Summer Wind

Imagine enjoying the Summer Wind on this lovely patio of the Farralone Estate. Completed in 1951, this is a beautiful example of modern architecture of the era. The Chatsworth, CA estate is on the market, priced at $12 million.”Sinatra rented the estate for nearly a decade, starting in the 1950s, during his Rat Pack years. He occupied the 10,000-square foot, four bedroom main house, which touts 16 foot walls of glass curtains and a 50 foot swimming pool just outside. The estate also boasts a 1,000-square foot, one bedroom guest house with a small pool of its own. Sinatra used to sublet the guesthouse to his friend: a blonde actress by the name of Marilyn Monroe. The swimming pool is alleged to be the site of one of the blonde bombshell’s last photo shoots, and more interestingly, the guesthouse is believed to be the alleged meeting spot for the late Monroe and President Jack Kennedy’s notorious reported affair.” Forbes The home was designed by Pereira & Luckman, architects famous for the Los Angeles International Airport and Pereira specifically for the Kennedy Center’s Studio Theater and the Transamerica Pyramid Building.
