Howard Hughes Palm Springs Playhouse … Rich With Celeb History
8/11/2018 12:10 AM PDT
Palm Springs has been a celebrity playground for decades … and it’s also where the former home of Howard Hughes, one of the world’s weirdest and wealthiest people, just changed hands.
Hughes’ sleek mid-century home has sold for $ 1.3 million … not bad for an area that regularly fetches 7 figures.
The 3 bedroom, 3 bath gem was built in 1957 and had been a vacation rental before hitting the market for the first time in decades.
Whoever bought it now has a home with a rich celeb history … it was previously owned by actress Eva Gabor and comedy writer Paul Keyes. Legendary film producer (and cocaine trafficker) Robert Evans chose it for his honeymoon. The home was once a fave vacation spot for Smokey Robinson.
Check out the vintage bathrooms, master bedroom complete with fireplace and the sprawling back deck that looks like it belongs on a cruise ship!
The listing agent for the sale of the house was Leonardo Montenegro and Josh Morrow represented the buyer.
