Time Magazine’s November 14, 1960 cover story described this home as an “airy, glass pleasure dome.”
Formerly, Frederick Loewe’s “Little Camelot” - can now be your mid-century modern desert domicile. "Set on a boulder strewn hillside, the estate offers unparalleled, jaw dropping, 360 degree views of the San Jacinto Mountains, Coachella Valley below and extensively landscaped grounds and paths. The view extends for miles across the valley and mountains. At all times of the day, from the early hours of the morning as the sun rises over the valley until the sun sets and the city lights sparkle alive, this estate offers the best vantage point in Palm Springs bar none. There are over 100 olive trees, 33 palm trees, numerous flowers and cacti and a massive rose garden which was designed and planted by Frederick Loewe himself." Sounds like the one of the sweetest soiree spots we've ever heard of.
