Leonardo DiCaprio has found what could be the perfect place to hang after the Oscars.

The Oscar nominee, 39, who shot Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street back-to-back, has said he’ll be taking some time off this year from making movies – and, perhaps to prove it, he has a swanky new California desert pad to relax in.

A trust linked to DiCaprio has purchased a 1.34-acre estate in the Old Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs for $5.2 million, it was first reported by the Desert Sun newspaper and Real Estalker.

Once owned by popular ’40s and ’50s singer (and 1970s TV talk-show host) Dinah Shore, the 7,000-sq.-ft. midcentury home has six bedrooms, 7½ bathrooms and boasts a pool house, tennis court with a glass pavilion and a detached gym.

The multi-leveled, single story mansion, designed by noted architect Donald Wexler, was built in 1965 and has since been fully renovated, though still reflects its original style.

DiCaprio has been on something of a real-estate frenzy recently, having snapped up a home in New York’s Greenwich Village last year and selling his seven-bedroom Malibu beach home in December. That one went for $17.35 million.
