A home in Palm Springs, California, owned in the '70s by Elvis and Priscilla Presley has been sold for $1.25 million. The 5,000-square-foot house, with five bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms, is in the Old Tuscany area of Palm Springs, in the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains.
Considered a historic site by the city, the 1946 house is protected against demolition; any changes to the exterior are subject to planning-department review. The Presleys bought the house in 1970 for $85,000. They were divorced in 1973. The rock star owned it until he died in 1977.
Preserving the exterior may mean maintaining a spa that the King of Rock 'n' Roll had built into an outside corner of his property. The spa is covered by a gazebo, which shielded Elvis from helicopters. The home sits on nearly two residential-zoned hilltop acres with valley views and also has a sauna and a steam room. It was a party house for Elvis.
