The modern Palm Springs home built for Bob and Dolores Hope in 1979 has come on the market for the first time at a rumored asking price of $45 million.
The six-bedroom, 22,000-square-foot home, built in stone, steel and concrete and designed by John Lautner, features a mushroom-shaped roof and a boulder that juts out of the living room floor, mydesert.com reported.
Real estate agent David Mossler told mydesert.com the estate on Southridge Drive is listed through Partners Trust of of Beverly Hills for a ”rumored $45 million.”
Lautner, an early apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright and known for his spaceship-like designs, also designed the Elrod house, which is situated just below the Hope’s former home.
The Hope house, which burned while under construction and was rebuilt, is said to have cost about $2 million to build.
The couple moved to the desert in the early 1940s. Bob Hope died in 2003 at age 100, and his wife was 102 when she died last year.
