Oscar-Winning “Black Panther” Designer’s Set Piece

Jay Hart, the Academy Award-winning production designer, lists stunning contemporary Palm Springs estate


Hollywood set decorator Jay Hart, whose hits have included one of this year’s Oscar-winners, Marvel Comics’ “Black Panther,” has just listed his Palm Springs home of seven years which in its own right is considered an award winner. The property is listed by the TTK Represents group of HK Lane, the exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in the area.

Hart, who was also nominated for his work on  “L.A. Confidential” and “Pleasantville,” has also worked on such hits as “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Spider-Man 2,” “Punch-Drunk Love,” and “Fight Club.”

The set decorator’s impeccably appointed estate, in excess of 4,100 square feet, is located in the exclusive Little Tuscany enclave of Palm Springs, and is distinguished by its spacious, open-plan design that capitalizes on a luminous central courtyard and swimming pool. This corner-lot home also boasts an expansive backyard—virtually another lot unto itself—of pure desert landscaping. The home is elevated to take advantage of panoramic desert and mountain views, and features a fully separated one-bedroom guest house with its own entry, making the property a true compound.

The house is approached through a sleekly designed porte cochere, notable for its smooth earth-tone finishes. Entering the home, visitors first encounter the magnificent courtyard, whose centerpiece is a nostalgic neon sign for The Night Owl Café, which is a key prop from another of Hart’s Oscar nominated films, “L.A. Confidential” (1997).

 COURTYARD ENTRY NIGHT

 POOL COURTYARD FROM FRONT DOOR NIGHT
The courtyard entry features a swimming pool and lively film prop from “L.A. Confidential.”

The pool area then leads to a magnificent great room with vaulted ceilings and dramatic Asiatic statuary and appointments. Throughout, crisp white walls and newly installed charcoal-gray flooring characterize the living space, making it ideal for the display of paintings, sculpture, and objets d’art.

 LIVING ROOM ANGLED TO MASTER BEDROOM AND VIEW
Vaulted ceilings dominate the home’s main living spaces, which are punctuated by gleaming white walls and charcoal-gray floors and accents.

The adjacent dining room is essentially a partitioned extension of the vaulted-ceilinged living room, and enjoys views of the desert and mountains beyond.

 DINING ROOM TO LIVING ROOM HALL AND VIEW
The airy dining room accommodates 10 guests comfortably and enjoys a splendid view.

Nearby, a spacious master bedroom combines an office area, hearth, and dazzling master bathroom in seamless unison. The bathroom’s expansive walk-in shower is newly rebuilt and is appointed with huge slabs of marble.

 MASTER BEDROOM REVERSE FROM OFFICE WINDOW
The master bedroom transitions seamlessly into an office space and sumptuous master bath.

In addition to the master bedroom, the estate offers two more bedrooms, one located in the stand-alone guest house in the rear of the property, whose additional lot lends a special touch of desert landscaping to the surroundings.

With dramatic vistas of the desert sweeps and palm-silhouetted skylines, Hart’s stylish home may even have beaten Hollywood odds: at nighttime, from the courtyard, true stargazing cannot be matched by Tinseltown, making this stunningly self-contained residence its own private Wakanda.
