DALLAS, TX.- Singer and actor Trini Lopez's practically untouched, 1961-vintage Palm Springs, California, home sold for $2,090,000, Tuesday, April 13, by Heritage Auctions. The sale price is the highest for comparable properties in more than 10 years.

"The family is thrilled with the home's $2+ million sale price," said Nate Schar, Director of Luxury Real Estate for Heritage Auctions. "It is a classic among Palm Springs' Mid-Century homes because it remained virtually untouched since its construction in 1961, which is difficult to say about most other homes of its kind. Trini bought the house in 1968 and lived there for the rest of his life, nearly 60 years, and lovingly preserved the home's original mid-century modern features."

Heritage offered the Lopez home as part of the auctioneer's multi-day series of sales featuring many of the late recording artist's possessions, May 1-2 on The Trini Lopez Collection includes more than 90 lots, among them five of his coveted electric guitars, including Lopez's personally owned and played Deluxe Model Gibson Electric Guitar and a rare Gibson TL-335 Reissue Prototype Electric Guitar. The entire Lopez collection may be viewed on

The home, designed by Dan Palmer and William Krisel, was built by the famed mid-century architectural firm Alexander Construction. It is located in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs, an area once populated by many entertainers and notables.

Popular with Mid-Century Modern enthusiasts, the home defines the Southern California Modernist style with glass, concrete and exposed wood beams. Its modernist designs create seamless indoor/outdoor spaces taking advantage of the dry desert climate and soaring mountain views. The Lopez home, located amid the homes of a list of celebrity neighbors that included Debbie Reynolds, Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin and Kirk Douglas, is just down the street from the infamous "Elvis & Priscilla Presley Honeymoon Hideaway."

Intact original features include many of the original features once found in Alexander homes, like exposed beam ceilings, mirrored walls, patterned masonry and a single-story floor plan that emphasizes blending indoor and outdoor space. The original 1961 pool and spa are also present.
