Calling all Elvis impersonators: The Palm Springs, Calif. home where the famed musician spent his honeymoon will hit the market for $9.5 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. The property is currently a museum that displays Elvis memorabilia, but beyond the collection, the 5,500-square-foot spread features a pool and tennis court.

Presley rented the digs for a year beginning in 1966, paying a total of $21,000. He celebrated his May 1967 wedding to then-wife Priscilla at the property. The home was built in 1960, comes with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, and sits atop roughly 1.25 acres.

Josh and Matt Altman — together the Altman Brothers at Hilton & Hyland — have the listing.

A Boston-based investor named M.L. Lewis, who is a reported “Elvis junkie,” has owned the home since 1989. Lewis doesn’t live there, but he restored it with period touches to give it a true ’60s look.

“It’s literally a time capsule of Elvis,” Josh Altman told the Journal. “When I walked into the house, I was all shook up.” [WSJ, 2nd item] — Zachary Kussin
