Suzanne Somers and her manager husband Alan Hamel have been fantastically successful with her books, clothing lines and gadgets – her Thigh Master is coming up to its 20th anniversary – but real estate, that’s another thing.
The couple has just reduced the asking price on their Palm Springs, CA compound called Les Baux de Palm Springs, to $12.9 million. That’s down an astounding 61 percent from its original $35 million listing 18 months ago.
On 65 acres, the estate is one-of-a-kind with so much rock, stone and adobe brick they employ a full-time stone mason. There are 10 bedrooms, his-and-her offices, two pools and hiking trails.
Coincidentally, Somers’ home was prominently featured this past Monday in a new episode of Bravo’s Kathy Griffin: My Life On The D-List, when Kathy visited Somers at her Palm Springs estate.
The Hamels lost their $5 million Malibu beach front home to fire in 2007. They’re now leasing another nearby house for $30,000 a month while working on rebuilding the destroyed property.
