Frank Sinatra's Desert Retreat For Sale

Anyone interested in living like Ol' Blue Eyes now has the chance. Frank Sinatra's former retreat in California's Palm Desert is on the market, priced at $3.995 million.  

Villa Maggio, named after Mr. Sinatra's character in From Here to Eternity, was built in 1967 by architect Ross Patton, according to Realtor.com.  

At a time when Mr. Sinatra was topping Billboard charts, Villa Maggio was home to many Rat Pack parties and a hangout for his friends, according to local lore. The 10-acre property includes a three-bedroom main house, three-bedroom guest house and a two-bath, double-sauna pool house. 

Although some of the interior decor has a modern feel, Villa Maggio's mid-century design "retains much of the colorful, late-1960s eclecticism that followed the subdued, minimalist aesthetic of postwar America," according to the listing.  

The retreat originally cost $1.9 million to build, and includes a private helipad. 

A virtual tour of the property offers a better sense of the interior and desert landscape.
