Inside Movie Colony Real Estate
This central community is the site of some of the oldest homes in Palm Springs. In fact, you'll find construction dates as early as the late 1930s. As the name of this distinctive neighborhood suggests, this area was once the chosen locale of Old Hollywood's most famous. Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, and Dinah Shore all once called this community home.
Properties along these streets may be old, but they have been lovingly maintained and frequently updated over the decades so that they have kept up with the times. One unique feature of this community is the manner in which each estate is enclosed by white stone walls for optimum privacy. Exteriors adopt a diverse range of architecture styles ranging from the clean white lines of the mid-century modern home to the tile-embellished Spanish home, to the relaxed manner of the California Rancher.
Inside, you'll find each home has their own unique character. Some subscribe to an LA loft aesthetic with rough-hewn wood beams by the ceiling, exposed brick walls, and barn doors on sliders. Others are classic Palm Springs with floor-to-ceiling windows, open-concept designs, and an emphasis on white interiors. The design of these homes were built to encourage residents to reconnect with nature. Others embody classic Spanish architecture with warm desert hues and corrugated terracotta rooftops.
