OG diva Zsa Zsa Gabor passed away this Sunday at the age of 99. Remembrances of Gabor have touched on her risqué sense of humor, her openness about her love life, and her taste for extravagance. This latter trait is reflected in her Southland homes; there’s the $13 million Bel Air mansion that was built by Howard Hughes and once housed Elvis Presley, and there’s the less-ostentatious home Gabor once owned in Palm Springs as a weekend getaway.

The property—built in the mid-century modern style of many a Palm Springs home—is the very sight of desert leisure, what with its kidney-shaped swimming pool, backyard firepit, wall-to-wall windows, and smatterings of palm trees and cacti. Gabor owned it during the the 1960s, according to the real estate listing.

The property was listed 12 days ago, before Gabor’s death, and is currently asking for a cool $969,000. The house includes two baths and two bedrooms. While (relatively) modest in scope, the stylings have been maximized for their intended effect. As noted by the realtor in the listing, “this home exemplifies the relationship of architecture and its surroundings. This home allows one to feel a part of their landscape with views in every direction. The simplicity of form and walls of glass allow the natural landscape to take center stage.”
