If the walls could talk in Cary Grant’s former Palm Springs estate, we imagine they’d have some fascinating stories to tell. The home, which belonged to the legendary actor from 1954-1972, hosted plenty of Old Hollywood’s elite including Howard Hughes, Katharine Hepburn, and Clark Gable. The priceless history is just one of the features of the estate, which recently hit the market.
Known as Las Palomas, the 6,000 square-foot home has six bedrooms, six baths, and a carport with six spaces. Common areas include a living room, kitchen, dining room, and great room that boasts 40-foot ceilings. The two-story structure also has exposed wood beams throughout.
In honor of one of his frequent visitors, Grant had a special guest wing built and called it the The Alfred Hitchcock Casita. The listing also shares a fun fact about one of the filmmaker’s stays: “It was during one of his visits that Hitchcock coaxed Grant out of retirement, going on to star in career-defining, box-office smashes To Catch a Thief, An Affair to Remember, and North by Northwest.”
The master suite features a cozy fireplace as well as a set of French doors that lead you to a balcony overlooking the property.
Outside on the stone terrace, a heated pool just waits to be jumped in. There’s also a large space next to it for entertaining or lounging.
The home, which was completed in 1930, was designed as an exact replica of a 19th-century Spanish Andalusian farmhouse, according to the listing. It sits on a piece of property that spans over an acre and a half in an exclusive neighborhood dubbed the Movie Colony, where many Old Hollywood actors resided.
Las Palomas is currently for sale with the asking price of $3,495,000. For more information, see the listing at The Agency.
