A Malibu home that legendary crooner Frank Sinatra, and his wife Barbara, designed their way, went on the market, four months after being offered as a pricey rental.

The home, listed for $12.9 million was built in 1992 for the Sinatras; Frank Sinatra died in 1998. The couple worked with architect Ted Grenzbach on the design, according to the Los Angeles Times which first reported on the listing.

The home had been listed as a $110,000-per-month rental in July.

It has 5,800 square feet with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms. A master suite has a lounge, fireplace, hair salon, and sauna. Both floors have floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of the ocean across 40 feet of beach frontage. Sinatra frequently entertained famous friends at the home, including actors Jack Lemmon, Gregory Peck, and Dick Van Dyke.

L.A. is steeped in Sinatra history. “Ol’ Blue Eyes” owned a number of homes in the area, including in Palm Desert, Beverly Hills, and Holmby Hills. His haunts are also well known — Dominick’s restaurant in West Hollywood and La Dolce Vita in Beverly Hills, to name just two.

Sinatra’s Beverly Hills property, his last, was combined into one mega lot with two others and developed with an 18,500-square-foot mansion that hit the market last month. [LAT]Dennis Lynch
