THE LUCY HOUSE
A sprawling, Spanish-style home with terracotta roofs and a guest casita, The Lucy House is located in one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in downtown Palm Springs, known as El Mirador. Surrounded by a wrought-iron gate and a 12-foot ficus tree wall, this 5-bedroom home sits on manicured grounds lined with soaring palm trees with plenty of privacy.
Inside the main house, cinephiles will be delighted by its mid-century modern design mixed with elegant Spanish villa decor as they are transported back to a glamorous era. Luxuriate by 2,800 sq. ft of space, this home is an entertainer’s delight—and was rumored to have hosted fabulous parties with movie legends staying across the street at El Mirador Hotel. (If these walls could talk!)
The expansive great room boasts vaulted ceilings, tiled floors, a gas fireplace, and a wall of windows that floods the room with natural light. Just beyond the living area, a custom, hardwood dining table seats 10 guests when you prefer to dine in the comfort of air conditioning. The gourmet kitchen features granite countertops, high-end appliances, and a wet bar for making a tray of cocktails to be served poolside.
Three sets of French doors open to the backyard from the kitchen, where guests can dine alfresco at the 10-seat table under the covered patio, sun on one of eight chaise lounge chairs, swim in the luxurious 35-foot pool, and take in mountain views from the above-ground spa. The Lucy House seamlessly blends indoor living with outdoor fun!
Once the party’s over, guests can take refuge in the main house with 1 primary suite and 4 attached guest casitas—all of which open onto the courtyard and pool area with stunning, panoramic mountain views from their own private entrances. The stylish primary bedroom boasts an ornate gas fireplace and a stand-alone spa tub for soaking. The detached casitas are perfectly spaced out to provide added privacy and are very stylish with posh finishings.
Between its resort-style amenities, chic décor, and celebrity history, The Lucy House offers a unique opportunity to experience the storied destination of Palm Springs just as Hollywood’s biggest stars once did. And although this classic home has gone through renovations to modernize certain features, one can easily imagine Lucille and Desi spending time in the pool, hosting parties on the patio, or lounging around with friends and family during the golden age of Modernism.
