Mid-Century Masterpiece Hits the Market For the First Time Since 1958

A stunning 1950s villa in Palm Springs, Calif., has hit the market for the first time since it was built in 1958. The house is listed at $8.85 million, and because the furniture was chosen so meticulously to match the property it’s included in the sale price. The 3,000-square-foot mansion has come to be known as Bougain Villa, after the bougainvillea flowers that surround it. Situated on a sprawling 1.3-acre lot within a gated community in the California desert, the 3-bedroom house is considered a one-of-a-kind piece of art that couldn’t be replicated today. The property also includes three carports, a hot tub, a wine cellar, rock walls, and even a koi pond. A sprawling balcony extends the living areas of the house to outside, and there’s also a gigantic rectangular pool.
