Old Las Palmas house description

The former Palm Springs estate of famed movie star Alan Ladd, this home is a Mid-Century Modern designed by WEXLER. This home is truly one of the desert’s most remarkable properties. Located on one of the finest streets in the very heart of the exclusive and quiet Old Las Palmas neighborhood (the Beverly Hills of Palm Springs!), the compound has all of the amenities and glamor that one would expect in the former home of such a major star. Designed by legendary architects Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison, the home has been featured in numerous architectural books and magazines, as well as the book “Palm Springs Confidential.”

The 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom estate sprawls over 4000+ square feet and has an open floor plan perfect for large scale entertaining or family gatherings. The home is entered from the street through gates, the walls and hedges of the large property providing a secure and utterly private environment for our guests. As was the style with classic mid-century architecture, virtually the entire home opens onto the spectacular back yard & pool area. The pool is quite large (suitable for lap swimming) with an elevated spa and three waterfalls surrounding the edge. Seating and lounging is abundant for sunbathing during the day with breathtaking mountain views and 2-fire pits to provide warmth and elegance in the evening!

The home is equally spectacular inside. The living space flows easily from the great room with stone fireplace, into a media room with seating for 8 and a large new plasma TV, a formal dining room with seating for an additional 8-10, and a casual dining room and wet bar with seating for another 8. Immediately adjacent and open to the casual dining room and bar, is the expansive cook’s kitchen complete with all the amenities one would expect in a home of this caliber. For our Kosher Friends we have 2 Dishwashers, 2 Ovens, and 2 Sinks with NEW Corian Counter Tops. In addition, there is an outdoor grill for poolside entertaining! Needless to say, the furnishings are comfortable, yet elegant, in keeping with the mid-century decor. Original art adorns the walls throughout!

The 5 bedrooms are separated into two wings. On one side of the house is the master bedroom and bath, opening onto the pool and with a huge walk in closet. Two other bedrooms are located in the master wing, each with a dedicated bathroom.

The remaining two bedrooms are located on the complete opposite end of the house, behind the kitchen. Both open directly to the pool area. Every bedroom has its own new flat screen TV.

Finally, the house is walking distance to downtown Palm Springs and close to shopping, dining, golfing, tennis, hiking and the casinos. The Old Las Palmas neighborhood is perfect for biking, walking and jogging, with its flat, wide streets. Come visit the Alan Ladd Estate and experience the glamor of Old Hollywood in Palm Springs!
