Be the first to see the newly renovated Alexander Estate, known as the House of Tomorrow and popularly as the Elvis Honeymoon Hideaway where Elvis and Priscilla Presley honeymooned in 1967. Located in the historic Vista Las Palmas neighborhood, this extraordinary home was designed in 1960 by architect William Krisel for Helene and Robert Alexander of the Alexander Construction Company. The architect designed in a series of four interconnected circular pods, embodying Krisel’s view that “circles have no edge, you can approach them from anywhere.” Many original and dramatic features have been restored including the terrazzo floors, windows, ceiling mounted fireplaces and the custom circular sofa in the living room.
