Cancel any upcoming flights to the moon, because living in Frank Sinatra's Rat Pack home is a great reason to stay on Earth.

Named "Villa Maggio," Sinatra's hideaway from Hollywood is on the market for $3.9 million. The Palm Desert, California home was a spot where Sinatra and fellow Rat Pack members Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop would hang out and get some R&R from their fans in a private location.

"Sinatra referred to himself as an '18-karat manic depressive' which was carefully hidden from the public," according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. "He was always torn between wanting a solitary place to escape but also somewhere to party with his friends and distract from the depression days."

Built in 1967, the compound rests 4,300 feet above Palm Springs and the serene Coachella Valley. The main house on the 10-acre compound has three buildings, seven fireplaces, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. The compound also includes spacious guest quarters, a pool house with two saunas and a mini-kitchen, and a private helipad for any guests who want to make a quick fly-in.

From left to right, "Rat Pack" members Peter Lawford, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Frank Sinatra are shown in the 1960 movie "Ocean's Eleven."


The home "may have the strongest connection to the real Sinatra, built to his personal specifications to satisfy his unique inner needs," according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. The current owner's family were friends of Sinatra and are the only ones who've lived at the home since the famous crooner.
