In 1966 Elvis Presley and his new bride leased this futuristic home as their first marital dwelling. Today, it is on the market for $5.9 million.
This beautiful home has been called the “House of Tomorrow”. It has also been called the “House of the Future”. Back in 1966 when the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in his young bride, Priscilla Presley decided to make it home it was as innovative and cutting edge as can be. It is located in picturesque Palm Springs, California.
Though the famous celebrity couple leased the home for $21,000 back in the 60s for one year, it has always been known as their honeymoon hideaway. Undoubtedly, many people have lived in the home since that time. Currently, it is being sold.

This home is genuinely unique. It was designed by the modernist architect, William Krisel. It was also featured in a 1962 edition of Look magazine. Touted as the “House of Tomorrow” it was featured as a shining example of modern architecture. What makes it so? The 5000 square-foot house is built in-the-round. It is a three-level dwelling with four circular living areas.
One curved wall of the abode features peanut-brittle stonework. Rounding out the theme is a round kitchen island along with a round free-standing fireplace in the middle of one of the circular living rooms. The “House of the Future” has five bedrooms along with five bathrooms.
The mid-century modern house is situated on 1.16 acres of land. There is a private garden, tennis court, and an orchard. If you feel like getting wet and wild there is a swimming pool on the grounds as well.
Can you imagine walking through the spacious 5000 square feet and reminiscing about the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll? I love the idea of houses in-the-round. Just the look of it is out of the ordinary and spectacular. When you look out of the window of this home you can see the Santa Rosa Mountains as well as the Coachella Valley.
The marriage between Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley was so interesting because Elvis Presley met Priscilla Presley when she was a 14-year-old. They married seven years later and made the “House of Tomorrow” their first home. They met at an army gathering in Germany. Rumor has it that Elvis Presley never got the young beautiful girl off of his mind. Eventually, when she turned 21, they married and the rest is music history.
Elvis Presley was the self-proclaimed King of Rock ‘n’ Roll due to his prestige as the best selling solo music artist of all time. In addition to selling millions of records, he was also a Hollywood actor who starred in more than 20 films. Since 1956, Elvis Presley has released more than 20 studio albums and several soundtrack albums. His mystique lives on the way past his physical life. Though there was much controversy in his personal and professional life, he is the undisputed King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
