When Elvis picked Look magazine’s ‘House of Tomorrow’ for his and Priscilla’s blissful 1967 honeymoon, Elvis was already at his peak of popularity and could afford any honeymoon location in the world.
This futuristic house in Palm Springs, was actually leased by Presley for several years. It still looks much like it did when hosting the happy couple.
Today, the ‘House of Tomorrow’ is priced at a cool $2.5 million (R36.4m).
The mid-century-modern abode is an interesting example of the contemporary style for which the city is famous. Looking much like our concept of the interior of a flying saucer back in the day, it was chosen by Look magazine in 1962 as their ‘House of Tomorrow.’
5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms
Deceivingly large, the home has five bedrooms and five baths along with a spacious interior in the round, which gives it its space age vibe.
Built in 1960 with 5,000 square feet of living space, the house is built on a grade and is cantilevered, offering excellent privacy for the main living areas.
The design by modernist-architect William Krisel was built for the owner of the home’s Vistas Las Palmas neighbourhood construction company, created out of four circular living areas on three levels with a curved wall of stonework.
A favourite mid-century feature is the centre-of-the-room fireplace with chimney suspended from the ceiling and walls of glass overlooking its 1.16 acres. Outside are a private garden, tennis court, orchard and a partly shaded terraced swimming pool for lounging and outdoor barbecues.
Priced at $2.5 million, the property is listed by Scott Histed of Bennion Deville Homes, Rancho Mirage office.
