Elvis fanatics and midcentury design aficionados with a spare $5.65 million will want to turn their attention to Palm Springs. The home where Elvis and Priscilla Presley celebrated their honeymoon, known as the “House of Tomorrow,” just hit the market, according to the Wall Street Journal. The 4,695-square-foot, four-bedroom, five-bathroom structure sports a unique profile made up of four circular sections under a dramatically angular sloped roof, designed by Modernist architect William Krisel, who was known for his innovative tract housing.

The living room is centered around the floating fireplace.

The contemporary-style home was built in 1960 for Bob Alexander, who owned a construction company that developed thousands of homes in Palm Springs and the nearby Vista Las Palmas. At the time, the home was heralded as a landmark representing the future of home design. Its electronic temperature controls and outdoor lighting and sprinkler systems were cutting-edge for the era. In 1962, Look magazine described the structure as a “$300,000 pleasure dome that proves California has only begun to show how luxurious things can be on this planet.”
