    Description


    Crowning one of the highest points in Palm Springs' highly sought-after enclave of The Mesa, this is where all the serious celebrities played and partied. Dating back to 1929, the property has a rich history tied to the Golden Age of Hollywood, when MGM Studios used this magical site as a retreat for Clark Gable, Cary Grant, Carole Lombard, Gloria Swanson and others, to review scripts, relax and revitalize. This unique and rare opportunity of luxury in the desert has only been available a couple of times since it was originally built. On a private road, snuggled against the mountain with a backyard of massive natural beauty where bighorn sheep roam, the unique luxurious location beholds a mystique that recalls a different place and time. Sweeping views stretch all the way across the valley floor in the distance and frame city lights, a canyon and a colorful sea of palm trees in the foreground. Extending from the mountain's edge to the canyon below, the property includes two original structures and spans approx. 77,972 s.f. (1.79 acres). Possibilities are virtually endless with unsurpassed views in a one-of-a-kind setting. A rare opportunity now that it is finally on the market.
