Elvis Presley’s “Honeymoon House of Tomorrow” hits the market for $5,6M

Designed by William Krisel in 1960, the Palm Springs property features a futuristic shape that earned it the title of “House of Tomorrow”. It gained fame after Presley spent his honeymoon here. 

The house in Palm Springs, California, where Elvis Presley celebrated in 1967 his honeymoon was put on sale for $5.6 million. The house was designed by William Krises in 1960 for Robert and Helene Alexander of the famous Alexander Construction Company. In 1962, magazines called it “the House of Tomorrow”, because of its dynamic design.

The 4,695 square feet house – with four bedrooms and five baths – is located in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood and surrounded by a lot of 0.48 acres with a pool. The roof profile is reminiscent of a minimalist spaceship, which covers four spaces characterized by circular shapes. The entrance path – consisting of circles and rectangles suspended on an artificial stream with a pebble bed – leads to a large double-height carved wooden door. The materials that characterize the internal spaces are glass, stone, steel and wood. The living room is characterized by a large steel fireplace, composed of a dark lower part similar of a brazier and an overhead hood in the form of a large white funnel.
