Nestled in the heart of The Movie Colony neighborhood, Sand Acre is a circa1933 Spanish Estate situated on a coveted one-acre in-town lot. Rumored to have been frequented by Marilyn Monroe, it is noted to be where she and Joe DiMaggio often spent time together while in Palm Springs.
Elegant, secluded, and stately, Sand Acre is one of the Grande dames of The Movie Colony. Walled and gated for the utmost privacy, guests are greeted with fifteen-foot tall Spanish wooden gates, which open onto the cobblestone motor court. Vast lawn, abundant fruit trees, private tennis court and stunning views of the rugged San Jacinto Mountains rising from... the west welcome guests to this Palm Springs estate
A large plank and iron front door opens into the Great Room, with exposed beam and rafter ceilings paying homage to the properties heritage. Abundant comfortable seating makes this space ideal for conversation, reading, or general relaxation. A formal Dining Area is located off of the Great Room, situated adjacent to the updated Chef’s Kitchen. The oversized round dining table will seat up to eight guests with ease, perfect for casual or more formal dining
The large Chef’s Kitchen is recently updated with a full-suite of stainless steel appliances including a Viking Professional Gas Range. Thoughtfully appointed, this space is sure to inspire culinary creativity of any level, from a casual lunch to an elegant dinner. A Breakfast Bar also provides additional seating for casual conversation during meal preparations, or enjoying a quick meal. Adjacent to the Kitchen is a Media Space, with 43” Flat Screen TV, in-home media, fireplace, and four comfortable overstuffed club chairs
Sand Acre features five guest quarters, each with en-suite baths. The Master Suite offers a King sized bed; Flat Screen TV and en-suite bath with dual vanities, soaking tub, and shower. The First and Second Guest Quarters are interconnected- The First Guest Quarters features a King sized bed, Flat Screen TV and en-suite bath with shower and Second Guest Quarters, a Queen sized bed, Flat Screen TV and en-suite bath with shower. The Fourth Guest Quarters feature a Full sized bed and en-suite bath with shower. The Fifth Guest Quarters is located in the “tower”, rumored to be where Marilyn Monroe stayed. It features a Queen sized bed, Flat Screen TV and en-suite bath with tub/shower combination
Sand Acre is surrounded by stunning manicured grounds for guests to explore, with expansive lawn, a private tennis court and producing fruit trees throughout. The in-ground Pool and Spa feature an oversized patio area, poolside cabana, and multiple chaise lounges, ideal for an afternoon relaxing in the sun. A large covered patio is accessible off of the Kitchen and Great Room, and features an outdoor dining area, built in barbeque grill and fireplace
Marrying the notion of contemporary luxury with the opulence of this properties historic era was the essence of the extensive renovation of picturesque Sand Acre. The Movie Colony Neighborhood is rich in history and lore, yet is still a short drive to the most popular attractions in Palm Springs, including fine dining, culture, and nightlife of Palm Canyon Drive.

I was surprised that the kitchen did not have pot holders or extra towels in the kitchen. Everything else was in good order. The furniture in the family room would need a good cleaning the chairs had stains on them. The door handle in one of the bedrooms fell off and the guests had to go outside by the carriage house to get back in. Other than that we had a wonderful time - Barbara B., California, USA

I was concerned when we were handed over to another company on the ground in Palm Springs. I would give Homesrun a score of 3 on a scale of 5. There were a number of problems with the house - flood, master shower head didn\'t work properly, a misrepresentation of one of the bedrooms (One large bedroom was a converted garage room that you could only enter through another bedroom). This is NOT mentioned in the literature. Main conceriege for our house went on vacation and we were left with a guy who had only been on the job for a few months. Does not know much about Palm Springs. Very nice however, found our granddaughters necklace and mailed it back to her which was very nice. Generally speaking, the interior of Sandacre could use an update. It is really a 3 bedroom house. The garage bedroom has a huge gap running along the bottom of the garage door that can allow critters in the house. The kitchen appliances are great. - Lynn G., New York, USA

Property is magnificent.Having a private tennis court and pool made for the best vacation ever! There are,however,a few leaks that I feel must have been known by the owner and not adressed.Other than a few small issues-the place was well tended and,in short,heavenly! - Deirdre D., Oregon, USA
