Time for a cast change in desert

A Palm Springs home once owned by the late film star William Holden is listed at $1,495,000.

The post-and-beam Midcentury Modern house has a tongue-and-groove ceiling, terrazzo floor and glass walls. Sitting on nearly an acre of land encircled by ficus trees, the nearly 5,000-square-foot house includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a detached guest casita.

A wet bar sits poolside. There are two double garages.

Holden, who died in 1981 at 63, lived in the house for 18 years. The leading man starred in "The Bridge on the River Kwai" (1957), "Sunset Blvd." (1950) and "The Wild Bunch" (1969). He won a lead-actor Oscar for "Stalag 17" (1953).

The property last changed hands in 1999 for $750,000, according to public records.

Lisa N. Casey and Sean Casey of the Casey Group at HOM Real Estate Group, Palm Springs, are the listing agents.
