Bob Hope's Palm Springs Home

Bob Hope owned a collection of homes in Palm Springs and the L.A. area, and two of them snagged buyers within a month of listing. But the real prize of Hope’s homes is this John Lautner-designed property, an architectural treasure that came to market in late February for $50 million.

Architect John Lautner was well-known for his dramatic designs, and his biggest piece was a custom home for Bob and Dolores Hope. Perched in the private neighborhood of Southridge, the estate dominates a corner lot with sweeping views of the entire Coachella Valley.
