Pulitzer Prize-winner selling cool Palm Springs home

A Palm Springs compound owned by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Herman Wouk has come on the market at $2.495 million.

The stone-walled house, built in the 1940s, was once a retreat of actors Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood. One could say a lot of character has developed here during the decades. Massive fireplaces, carved wood doors, beamed ceilings and deep loggias give the place a romantic vibe.

In addition to the five-bedroom main house of about 5,000 square feet, there’s a three-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse. The 6,943 square feet of living space include nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The wet bar is designed for entertaining, and the sky-lighted kitchen has two separate cooking areas.

The gated 1.6-acre property has a swimming pool, a tennis court and parking for a dozen cars.
