Blogger Coronare Modestus Faust Features Twin Palms in Article

home-faustianblogentry Frank Sinatra’ House was recently mentioned in an article entitled “The Rat Pack Leader’s First House — A Palm Springs Legend”. The article, written by E. Stewart Williams and Coronare Modestus Faust talks about the history behind Frank’s purchase of the home. Here’s a sample from the article:

“May 1, 1947, Frank Sinatra — who had just signed a million-dollar movie contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios — wandered into the offices of newly-founded architectural firm Williams, Williams & Williams.

Sinatra, holding an ice cream cone and wearing a sailor’s hat, informed the architects that he wanted them to design and build a huge Georgian-style estate (well, let’s forgive Frank; he was from Hoboken) by Christmas, in time for a party the singer was hosting. Though the desired finish date was only seven months out, Williams, Williams & Williams accepted the commission.”
