Consider this rock and roll history for a premium! The Alexander Residence, where Elvis and Priscilla Presley famously spent their honeymoon, has sold after just six weeks on the market—and for full asking price!
Designed by architect William Krisel in 1967, the home has traded hands for $5.65 million. Known for its spaceship-like dynamic winged roof line, the property encompasses four circular pods with the center of the house fanning out from the dramatic stepped waterfall. The home has been restored with original architectural details of stone and poured terrazzo floors.
Boasting four bedrooms and five bathrooms across nearly 4,700 square feet of living space, the entry path through carved-wood double height entry doors ushers you to a sunken party pad of angular stacked stoned walls, glass and a low-slung curved upholstered banquet. A raised dining platform unfolds seamlessly through a wall of glass to the expansive exterior terracing, pool and mountain views.
The adjacent kitchen continues the circular theme with a round center island featuring a twin of the living room fireplace hood and an open concept design. The primary suite is reached via a grand staircase to a private glassed perch featuring panoramic views. A generous dressing room/bathroom is concealed by original built-in wardrobe closets centered around a circular tub, and an intimate balcony is accessible allowing for a discrete observation deck.
