Say what you will about Cary Grant's acting... but in his day he reflected the image of the classic debonair leading man during Hollywood's Golden years...a by gone era of contract studio actors and actresses. These were the days of image and illusion about who people really were and who the studios portrayed them to be. Everybody had a pseudonym even Archibald Leach. Surprisingly Grant's 1927 Palm Springs hideaway, now up for sale, seems very real and unpretentious. Grant named the house Los Palomas and it still maintains it's original hand made terracotta roof tiles, thick white washed walls, and hand painted Talavera Spanish floor tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The 6,000 sq. ft. 6 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath Spanish farmhouse sits on 1 1/2 acres on a tree lined street in the Movie Colony neighborhood... asking price... $4,995,000.
