The Clark Gable Estate in Palm Springs is currently listed for sale by Bennion Deville Homes. The company also has The Sonny Bono Estate listed for sale.

Bennion Deville Homes, the desert’s real estate leader and one of the top independent brokerages in the nation, has two of the desert’s most prominent celebrity estates listed for sale. The Sonny Bono Estate, listed by PS Properties, and a property once owned by Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, listed by Daniel Ferretti, are both pieces of Palm Springs history available for purchase. The Clark Gable Estate is currently pending a sale but accepting backup offers.

A longtime retreat for Hollywood’s brightest stars in its Golden Era, the Greater Palm Springs Area has once again blossomed into the “it” destination of Southern California, welcoming a wide band of visitors to relax and unwind. For those who wish to make the desert a more permanent residence, and create a big splash in the process, these two properties present a phenomenal, rare opportunity to own a home with classic A-Lister connections.

Built in 1940, the Sonny Bono Estate is located on a 1.5-acre parcel in The Mesa neighborhood of Palm Springs and transports you to a locale unlike any other in the Coachella Valley. Featuring verdant grounds, including lush gardens, a full tennis court, swimming pool, and ample entertaining space both indoors and out, the property overflows with romance and relaxation. There are three homes situated on the property creating a combined 8989 SF of living space, including a main house and two comfortable guest houses. Charming architectural highlights and warm features, including wood beam ceilings and stone fireplaces, coupled with emerald greens, mature trees and vegetation, and expansive outdoor verandas, make this estate a true desert dreamscape. The property is currently listed for $4,995,000 by Patrick Jordan and Stewart Smith.

The Clark Gable Estate is located in the highly desirable Old Las Palmas neighborhood, and represents one of the desert’s first estate properties. Built in 1925, this 0.6-acre property features a sprawling main home, detached guest house, and a pool house, all of which create the dreamy, ethereal feel of a Spanish hacienda. Adorned with beamed ceilings, decorative Spanish tile in the kitchen and bathrooms, and elegant pink stucco, this vintage estate epitomizes resort-style desert living. A refreshing pool with generous tanning deck is adjoined by the pool house and a vine-covered patio. This classic estate is currently under contract but listing agent Daniel Ferretti is accepting backup offers.
