The personal retreat of Ol’ Blue Eyes, the Chairman of the Board Frank Sinatra was done his way and has hit the market complete with helipad, parking for 24 cars and 12 bathrooms.

And it’s been listed a surprisingly low $4.5m US dollars ($6.29m AUD) — a rare treat for those in the market for luxury retreats.

Named the “Villa Maggio”, it has a whopping nine bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms and one half bath.

Agent Markus Canter of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services was marketing it as having been “mindfully renovated and restored, resting high above the desert valley”.

“Villa Maggio offers panoramic views, a temperate year-round climate and the chance to own a piece of history. Frank Sinatra helped design and build this secluded estate, which includes three buildings, a resort-style pool, a lit tennis court and helipad, parking for 24 cars and approximately 7.5 acres of land.”

“Sinatra’s dual purpose with the design shows a desire to escape the heat and a need for a secret desert hideaway.”

“One of Sinatra’s favourite personal residences, the 6,428 square foot interior has been lovingly preserved to reflect his style and preferences. The surrounding mountainsides provide a timeless, surreal backdrop for the estate, which encompasses a five bedroom main house with 5.5 bathrooms, a self-sufficient guest home, and a two bedroom pool house with two saunas.”

The 597 sqm home listed as Frank Sinatra’s “desert hideaway” sits in a three hectare estate just two hours from Los Angeles, California, 20 minutes away from Palm Desert and El Paseo with Palm Springs Airport 26 miles (41km) away.
