Liberace’s House

Apr 9th, 2008 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

This weekend, while visiting the desert, and thanks to my friend EJ at the Movieland Directory, I got to stalk Liberace’s former Palm Springs manse. His home is an absolutely beautiful Mediterranean estate and there is no doubt whatsoever that it once belonged to Liberace. Besides the large candelabra located in front of the house, there are several “L’s” strategically placed throughout the exterior of the property – including on the garage doors, in the driveway, and in mosaic tiles in the cement in front of the side door.

Before becoming Liberace’s home, the estate was a Palm Springs motel. Liberace named it “The Cloisters” as it reminded him of a monastery. The home was quite ornately decorated in Liberace’s day – he even had a “Safari Room” – and you can see pictures of the interior here. While you can’t tour this home, if you are dying to see the inside of it, you can see a re-creation of Liberace’s bedroom at the Liberace Museum in Las Vegas. Sadly, this Palm Springs home is where Liberace lived his final days. He passed away on February 4, 1987.

Until next time, Happy Stalking! :)

Stalk It: Liberace’s Palm Springs house is located at 226 W. Alejo Road, right on the corner of Alejo Road and North Belardo. The house is just a few blocks away from Frank Sinatra’s house.

    I visit the museum every year! There are always new exhibits and the wonderful world of my all time favorite performer, Liberace is everywhere! I hope this museum goes on and on!

    Two years ago I visited the Liberace Museum in Vegas and was completely astonished! It is really a “don’t miss” in Vegas, and one of those nice surprises you seldom experience. There even is a performer who puts on a short show! And the price is right; I believe we only paid $12.50 per person. What a deal!

  3. Thanks so much for the nice mention about the Liberace Museum here in Las Vegas.

    You probably know, that the Museum exists to help fulfill Liberace generous legacy of support for the arts. His Foundation has granted more than $5million to over 2,500 students in the creative and performing arts (including actors!)

    Stop by the Museum next time you are in Vegas and say hello.
