Funny Web Park, a blogger using Blogspot, wrote an article entitled 14 Most Famous Celebrity Owned Homes. The article featured Twin Palms, the former desert estate of Frank Sinatra, and other resorts and estates owned by celebrities such as Paul Newman, Donatello Versace, CNN founder Ted Turner, and actor Robert Di Niro among others.
The article features some great photos of each estate and offers a wonderful history of each property.
Here’s a sample from the article:
“Singer Frank Sinatra originally requested that his architects build his Palm Springs, Calif., house with lots of opulent columns, but they talked him into this more casual “desert-appropriate” home. He lived in the home from 1947 to 1957, years that saw many ups and downs in his personal life, including a divorce from his first wife, Nancy, and his marriage to and divorce from Eva Gardner. Through it all, it was a refuge for Sinatra and the Hollywood elite.True to Sinatra’s style, Twin Palms remains a fabulous house for entertaining. Visitors can now stay overnight at the estate, sleep in the master bedroom — secluded from the rest of the house for privacy — swim in the pool and soak up the sun and desert mountain views.”
