Vista Las Palmas is a lovely, centrally located Palm Springs CA neighborhood set against the mountains, just north of The Village, our downtown area. After the success enjoyed by the George Alexander Construction Company in building the sub-division of Twin Palms, George and his son moved on to create the neighborhood of Vista Las Palmas during the late1950’s and early 60’s. The homes for sale in Vista Las Palmas are almost all Mid-Century in design, with a few in the “Swiss Miss” design thrown in.
The neighborhood of Vista Las Palmas boasts a roster of Hollywood stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Elisabeth Taylor, “rat pack” regulars like Dean Martin, Sammie Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and others, along with movers and shakers such as the prolific writer Sydney Sheldon, and American fast food pioneer and co-founder of the MacDonald’s golden arches hamburger chain, Maurice James “Mac” MacDonald.
