Discover Little Tuscany
Located on large, private lots, the homes in Little Tuscany are removed from the city center, yet only five minutes from the heart of Palm Springs and the restaurants, galleries and nightlife found there.
A neighborhood inspired by the desert landscape around it, the houses in this community incorporate the large boulders characteristic of the local geography into their homes and yards. Impressive boulders can be found grouped into unique privacy fences or incorporated into the exteriors of the homes themselves.
The majority of these houses were built in the 1950s and 1960s by celebrities who were escaping the buzz of Los Angeles in favor for a relaxing weekend getaway in a rural desert paradise. Many of these houses feature unique design elements of the time, and each one was custom built to reflect the passions and personal tastes of the original owner. Over the years, figures such as Elvis Presley, Robert Young, Frederick Loewe, and Magda Gabor have made this community their home.
Part of the appeal of this fantastic neighborhood is the fact that these estates are often situated on lots that measure an acre or more in size. Surrounded by privacy walls and acres of undeveloped desert, these homes offer a rural feeling and plenty of privacy.
This neighborhood features a mixture of architectural styles, including mid-century modern homes, Spanish-style haciendas, Mediterranean estates, and ultra-modern marvels. These homes are generally quite large and many still feature historic interiors that have been lovingly restored to their full glory. With such a variety of styles, Little Tuscany has luxury estates that suit every taste.
