Tour Modern Man Frank Sinatra's Palm Springs Estate
Host of Bravo's Property Envy, Stephen Collins is an expert on desirable real estate and luxury pads. To celebrate Palm Springs' Modernism Week, a festival of the region's signature midcentury modern style and a showcase for homes and furniture of the type, Collins is hosting a YouTube series entitled Man About Modernism, taking viewers inside the best homes the city has to offer. We love this particular peek into the Twin Palms Estate, Frank Sinatra's first home in Palm Springs. Designed and built in a mere 6-month span, the Class 1 Historic Site was designed by E. Stewart Williams in 1947. Serving as the Sinatra family's primary residence from 1948-1957, the home boasts a private master wing, piano-shaped pool, period recording equipment, and original artwork by Sinatra himself.
