The roll call of people who have owned or rented the 2,400 square-foot midcentury modern at 2195 Rim Road in Palm Springs can go toe-to-toe with just about any house in America. Actress Eva Gabor, comedy writer Paul Keyes, mucisian Smokey Robinson, and legendary film producer Robert Evans have all holed up here. But it is eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes who stands out as the highest-profile resident of them all.
Now it’s your turn to join that illustrious list. All you need is $1.2 million.
Built in 1957, this three-level residence is Palm Springs personified. Vaulted ceilings and open living areas allow you to take in the full experience of desert scenery through floor-to-ceiling windows. The exposed wood beams mix nicely with whitewashed brick as recent renovations haven’t robbed the home of it’s original charm.
You know it’s a fancy place when it includes a receiving room, which can easily become the living room for a guest staying in the bedroom just behind it. The master bedroom comes with it’s own fireplace, living room alcove, and a massive private deck. We’re partial to the bottom-level bedroom with floating stairs to ascend and quick access to the backyard.
In fact, the whole place is built for indoor-outdoor living, which is basically required in Palm Springs. It should go without saying but it features a relaxing pool and hot tub with plenty of room for lounging in the sun or under a canvas cabana.
No wonder so many famous folks have called this place home. We expect another one to do so soon enough as well.
