Leonardo DiCaprio has tried his hand before as a landlord in the Malibu summer rental scene. Now he’s getting into the act in Palm Springs, where his Modernist estate is available for $4,500 a night with a two-night minimum.
Set on 1.3 acres in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood, the renovated 1963 estate designed by architect Donald Wexler was once owned by Dinah Shore, the big band-era singer, television show host and avid golfer who died in 1994. DiCaprio bought the property last year for $5.23 million.
The 7,022-square-foot showplace has floor-to-ceiling glass walls, wooden ceilings, a massive stone fireplace and a sunken bar in the living room. Including staff quarters, there are six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.
A swimming pool, expanses of lawn and a tennis court complete the grounds.
DiCaprio, 40, was nominated for Academy Awards for his work in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” (1994), “The Aviator” (2005), “Blood Diamond” (2006) and “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013). He’s working on a couple of upcoming films, “The Revenant” and “Mean Business on North Ganson Street.”
