SINATRA LAIR

Spy Vibers, I'm on a mission and look forward to sharing photographs with you from all the major filming locations from the great 1960s series like The Prisoner, The Avengers, The Saint, and many more. Stay tuned! I'll try to post updates en route. In the meantime, check out a Spy Vibe classic that may have slipped off the radar. Looking for a luxury lair to rent for your next secret rendezvous? If Ian Fleming's GoldenEye estate is already booked in Jamaica, consider lounging at Frank Sinatra's Twin Palms in California. Designed in 1947 by E. Stewart Williams, this Mid-Century Modern estate sports a swanky living room area with Sinatra's original home recording outfit by Valentino Electronics of Hollywood, a piano-shaped pool, and four luxury master and guest rooms for your agents and minions. The house has been restored with vintage designer furnishings and memorabilia and has been featured in Architectural DigestTown and CountryThe Travel Channel, and many other media outlets. The Sinatra House is situated in the Movie Colony neighborhood of Palm Springs, where Sinatra lived for ten years. Living it up like Ol' Blue Eyes doesn't come cheap, however, so consider booking after world domination. Rental info here. Below are contemporary images from the official site, where you can compare with vintage photos from Sinatra's time. More about Twin Palms here.
