Frank Sinatra’s Mountain Center getaway — known as Villa Maggio — could be yours for a cool $4 million.

The swanky pad has been put on the market (again) for an asking price of $3,995,000, according to a listing on Realtor.com.

The 6,248-square-foot estate at 70300 San Lorenzo Road has a total of seven bedrooms and 13 baths. The 10-acre property includes the main home, as well as the three-bedroom, five-bathroom guest house and a two-bath, dual-sauna pool house.

“Looking to beat the heat, Sinatra chose the granite mountain plateau above Palm Springs as the ideal locale for his hideout and commissioned architect Ross Patton to design the property, which was completed in 1967,” according to the listing. “Besides acting as his own personal sanctuary, Sinatra is said to have used the chalet to host other members of the Rat Pack, as well as a host of dignitaries and social elite.”

“Highlighted by a its pitched roofline and rough-hewn stone façade, the main home holds true to its postwar America roots with a colorful, mid-century décor.”
