A mystery buyer couldn’t help falling in love with Elvis Presley’s honeymoon hideaway — and has agreed to purchase the saucer-shaped Palm Springs, California, home for more than its $2.5 million listing price.
Elvis and Priscilla rented the five-bedroom, five-bathroom hideaway in Palm Springs for their honeymoon in 1967. The futuristic home is made of four connected pods — some spherical, others hexagonal. It first splashed onto the architectural scene as Look Magazine’s 1962 “House of Tomorrow.”
“It’s scheduled to close today,” listing broker Scott Histed told The Post. “We had several offers on it, and it sold over asking price.”
Histed, of California brokerage Bennion Deville Homes, said that the home at 1350 Ladera Circle had several conditional offers over the past few years that fell through. The property was listed 10 times over the past six years and on Nov. 30, offered a nearly 75% discount from its original $9.5 million asking price in 2014.
Built in 1960 by local builder Robert Alexander for his family, the 5,000-square-foot house with mountain views boasts a floating fireplace, rock walls, walk-in pantry, four-car garage and a heated gunite pool. The property is next to a tennis court, which is also for sale, asking $1.18 million, according to the listing.
“[Robert Alexander] built that home for himself, so it’s one of a kind. The architecture is outstanding. It’s a collectable house, and not just because of Elvis,” said Histed.
The home has been faithfully preserved as a shrine to the time the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll spent in the home, but its celebrity connection didn’t help the home sell. The unnamed buyer plans to restore the original architecture and put it back on the market, said Histed.
“In Palm Springs, a lot of celebrities have homes here. They’re just people like you and I, but that cachet doesn’t add value to it — not to the people who can afford it. They care about the architecture and the neighborhood,” said Histed.
