While Frank Sinatra famously sang about New York, New York, it appears he also had a soft spot for sunny California, as he personally designed his own isolated slice of paradise on a mountain in Palm Desert. The late musician lived on the stunning compound for many years before it was listed for $4.25 million.
The enchanting property, built in 1970, may seem worlds away from civilization, but the California abode is actually only a 20-minute drive from local shops and restaurants. Sinatra — who died at 82 in 1998 — would use his 7.5-acre secluded compound to enjoy some down time and larger-than-life parties with his Rat Pack pals.
Named "Villa Maggio" after Sinatra's character, Angelo Maggio, in the 1953 movie From Here to Eternity, the estate is situated high above the rest of the city but offers a ton of room for passing and overnight guests.
