Original home of ‘Davy Crockett’ actor for sale in California at $1.975M. Take a look

A California home originally owned by Hollywood actor Fess Parker — who was known for portraying the titular characters in Walt Disney’s “Davy Crockett’‘ and “Daniel Boone” television shows — is for sale for $1.975 million.

Parker was also the founder of the Fess Parker Winery in Los Olivos, California.

The exquisite two-bedroom, three-bathroom Fess Parker Estate unfolds on nearly a spectacular half-acre lot at 2514 South Toledo Ave. in the coveted Indian Canyons neighborhood of Palm Springs with mountain views all around.

“A true trophy property rarely comes on the market in Palm Springs, but this is one of those times,” listing agent Tim Krubsack of Compass said in a statement. “Offering the ultimate in privacy and amazing views, the Fess Parker Estate is a stunning residence due to both its interior and exterior features. The home is offered at a very competitive price point.”

Krubsack, a Hollywood producer, is also the seller, according to Compass.

The interior living areas, which span 2,097 square feet, feature a light, clean and simple design, soaring ceilings, sliding glass walls and clerestory windows that frame wonderful views of the San Jacinto Mountains. The modern and spacious primary bedroom and bathroom were recently remodeled.

The grounds have a vast, lush lawn and are encircled by high hedges with 39 palm trees and two olive trees. The open yard comes with a pool, decking and sliders that were all redone in 2022 to give the midcentury modern home a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, according to Compass. The home was originally built in 1974.

A guest bedroom “offers a unique layout,” according to the property listing, with indoor and outdoor showers, and a powder room with a huge window that offers a spectacular view of the garden, which has been featured in Palm Springs Life magazine.

Fess Parker played the roles of real-life frontiersmen Davy Crockett in the 1950s and Daniel Boone in the 1960s. The television show “Davy Crockett” led to a coonskin cap craze among kids. An estimated 5,000 caps were sold each day at the peak of the frenzy. Crockett merchandise, from wristwatches to lunch boxes, accounted for $300 million in sales, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The actor died in 2010 at the age of 85.
