One of the most awe-inspiring listings to come on the market in recent memory, the Bob and Dolores Hope Estate in Palm Springs, CA has officially been listed with Luxury Portfolio members Patrick Jordan and Stewart Smith of Windermere Real Estate Southern California for an impressive $50 million.
Designed by revered Modernist architect John Lautner, this landmark property is situated within the prestigious Southridge Community. The largest private residence ever designed by Lautner, the Hope property is the ultimate expression of his aesthetic: “The purpose of architecture is to create timeless, free, joyous spaces for all activities of life.” The 23,000 square foot home enjoys magnificent living space with features befitting a “contemporary castle,” as Dolores described the estate. A total of nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms provide ample accommodations for entertaining, as the Hopes frequently played host to friends such as Tony Bennett and Glen Campbell.
Panoramic views overlooking the Coachella Valley and San Jacinto Mountains beyond are emphasized by the home’s dramatic structure. A grand courtyard located in the center of the home under the protection of the undulating roof offers unparalleled outdoor living space. Additional amenities include two swimming pools, one indoor and one outdoor, a tennis court and a putting green.
