Designed by E. Stewart Williams in 1947 for Frank Sinatra and his first wife, Nancy Barbato, Frank Sinatra’s Twin Palms Estate is a spectacular example of mid-century architecture in the heart of Palm Springs. This estate boasts both mid-century style luxury and historical significance with modern amenities. This architectural gem features exquisite period furnishings and infamous piano-shaped swimming pool.
The legendary residence was host to some of the valley’s most glamorous parties with Hollywood’s brightest stars of the day. The twin palm trees located poolside, appropriately name the infamous estate. Frank Sinatra often hoisted his Jack Daniels emblem flag on the flag pole once positioned between the twin palms, which indicated an invite to his Movie Colony neighborhood cronies that revelry and cocktails were in order. The home was also witness to some of Sinatra’s most memorable bouts. One of the most outrageous was when Frank threw then-wife Ava Gardner’s possessions onto the driveway after she appeared at the house in an attempt to catch him with Lana Turner. You can still see the chip in the sink where Frank threw a bottle in a rage. The residence has been completely restored with vintage designer furnishings throughout the residence and includes the original sound and recording system installed by Valentino Electronics in Hollywood.
