Old Hollywood in the dreamy dessert
Palm Springs might be mellow, but it's certainly not boring. Take this sexy, sparkly, post-and-beam home which was just listed for $1,495,000. The pool itself is worth the cash. Plus, it has a Boogie-Night-like wet bar. Previously owned by Oscar winner William Holden (remember "The Wild Bunch?"), with a "tongue and groove" ceiling and plenty of glass windows, you can easily leave Hollywood and still find drama.
