Any week filled with two separate Frank Sinatra real estate tidbits is bound to be a good one: on Monday, news broke that Ol' Blue Eyes' one-time Los Angeles home—currently owned by Paramount CEO Brad Grey—hit the market; now, the good people at Zillow bring word that Sinatra's hideaway near Palm Desert
has also been re-listed by the owner who tried, unsuccessfully, to unload the place back in 2009. Villa Maggio, which Sinatra designed with architect Ross Patten in the late '60s, saw many a Rat Pack hangout and grand fête during the 12 years that the singer owned it. The next owner can certainly keep the party alive, for the property boasts eight bedrooms and 12.5 bathrooms spread out over a main house and two guests houses, not to mention a tricked-out kitchen, pool, and helipad (which Sinatra made use of quite frequently). Seems like a fine day to settle in with a "gentleman's drink" and ogle some vintage-y listing photos, doesn't it?
UPDATE: This property was never in fact listed for sale. Blame it on a super-scary techno-glitch that seeded it to Zillow and other MLS sites. Curbed apologizes for the misinformation.
