Old Las Palmas
Have you ever been to a locality that was very easy on the eye and provided an inviting appeal? Old Las Palmas is one such locale. Its inception dates back to the 1920’s when most global economies were trying to rebuild after the effects of the First World War. The period earmarked the establishment of a luxurious community nestled in Palm Springs, CA. Old Las Palmas existed long before contemporary designs could be time stamped as Mid-Century or renowned architects could play their part in the redesign of these timeless masterpieces. At present, the locality is a distinct community that is far-removed from its humble beginnings as a citrus grove.
The mention of Old Las Palmas would be incomplete without highlighting some of the celebrities (actors, movie directors, writers, industry leaders…) that have at some point, either vacationed or owned a piece of this glorious haven. These include Sidney Sheldon, Joseph Barbra, William Powell, Harold Robbins, Sidney Korshak, Jack Warner and George Randolph Hearst. These are but a few of the big shots that have prized Old Las Palmas. Evidently, this locale must be having its ducks in a row, right? Otherwise, how would it justify such an ostentatious list of celebrities? As such, living in such an address commands a matching price tag. If you can shell out between $900,000 and $7 million, then a unit in this neighborhood will be yours for the taking.
