The Midcentury Modern home in Palm Springs known as the Elvis Presley honeymoon hideaway has come back on the market at $5.9 million.

Although he never owned the property, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll leased the residence starting in 1966. He married Priscilla Wagner in 1967.

The stucco- and stone-clad house is made up of four circle-shaped living spaces set on three levels. Designed by Modernist architect William Krisel, it includes curved walls of stone, a round kitchen island and a circular fireplace in the center of the living room.

The sprawling house has a funky/kitschy vibe that recalls its 1960s origins and Presley’s residency. Dining and living rooms, a bar, a breakfast bar, four bedrooms and five bathrooms are among the 5,000 square feet of living spaces.

A swimming pool, a tennis court and a fruit orchard make up the 1.25 acres of grounds. Views take in the mountains and desert.

Look familiar? The TV movies “Elvis & Me” (1988) and “Elvis by the Presleys” (2005) were filmed on location.

Presley, who died in 1977 at age 42, appealed to multiple generations with his Grammy-winning vocals, television and live performances and movie roles. Among his enduring hits are “Jailhouse Rock,” “Love Me Tender” and “Hound Dog.”
