In the on-again, off-again world of real estate listings, a home once owned by crooner Frank Sinatra that surfaced five years ago is back – this time priced at $3.995 million. That's $1 million off the 2008 asking price.
Named Villa Maggio for Ol' Blue Eyes' Oscar-winning character, Pvt. Angelo Maggio in the movie "From Here to Eternity" (1953), the desert/mountain compound encompasses 10 acres in Mountain Center near Palm Desert.
The main house, guesthouse and pool house have a total of seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and 6,428 square feet. There’s also a lighted tennis court.
Sinatra, who died in 1998 at 82, helped design the house and lived there for 15 years, according to Times archives. He entertained generations of music fans with hits including "My Way" and "Come Fly With Me."
Matthew Berkley of Crosby Doe Associates is the listing agent.
