Hot Property: The Palm Springs ranch at Gene Autry sells for $ 7 million

Palm Springs has just seen the highest sales this year. “Rancho Autry,” an impressive plantation owned by the late cowboy Gene Autry, recently exchanged hands for $ 7 million.

Not only is it high for 2020, but records show it is also one of the most valuable sales in the history of the resort city. Other blockbuster deals include the sale of a $ 13 million Modernist Bob Hope home and the post-and-beam Midcentury sale built for actor Laurence Harvey.

This is one of many properties purchased by Autry and his wife, Jackie, throughout Southern California. As well as having a Los Angeles Angels baseball team for 36 years, their other holdings include TV stations, several radio stations, Palm Springs hotels, Midcentury condos, and large Encino houses which are then sold to “Survivor” host Jeff Probst.

They paid $ 2.05 million for this one in 1997, and Autry died a year later. Set on half a hectare of land in Old Las Palmas, the fenced mansion stretches for 13,400 square feet and also includes a guest apartment, tennis court and glass mosaic swimming pool nestled between parks, palm trees and drought-tolerant landscaping.

Entering through the porte-cochere, the main house holds seven bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, and five fireplaces spread over one floor. Wooden floors, arched doors, coffered ceilings and ceilings adorn the common space, which includes a green-yellow kitchen and a spacious living room.

For dining, there is a formal dining room under a beamed ceiling, a casual dining room that is lined with French doors and a breakfast room like a solarium. Master suite room in the sauna and steam bath.

Outside, the 1920s house wraps around a central courtyard complete with loggias, lounges, swimming pools, spas, and mountain views. A three-car garage, plus an original one-car garage, complete this property.

Louise Hampton of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services California Properties held the listing, according to a press release. James Gault from Bennion Deville Homes represents the buyer. The house hit the market earlier this year of $ 8.25 million.

Autry has television shows with his name from 1950 to 1956 and in a number of films. His signature song, “Back in the Saddle Again,” was used in the 1939 film “Rovin ‘Tumbleweeds” and was the theme song for his radio program, which ran from 1940 to 1956. His biggest hit song was “Rudolph the Red-Deer-nosed Reindeer.”

Earlier this year, his widow, Jackie, sold Riverside Country horse farms for $ 550,000, The Times previously reported.
