This pueblo-style ranch among rock outcrops in Bell Canyon was built for record producer Snuff Garrett, who entertained such Hollywood stars as Frank Sinatra, Orson Welles and Roy Rogers on the 3.23-acre property. Log beam ceilings, saltillo tile floors and a stone fireplace lend a frontier quality to the five-bedroom main house. Outdoors, the rustic ambiance continues with various conversation areas, a horseshoe pit, a dressage arena and other ancillary structures, set off by a backdrop of cacti, boulders and desert landscapes.
