Celebrity Home of the Week


This week's other homes were so unremarkable (except maybe Kate Hudson's digs), we won't even bother to compare them to this one. Instead, we'll just declare Tony Curtis and the late Janet Leigh's former home our Celebrity Home of the Week (CHOW). What can we say? It's one of our all-time favorite types of homes: mid-century modern. And it's in the middle of one of our favorite mid-century havens: Palm Springs, California.

According to the L.A. Times, the 3204 s.f. home known as "Camp Curtis" is for sale for nearly $1.3 million. Built in 1960, it has five bedrooms (each with its own bathroom), a swimming pool, mountain views, and a separate guesthouse. For you youngsters, Curtis is a legendary film star, appearing in classic films like "Some Like It Hot" and "The Defiant Ones." Leigh, who died in 2004, is best known for her award-winning role in the Hitchcock film, "Psycho." Curtis and Leigh divorced in 1962. They are the parents of actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Kelly Curtis.
