Built in 1960, the Palm Springs home where Elvis and Priscilla Presley honeymooned has futuristic vibes.
A honeymoon hideaway steeped in rock ’n’ roll history is back up for sale in California’s Coachella Valley.
In Palm Springs, the futuristic-vibe residence to which Elvis and Priscilla Presley decamped following their secretive wedding in 1967 has returned to the market at $2.695 million. That’s considerably less than the $9.5 million the modernist home first listed for, and its $5.9-million asking price last year.
Known as the “House of Tomorrow,” the home was designed by modernist architect William Krisel and built in 1960. A walkway lined in floating spherical stairs sets the tone for the house. Four circular “pod” wings give the home its distinct appearance, which incorporates stone walls and floor-to-ceiling windows across 5,000 square feet of living space.
Cascading clerestories ring the ceiling in the living room, which is anchored by a fireplace suspended from the ceiling.
A similar metallic structure tops the island/stove in the rounded kitchen. Up a set of shrinking stairs, the master suite is covered in drapes and includes a checkered-floor bathroom with a freestanding tub in the middle.
A lawn and landscaping surround a spacious swimming pool in the backyard.
All art and furnishings, including some portraits of Elvis and a jukebox, are included in the sale.
Presley, who died in 1977 at age 42, helped shape the music of a generation because of his provocative style and genre-bending discography. His hits include “Jailhouse Rock,” “Suspicious Minds” and “Burning Love.” In 1986, he was part of the first group of inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
