Like her sisters Zsa Zsa and Eva, socialite and occasional actress Magda Gabor had a taste for the opulent—and little trouble finding husbands. She moved into this over-the-top Palm Springs estate in 1964, in the midst of her fourth marriage, to builder Tony Gallucci (following his death, she briefly wed George Sanders—Zsa Zsa’s third husband).
Gabor remained in the residence until her death in 1997, and the house doesn’t appear to have changed all that much since then (listing agent Joan Ross tells us that portraits of Gabor still hang on the walls). Now, the house is looking for its third-ever owner.
Perched on a huge six-acre lot, the three-bedroom home sits in the mountains above the Little Tuscany neighborhood. Mirrored walls and floor-to-ceiling glass windows accentuate its roomy 3,441 square feet of living space. Other interior features include stone floors, extravagant light fixtures, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access points.
The house is fronted by a large swimming pool surrounded by sculptures and a large deck with panoramic views around the area. The main entrance is flanked by a long, covered veranda with additional space for outdoor seating.
The showy residence is listed for $3.425 million.
