Cary Grant

This pool house was built for Cary Grant – and it’s nestled in a four-acre compound in Palm Beach, California, surrounded by mountains.

He called it “Villa Paradiso,” and the pool house at this eight-bedroom, 14-bathroom, 15,000-square-foot compound in Palm Springs, California, was designed just for Cary Grant, who was just one of several old Hollywood royalty to vacation at the lush abode.
