Tucked into the charming avenues of Palm Springs, Deepwell Estates is a small neighborhood community boasting beautiful one-story estates outfitted in nostalgic Hollywood glam.

Among the celebrities who have owned homes in Deepwell include actor William Holden, Loretta Young, Hugh Hefner, Carmen Miranda, and Liberace.

On a private tour during modernism week, the WTTgirls had a chance to view some of the most iconic homes in the community. Our guide was a member of the Palm Springs Historical Society and gave a stunning history lesson on the founding of Deepwell Estates.

Some of our favorite highlights included a private tour by the architect of a mid-century inspired home, Carmen Miranda’s pool, and crashing an open house of a 1950s-era home.

You can start your own walking tour on the corner of Mesquite and Manzanita off Hwy 111 in Downtown Palm Springs.
