In the living room is a grand wood-burning fireplace, a built-in bar and cocktail area, and the late singer’s grand piano perched in one corner. A set of glass sliding doors leads out from the living room to an outdoor dining area with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. A nearby formal dining room has its own private outdoor atrium with a lounge area ideal for sunset cocktails, and according to the listing, the property has five terraces in total.
The kitchen features sleek black marble countertops, and other noteworthy decor accents (some of which will not be included in the sale) include a table in the living room that can be flipped over to become a poker table, and matching busts of the Sinatras. (According to Leonard Rabinowitz of Hilton & Hyland, a listing agent and a longtime friend of the Sinatras, Barbara used to invite celebrity pals including Gregory Peck and Kirk Douglas over for poker nights.)
Before Frank passed away in 1998, he and Barbara primarily split their time between their large Beverly Hills estate and a Malibu beach house, the latter of which was perviously on the rental market for a whopping $110,000 a month, and is now for sale for $12.9 million. They also maintained a Palm Springs getaway that is synonymous with their love story.
Immediately following the musician’s death, Barbara opted to stay in their shared Beverly Hills home. However, when she and a few friends were robbed while walking on a street a few years later, she decided to move to a 24-hour-surveilled condo atop the Ten-Five-Sixty building in Westwood, California. Last fall, a number of cherished items from the Sinatra’s expansive estate went on sale in an auction by Sotheby’s, including a Norman Rockwell painting of Frank that Barbara adored, as well as a number of scripts linked to Frank’s film and music career: ones for Ocean’s 11, On the Town, and From Here to Eternity. Items from Barbara’s impressive jewelry collection were also put up for auction, including her 20-carat engagement ring from Frank.
