The iconic Palm Springs getaway where Elvis and Priscilla Presley spent their honeymoon has returned to the market with a significant price-cut from its original asking price of $9.5 million three years ago.
Now listed for $2,695,000, the 5,000-square-foot residence not only offers a famous connection to The King of Rock ’n Roll—Elvis famously carried his new bride, Priscilla, over the threshold while singing "Hawaiian Wedding Song" in his film Blue Hawaii—but also sports a strikingly experimental design that had been a trendsetter for modern living in Southern California.
Completed in 1960, the midcentury-modern abode was designed by architect William Krisel for Robert Alexander and his wife Helene, who lived there until their untimely death in a plane crash in 1965.
A prolific architect best known for his many tract homes in California, Krises designed relatively few custom homes, with the Alexander house being one of them.
Spanning three floors, the interior is divided into four large circles that give way to unusually proportioned spaces, including an octagonal master bedroom and a circular living room with a circular hearth.
In 1966, Elvis leased the home and lived there briefly with his bride, Priscilla, after their wedding in 1967.
However, it wasn’t until after 1987 when the home came into the possession of current co-owner Leonard Lewis that the property earned the nickname ‘Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway’. The owners furnished the five-bedroom, five-bath residence with Elvis memorabilia and opened the space to paid tours and Elvis-themed events.
