Meridith Baer Home Staged Estate of Silent Film Star and Former Palm Springs Mayor Charlie Farrell
The longtime estate of silent film star and former Palm Springs Mayor Charlie Farrell is on the market, staged to sell by Meridith Baer Home!
Farrell rose to fame starring opposite Janet Gaynor in the hit movie “7th Heaven.” Four years and many films later, he moved to Palm Springs, opening its elite Racquet Club with fellow actor Ralph Bellamy and eventually becoming mayor.
Farrell’s Spanish Colonial Revival mansion was built in 1933 in the desert city’s exclusive Movie Colony neighborhood, where stars such as Cary Grant, Dinah Shore, Jack Benny, Marilyn Monroe, and Al Jolson have also kept homes.
Featuring a main house, attached casita, and second house, the designated historic property is unique for both its luxurious expanse and its Old World style, often hard to find in Palm Springs, which tends to favor a midcentury modern aesthetic.
We furnished the home in a timeless, elegant style befitting its architecture, with a traditional European focus peppered with more transitional art and accents.
We staged the $3,698,900 listing for Dave Kibbey, Sotheby’s International Realty.
The home and its sale were recently featured in the Palm Springs Desert Sun, part of the USA Today network:Read the Feature
