Sinatra’s Party Pad
If walls could talk, the ones in this 50s-era home would probably be slurring from all the highballs.
Frank Sinatra rented it in his Rat Pack heyday and sublet the guest house to Marilyn Monroe. It was the site of her last photo shoot and allegedly where she met the 35th president for an affair.
If it looks familiar, it may be because you watch TV or movies. It’s been a set in “Dreamgirls,” Usher’s “Burn” video and “Mad Men,” among many others. The latter makes perfect sense since the whole property is decorated in period motif.
The seller makes the case that you can bring in a couple hundred thousand dollars a year easy just renting it out as a set. That’s not going too far to offset the $12 million asking price, but you might not need the money.
The 10,000sf estate features 3 lower level private offices with a conference room and has 4 bedrooms with 5.5 baths. There is also a detached gym steps away to the 50-ft. swimming pool, and it has panoramic views and parking for 200 vehicles, making it the ideal abode for hosting large parties and events.
Often referred to as the “great glass mansion,” the home is perched atop its own 14 acre hill and vineyard which overlooks a 3,000 acre nature preserve.
The mid-century home was completed in 1951 by architects Pereira & Luckman. Sinatra leased the impressive property for much of the 1950’s.
