The Palm Springs home of singer and actor Trini Lopez is for sale at $1.575 million.

Lopez, 80, gained fame in the 1960s for his hit adaptations of “If I Had a Hammer” and “Lemon Tree.” He also had a turn on the silver screen, appearing in the film classic “The Dirty Dozen” (1967) and the comedy “The Phynx” (1970).

The Alexander Construction Co.-built home has four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in more than 2,500 square feet of space.

The Midcentury home, built by the Alexander Construction Company in 1961, is on the market after being slightly damaged by fire last year. It features a gated courtyard entry, a living room with sunken wet bar and a separate casita with a kitchenette. Tongue-and-groove ceilings with exposed beams are found throughout the single-story floor plan.


Other living spaces include an eat-in kitchen, a dining room, four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The home, which sits on slightly more than a quarter-acre, has more than 2,500 square feet of living space.

Sliding glass doors open to an expansive patio that surrounds a swimming pool and spa. There are mountain and tree-top views from the frontyard and backyard.

Palm Springs-area broker Deborah Scanlon is the listing agent.
