Frank Sinatra's So Cal "Rat Pack" Mansion Villa

Frank Sinatra's So Cal "Rat Pack" Mansion Villa


About a 30-minute drive from Palm Desert is Frank Sinatra"s desert hideaway, "Villa Maggio", named after his role as Private Angelo Maggio in "From Here to Eternity."

If the Rat Pack and friends of the Rat Pack didn"t make the drive along the picturesque Pines to Palms Highway en route to Sinatra's Mountain Center hideaway, Sinatra flew them into Palm Springs and then helicoptered them to Villa Maggio.

Sinatra fans, this is your chance to tuck away a piece of history: Villa Maggio is for sale.

Additional anecdotes:

Sinatra built the hideaway in the 1970's for the seclusion and as a getaway for his friends

Villa Maggio is on 7+ acres of elevated granite terrain (4,300 feet) and has a main house and two guest homes, plus a pool and helipad.

Sinatra owned it for 12 years and then donated it to Loyola Marymount University. Evidently, the school didn’t make use of it and sold it in 1989 for $1.4 million.

Two other couples owned it for a few years each prior to the present owner (also a celebrity).

Sinatra loved to cook and he designed the kitchen himself, which has remained unchanged after all these years.

A breath-taking, private, self-contained compound above Palm Springs. Built by Sinatra for privacy & seclusion to entertain family and friends, the Rat Pack and other celebs. Property boasts a main estate with mother-in-law quarters, a detached guest house with 3 separate suites, and a pool house. Features a custom pool, a full size tennis/ sports court. Additional homes may be built on the two additional 2.5 acre parcels, buyer responsible to investigate city building department for conditions.
