Reduced Price For Elvis Presley’s Honeymoon Hideway in Palm Springs

Elvis Presley’s home in Palm Springs where he and his wife Priscilla enjoy honeymoon is back on the market, but now with reduced price of $6.93 million – a 27% price drop from a year ago when it was listed at $9.5 million.
Elvis-Presley's-Mid-Century-Honeymoon-Retreat-23 Elvis and Priscilla leased a Midcentury Modern home for about a year. They signed the lease before their Las Vegas wedding in 1967 and paid $21,000 a month for the suave residence. A copy of the lease hangs on the wall today. The residence was purchased by Boston-based investor M.L. Lewis through a trust in 1987 for $487,500 who has owned it ever since. Since he is a huge Elvis fan, the house is a museum stocked with Elvis memorabilia, including wedding pictures of the couple. Approximately 5,500-square-feet glass-and-stone house was constructed by custom builder Robert Alexander and consists of four circle-shaped living spaces set on three levels. Modernist architect William Krisel used curved walls of stone, a round kitchen island and a circular fireplace in the center of the living room to further emphasize the distinctive shape. The house has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, dining and living rooms, a bar and a breakfast bar. It also has a pool, waterfall features at the front and tennis court. Views take in the Santa Rosa Mountains and Coachella Valley.

The most famous of the three Palm Springs, Calif., the mushroom-shaped residence, owned by late comedian icon Bob Hope and his wife Dolores is being brought to market for the first time this month, at an asking price of $50 million. That’s a bit more than the $45 million the property was expected to list for when it was rumored couple of months ago that the Hopes’ kids were looking to sell. Designed by famed modernist John Lautner in 1973 (and completed in 1980), the property perched high in the exclusive Southridge community, with panoramic views of the Coachella Valley, including the city of Palm Springs and the San Jacinto Mountains.
Bob Hope's 'Mushroom' Estate in Palm Springs

The Palm Springs estate of Bob Hope is available for an asking price of $50 million

The mushroom shaped residence was actually built to look like a volcano. According to New York Times, the residence has a three visor like arches and a concrete roof that has a hole in the center that opens up a courtyard to the sky. The 23,366-square-foot home has 6 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 3 half baths, indoor and outdoor pools, a pond, putting greens and a tennis court. Since the house is huge enough to accommodate up to 300 guests for dinner under an enormous covered terrace, it was mostly used as a second home and entertaining space by the Hope family. Linda Hope, daughter of the couple recalls the parties and huge buffets that were laid out on the terraced patio. Each January, the Hopes threw a bash to celebrate the end of the Bob Hope Classic Golf Tournament that is now called “The Human Challenge”. “That was sort of a highlight of the desert social calendar,” Linda said. In December 2012, Zillow reported that a couple of Hope parcels were on the listing market. One was a three bedroom-three bathroom Spanish style ranch with a price tag of $469,000, while the other was a five bedroom-seven bathroom gated property listed at $659,000, both located in the Movie Colony area of Palm Springs. Bob Hope passed away at the age of 100 in 2003 at his Toluca Lake home in Los Angeles and Dolores passed away at the age of 102 in 2011. We’ll see whether the distinctive structure, architectural pedigree, and famous former residents be enough to help the Hope residence sell for such a whopping price? The property is co-listed with Ann Eyesenring with Partners Trust.
