of Life.” It portrayed the Alexanders and the Estate as the center of social activities in Palm Springs in the early 1960s. It also appears as a centerfold in “Palm Springs Weekend” by Hess and Danish.
Over its decades serving as a honeymoon hideaway for Elvis and Priscila Presley and an architectural and cultural fixture many movies have been filmed at the estate including “Elvis & Me” and “Elvis by the Presleys”.
This historic mid-century masterpiece is perfectly located minutes from Palm Springs International Airport and downtown.
