Hot Property | Frank Sinatra retreats for all tastes
This home on Malibu’s Broad Beach was designed by architect Ted Grenzbach for Frank Sinatra and his wife, Barbara. It’s for sale at $12.9 million.(Mike Helfrich)
Built in 1992, the two-story estate in Malibu served as a celebrity hangout for Sinatra and his friends. Stars such as Dick Martin, Jack Lemmon, Gregory Peck, Eydie Gormé, Robert Wagner and Dick Van Dyke are among those to visit the oceanfront spot.(Mike Helfrich)
With nine bedrooms and 13 bathrooms across 6,400 square feet, there’s plenty of room for guests in the Palm Desert retreat, which Sinatra took full advantage of when hosting members of the Rat Pack and other celebrities.(Sean Garrison)
Three custom-designed structures fill out the gated retreat: a rustic lodge, a two-story guesthouse and a pool house.
More recently, the Chatsworth property has served as a filming location for episodes of “Mad Men” and “Californication” as well as the film “Dreamgirls.”(James Moss)
The 8,477 square feet of interior space includes grand formal rooms, a screening room with blackout curtains, a library and a junior dining room. There are six bedrooms, five bathrooms and two powder rooms. The master suite opens to a terrace overlooking the grounds.(Christopher Dibble)
Among details of note are steel-cased windows, lacy molding and hardwood floors throughout.(Christopher Dibble)
As one might imagine, the design duo has extensively updated the grand two-story during their two years of ownership.
