Elvis Presley’s home in Palm Springs where he and his wife Priscilla enjoy honeymoon is back on the market, but now with reduced price of $6.93 million – a 27% price drop from a year ago when it was listed at $9.5 million.
Elvis and Priscilla leased a Midcentury Modern home for about a year. They signed the lease before their Las Vegas wedding in 1967 and paid $21,000 a month for the suave residence. A copy of the lease hangs on the wall today.
The residence was purchased by Boston-based investor M.L. Lewis through a trust in 1987 for $487,500 who has owned it ever since. Since he is a huge Elvis fan, the house is a museum stocked with Elvis memorabilia, including wedding pictures of the couple.
Approximately 5,500-square-feet glass-and-stone house was constructed by custom builder Robert Alexander and consists of four circle-shaped living spaces set on three levels. Modernist architect William Krisel used curved walls of stone, a round kitchen island and a circular fireplace in the center of the living room to further emphasize the distinctive shape. The house has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, dining and living rooms, a bar and a breakfast bar. It also has a pool, waterfall features at the front and tennis court.
