For Sale: Gable and Lombard's Former Palm Springs Estate
The pink stucco home once shared by leading man Clark Gable and actress Carole Lombard is for sale in Palm Springs. The four-bedroom, six-bath home is owned film producer Joel Douglas, as was reported by the Los Angeles Times; his father is Kirk Douglas and brother is Michael Douglas,
The mustachioed Hollywood legend lived in the estate in the Las Palmas neighborhood during his brief marriage to Lombard, who died in a 1942 plane crash. The two were married in 1939, Gable's third of five marriages.
Built in 1925, the charming home (see the slideshow below) has more than 3,000 square feet and has been restored. It has beamed ceilings and decorative Spanish tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. The pool adjoins a vintage-style pool house with French doors to a vine-covered patio, and the half-acre lot also includes a separate guesthouse.
It is offered furnished, complete with a pool table built for Kirk Douglas, for $2.195 million. It last sold in 2003 for $965,000.
