Recently, Dicaprio purchased the former home of famous singer and entertainer of the 40s and 50s, Dinah Shore for 5.2 million. Located in the Old Las Palmas section of Palm Springs and designed by Donald Wexler in 1965; the 7,022 square ft, 1.34 acre home includes six bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, a tennis court, and a separate pool.
Listing details from the agent: Designed by architect Donald Wexler for Dinah Shore in 1964, this legendary tennis estate defines timeless architecture. The 1.3 acre property offers a rare opportunity to experience a piece of architecture and design that embodies the enjoyment of past, present and future. Extensive renovations have been done to bring the interiors current while honoring the original style of the home. This mid-century modern property embraces the beauty of the environment by commingling the interior and exterior space, while using materials Wexler might have used if available to him during the original construction. This multi leveled single story mansion includes walls of floor to ceiling glass which frames views of the verdant back yard and the magnicant mountains beyond.
