Bob Hope was a legendary real estate investor as well as a legendary performer during his 100 years, but no property is so closely associated with the iconic funny man than his Palm Springs mega-mansion.
Designed by famed modernist architect John Lautner and inspired by a volcano, the concrete and steel house has hit the market at a stunning $50 million.
The house, also described as looking like a giant mushroom, has just under 24,000 square feet. There are six bedrooms, 10 baths and three half-baths.
The property is an entertainer’s dream. There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a pond, tennis court and putting green.
Bob and his wife, Dolores Hope, who died eight years after her husband in 2011, could entertainer up to 300 guests at the estate.
The Hopes owned two other Palm Springs properties that are also on the market.
