Frank Sinatra’s House

I was watching one of those reality shows a while back and they did an episode from this fantastic home. I remember thinking I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when he threw his big parties. I have always loved this style of home. Built in 1947 and designed by E. Stewart Williams it is a landmark steeped in modern architecture history that influence the designs of many houses that followed. Through two tumultuous relationships, Sinatra would live in Twin Palms for seven years before selling it. The estate was named after the twin palm trees, located poolside; at the time they were the tallest trees in the valley. This spectacular home was located in the famous Movie Colony neighborhood, just around the corner from residences once owned by Al Jolson, Jack Benny and Cary Grant.

Here are some great images of Sinatra’s home.

I stumbled across this great clip about Twin Palms…..enjoy!

Oh, and you can rent this sweet home for around $2,600.00 a nite!

The home was also used in a movie called “The Damned Don’t Cry” staring Joan Crawford.
