My new listing of this gorgeous, historic home is getting a lot of attention. It’s history runs deep in Palm Springs as it played home to many famous Hollywood personalities. Built by MGM producer and heir to the Sears Roebuck fortune, Armand Deutsch, ScreenLands was part of a pristine mid-century enclave. Once owned by Wizard of Oz producer and director, Mervyn LeRoy, this home eventually sold to Columbia Pictures president, Mike Frankovich.
Located just minutes from downtown Palm Springs, ScreenLands offers a private desert oasis -a stylish and serene mid-century mini estate that epitomizes indoor/outdoor living.
A testament to the modernist movement, this perfectly preserved 2,900+ square foot home is as fresh and elegant today as it was when it was built over 60 years ago. With its emphasis on natural materials, pared down forms, light-filled spacious rooms and a seamless flow between the indoor and out, ScreenLands offers a functional modern comfort that captures the magical 1950’s Palm Springs lifestyle.
Entering the property, enclosed by a greenery-laced 6ft block privacy wall, you’re greeted by individual green space, manicured gravel drive and walkways, towering date palms, citrus trees, bougainvillea and a sparkling pool; all surrounding the sleek ScreenLands house itself.
For those seeking a timeless bridge between the magical “Then” and the modern “Now,” ScreenLands’ extraordinary combination of mid-century pedigree, rich Hollywood History and stylistically faithful updates make it the perfect place to create a new magical, yet modern life!
