Palm Springs Neighborhoods- A Tour Of The Movie Colony

Palm Springs Movie Colony

The Movie Colony is one of the most notable Palm Springs Neighborhoods and the reason is fairly obvious.  It was home to such notables as Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Harry Cohn, and David O. Selznick  (think Gone With the Wind).

Located near Old Las Palmas, the Movie Colony has roughly 170 homes and two parks. Ruth Hardy Park has tennis courts, basketball courts, 2 volleyball courts, 2 play areas for children, plus ample picnic tables and parking. And its a very popular park to bring your dog for a romp. The Wellness Park has a ¼ mile loop for walking or jogging, 5 exercise stations, and four gardens including a meditation garden, healing garden, fragrance garden, and memorial garden.

Take a tour walking or in your car for a peek at some of the best Southern California real estate (yes LA, even for you).  The Movie Colony architectural styles include Spanish villas, mid-century modern (as in much of Palm Springs), and large gated estates having walls covered with colorful Bougainvillea and lush vines.

Since entertaining has always been a major part of the Movie Colony (and Hollywood)  lifestyle, many of the homes in the neighborhood feature private casitas, or guest homes. These large luxurious estates can have as many up to 5 or 6 bedrooms and 6 or more bathrooms allowing each guest their own private space.

Movie Colony streets are lush and tree-lined and include mature palms, fruit trees and lush Bougainvillea. Homes in this Palm Springs neighborhood market range from around $500,00 to $2 million dollars or more. This beautiful neighborhood is walking distance from downtown and centrally located to all Pam Springs activities including hiking, restaurants, the museum and much more.
