Description

Property unavailable from 3/23/2020-5/31/2020 by city mandate
Formerly ""The Harpo Marx Estate"" by Wallace Neff. Located in Rancho Mirage, one of Hollywood's most iconic luminaries still shines just as brightly today over the Coachella Valley. Legendary film and stage performer Harpo Marx staked claim to a desert homestead, as tranquil and quiet as the superstar himself. This remarkable estate is available for rent exclusively from Vacation Palm Springs.

Nestled across 2.1 landscaped acres in Rancho Mirage, this remarkable 8 bedroom, 10 bathroom, 9,071 sq ft, estate is flanked by some of the most gorgeous mountain views imaginable.

An abundance of vibrant, picturesque details will catch your eye and capture your imagination the instant you enter this gated private retreat. From the tropical lagoon, two sparkling waterfalls and resort size pool; to the lighted tennis court and horse shoe pit, you will feel immersed in a regal setting from first glance.

The dramatic walk up to the home's entryway with its lush landscaping, winding stream and Oriental cross bridge, provides a limitless source of dreamy photo ops.

Once inside, the immense open spaces lined with cool, elegant marble flooring, provide ample enticement for further exploration. Around every corner an exciting new discovery awaits including: 27 ft. vaulted, exposed beam ceilings, a massive wet bar, and verdant, vista views, from walls of glass running the entire length of the plush living room.

A state of the art, commercial grade, high end kitchen with granite counter tops and wine room, provide everything one could possibly need for an intimate, gourmet breakfast or a lavish feast. You will be encapsulated in amenities and your every wish will seemingly be the home's command.

We cordially invite you to cross the double door threshold of your impeccable master bedroom suite, complete with sitting room/office with a plasma TV, crackling fireplace, two additional large screen TV's, cavernous walk-in closet, decadent master bathroom appointed with: spa tub, large walk-in shower, dual sinks and a piece de resistance salon area.

Three more stylish bedrooms can be found in this wing of the main house as well. All perfectly appointed with king beds, private baths, large screen TV's and more. Just off the pool area lies three separate and secluded Casitas each with its own sizable living room, large screen TV, private bedroom (with king bed & large screen TV), and a private bath with walk-in shower. The largest of the three Casitas boasts a private kitchen to boot!

In the east wing of the home you will find a cutting edge media suite that can double as a board room depending on your needs. For convenience, the room sports its own private half bath. Off the media room there is yet another bedroom with full bath, two queen beds, plus a large screen TV. This is an ideal room for any teens who may desire a fun and somewhat separate niche of their own.

The sky is the limit with how you can entertain in this historic treasure. Wow everyone you know with the rich history behind the home, or simply escape and hideout with a few loved ones in a castle fit for one of the most light hearted kings of the silver screen. This is a vacation destination that will not soon be forgotten! In homage to the home's legendary first owner, might we suggest downloading some of the beautiful music that harpist Harpo recorded throughout his career. What better way to celebrate such a unique and beloved home! According to Harpo's dear friend and American comedy writer Nat Perrin:

Harpo was an imp, on and off stage Harpo used to play golf at Tamarisk Country Club. He'd wear his swimming shorts. There were houses, lining the course, and everyone had a swimming pool. Harpo would play a little golf. Then, he'd jump in someone's pool, cool off, play some more golf, and then jump in someone else's pool. If you heard a splash, it was Harpo. Harpo wasn't really making an effort to be liked. Harpo was genuinely likable, lovable and pixieish.

Located in the upscale community of Rancho Mirage, The Hollywood Celebrity Estate served as a private oasis for the actor and his family for over two decades. Set within the private Tamarisk Country Club, the home was commissioned by Marx in 1956. Acclaimed mid-century architect to the stars, Wallace Neff, was charged with the task of forging the perfect desert compound for the whimsical celebrity.

The magnificent Former Harpo Marx Estate (lovingly dubbed ""El Rancho Harpo""), stands today as an official historical landmark. This property was approved as a Rancho Mirage Historical Resource in 2007, per its outstanding architectural merit and historic personage. The Marx Brothers are credited as the founding members of the Tamarisk Country Club.

A time, a place, the home of laughter and light. Formerly The Harpo Marx Estate by Wallace Neff (c)1956. Magic Estate La Paz presented by MAGIC JANTHONY PROPERTIES.

Pool/spa heat is added upon request at an additional charge.

This property goes on forever! Lots of space and so many entertainment areas. And is extremely private. Between the pool, bbq areas, tennis courts and multiple living areas we had so much space. I would recommend this home to anyone getting together with a large family. We will be back again. So much fun!
