Bob and Dolores Hope's Palm Springs Estate Gets a $16 Million Price Chop
The asking price of Bob and Dolores Hope's iconic Palm Springs estate has been dropped from $50 million to $34 million. The sprawling, 23,366-square-foot John Lautner-designed home originally came to market as a private listing in March of 2013 and was heralded as the desert's most expensive single-family home.
Now the distinctive house, with its curved concrete lines, open courtyard and living room built to accommodate a boulder that juts into the room, will be listed on the Multiple Listing Service to attract a wider audience, according to The Desert Sun.
Perched atop the Southridge neighborhood, the six-bedroom, 10-bathroom concrete, steel and glass house features indoor and outdoor pools, a tennis court, putting greens and murals by painter Garth Benton, who also created murals at the Getty Villa.
The home, which was used as a second residence by the Hopes, where they entertained frequently, was the largest residence ever designed and built by Lautner.
Patrick Jordan and Stewart Smith of Windermere Real Estate in Palm Springs have the listing.
