Rancho Mirage Estate

July 24, 2011 by  

This is a sale that you will not see again. Imagine! A 22,000 sq. ft. party and entertainment home, guest house and garages displayed with furniture, decorative accessories and art work. The stunning view is phenomenal and set in a horseshoe shaped canyon surrounded by more of the most rugged hills around.

This is the home and possessions of  Stanford Jolley, Academy Award nominated Art Director for Witness with Harrison Ford & Kelly McGillis. Other credits include Caddyshack,  The War Between Men & Women, Young Billy Young,  Phanx among many others.  He was also one of Disneyland’s main designers in the early 1950’s with Walt Disney, Herb Ryman and others. His father, I. Stanford Jolley, was a well-known actor and his  face was regularly seen on the silver screen from the 1930’s to the 1970’s. THERE WILL NOT BE ANY MEMORABILIA OR DISNEY SKETCHES BEING SOLD AT THIS SALE.  Stan is living and now resides in smaller quarters.  Call and leave your name with us to see Stan’s beautiful home and pick up something for your home.
