Panoramic views of the mountains and valleys are on full display throughout this secluded and private escape, which includes 3 buildings, a resort-style pool, a lighted tennis court and helipad, parking for a few dozen cars and approximately 7.5 acres of land.
Sinatra had a dual purpose in the design of the estate: a desire to escape the oppressive heat of the desert valley below and a need to provide his friends, which included traveling dignitaries, sports stars, elite power players and members of the Rat Pack, with the ultimate in luxury and comfort as well as the utmost in privacy and security.
With an extensive use of locally-sourced materials, including natural stone and hardwoods, the residence adds beauty to the surrounding environment. Wide overhanging eaves provide shade and reduce the ecological footprint. Hardwood floors, numerous fireplaces, and vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams give the estate an understated and relaxing, down-to-earth atmosphere; the commercial grade appliances in the main home’s two full kitchens make it more than ready for guests and the demands of modern life.
Recognized as the quintessential entertainer, Sinatra ensured the guest house was on par with the resorts and luxury hotels where his friends were accustomed to staying. The two-story guest home offers three guest suites, each with a private view deck, stone fireplace, kitchenette, and bathroom. If the walls could talk, a likely topic of conversation would have to be about who traveled in the secret passage between two of the guest house bedrooms.
