Cary Grant Estate In Palm Springs: Las Palomas

Via LA Times: Actor Cary Grant named his Palm Springs estate "Las Palomas" when he moved into the home in the mid-1950s with his third wife, fellow actress Betsy Drake. By 1972, when Grant moved out of Las Palomas, he had divorced Drake and married and divorced Dyan Cannon (with whom he had a daughter). According to the official listing, Grant's home was "built as a literal copy of a 19th-century Andalusian Spanish Farmhouse" in the 1920s. The 6,000 square-foot home has six bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and a pool. It has seen a $2 million price reduction since it was last listed in 2008.

Just this year, the estate was designated as a historic site by the Palm Springs City Council. KPSP reports that this came after an eleven year, multi-million dollar restoration of the home by owner Dr. Jane Cowles Smith. Popeater quotes Smith about the restoration process:

"Sometimes when I was uncertain about how to resolve one issue or the other, I asked myself, 'What would Cary do?' It took a lot of patience to be true to the materials and workmanship of the house, as well as find period furnishings."
