Live like Batman in Adam West’s one-time Palm Springs home

It isn’t exactly the bat cave, but a home once owned by ’60′s-era Batman Adam West is on the market in Palm Springs for $1.5 million — a bargain for anyone who aspires to live like a superhero (or an actor who once played a superhero on TV).

Adam West Palm Springs HouseThe 3,189-square-foot home is a modernist’s dream. Built in 1954, the house is situated in Palm Springs’ Old Las Palmas neighborhood, tucked into a mature stand of palm trees and sited next to a spacious kidney-shaped pool flanked by a flagstone patio. The structure features three bedrooms, five baths and floor-to-ceiling walls of windows serving up desert and mountain views.

Per Realtor.com, the home was renovated in 1984 under the direction of modernist Albert Frey and also features a fountain, a master bath with matching marble tubs and a two-car garage.

Not to mention the satisfaction that will come from knowing you’re laying your head in the very spot where Batman once laid down his own masked noggin. West, by the way, received a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars in 2010.

Alas, the house does not include a faithful manservant who will also lay down his life to protect your secret identity.
