Hide Out in Frank Sinatra’s Cool Rat Pack Desert Pad

Feb. 22nd, 2021

Back in the 1960s, when Frank Sinatra’s Rat Pack was dominating Las Vegas with their insanely popular shows, Sinatra bought a desert hideaway to unwind. Found just a few hours from Vegas, on a piece of land above Palm Desert, the home is known as Villa Maggio and can now be yours for just $4.25 million. 

Villa Maggio, built in the late 1960s and named after his 1954 Academy-Award-winning role as Private Angelo Maggio in From Here to Eternity, was Sinatra’s place of choice to relax with his buddies, away from prying eyes. The 10-acre compound is made up of three buildings, all built in a rustic style using warm woods and local stone. The main house features seven fireplaces, two kitchens, dining and living rooms, a den, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a deck overlooking desert views. It also has guest quarters attached.

Guests can choose between quarters attached to the main house, as well as an entire detached guest house. There’s also a pool house with a great room, a stone fireplace, two bathrooms, two saunas, and a mini-kitchen with views over the pool and tennis court. Additionally, there is also a generator, water tower, and well on the property. And of course, there’s enough parking space for 25 cars and a private helipad for the days you don’t feel like driving.
