By Dave Ware

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, with films grossing over 7.2 billion dollars worldwide. He’s won an Academy Award, three Golden Globes, and ranks in the world’s highest-paid actors list. DiCaprio is also known for dating supermodels and enjoying the kind of lavish lifestyle that few can afford. He has also taken a shine to real estate, owning properties in the Hollywood Hills, Malibu, Battery Park New York, Los Feliz, an island in Belize, and a stunning property in Palm Springs. Many people reach out to ask, “Can I go inside Leonardo DiCaprio’s home in Palm Springs?” The short answer is… yes. For a price.

Where Does Leonardo DiCaprio Live in Palm Springs?

Leonardo’s Palm Springs getaway was initially built for American singer, actress, and television personality Dinah Shore. The house was built in 1964 by legendary Palm Springs architect Donald Wexler (who also designed the Palm Springs International Airport. Wexler was known for his use of steel rather than wood for framing material, finding it better suited for construction in the desert.  DiCaprio reportedly paid $5.32 million in 2014, and while the property is typically used as a rental property, DiCaprio occasionally uses the home himself.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s home is situated on 1.3 acres in Old Las Palmas, ideally located with access to all that Palm Springs has to offer while secluded enough to keep the noise and bustle away. It’s within walking distance from art galleries, theatres, restaurants, clubs, and other upscale experiences.

The property is surrounded by privacy walls and boasts a heated swimming pool and full-sized tennis court. It also boasts a spa, sauna, and terraces to enjoy the view of the San Jacinto mountains.

The home itself features six bedrooms with seven and a half bathrooms. It has a large dining room, a kitchen any chef would drool over, and walls made from floor-to-ceiling glass. The ceilings are wood, with stainless steel floors and a foyer wall of genuine stone. There’s also a separate one-bedroom guest house on the property, as well as a spacious casita directly off the tennis court.

The living room is fully updated with the latest gadgets, including a TV that hides in the ceiling, and the kitchen is massive with  plenty of cooking utensils and appliances. The fenced exterior backyard of the home is also beautiful and private, featuring a bar, a pool, a tennis court, a 1-bedroomguest suite, and firepits all around for guests who want to socialize outdoors on chilly desert evenings.
