Designed by John Byers, AIA, Cary Grant’s 19th-century Spanish Andalusian farmhouse, Las Palomas, sits on 1.5 acres in Palm Springs’ famed Movie Colony. Grant’s desert retreat served as a haven for fellow Hollywood luminaries such as Alfred Hitchcock, Katharine Hepburn, Frank Sinatra and Grace Kelly.
Walled, gated and lined with greenery, a large drive and motor court lead to an impeccably-maintained hacienda. While extensively restored, it preserves original elements such as terracotta floor tiles, wood-burning fireplaces, and custom cabinetry.
The open floor plan features spacious common areas with soaring ceilings and a series of French doors opening to surrounding gardens. Upstairs living quarters includes a master suite with a fireplace and balconies overlooking the grounds.
Idyllic, beautifully manicured outdoors feature a stone pool and spa terrace, surrounded by majestic 80-year-old eucalyptus trees, palms, agave and an array of fruit trees that bloom year round.
