The Palm Springs Estate of Bob Hope for Sale for $50M
The former home of comedian Bob Hope and his wife Dolores is currently for sale for $50 million. Acclaimed architect John Lautner designed the house back in 1973. The estate located in Palm Springs was built of concrete, glass and steel and has a very unique shape that resembles a giant mushroom because of the curved roof. However, the home was supposed to be shaped as a volcano. The spacious estate flaunts no less than 23,366 square feet of living space. The Hope family used the estate as an area for entertainment as it was designed to host up to 300 guests for dinner. The ‘mushroom’ house boasts 10 bathrooms, 3 half bathrooms and 6 bedrooms. Amenities include an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool and a tennis court.
