Bob Hope’s legendary Palm Springs mansion has gone on the market for an eye-watering $50m.  It is the most famous property owned by the legendary comic, who was extremely passionate about architecture.

No wonder he was so cheerfulthe entertainer was often cited as the biggest private landowner in California.   Bob Hope had this house built in Palm Springs but never actually moved into it.  The house he lived in was much more modest.  If you can afford it and love living large then there’s a lot of HOPE for this house.

The futuristic California home was designed by renowned Modern architect John Lautner especially for the funnyman and his beloved wife Dolores.The concrete, steel and glass house was built in 1979 and has about 22,000 square feet of living space, and its unique design is somewhat reminiscent of the USS Enterprise.Buyer’s will get to boldly go where no-one except the Hope family has gone before.

Viewtiful: Bob had it sited on San Jacinto mountain to have a spectacular view overlooking the Coachella Valley – stunning. The property was specially designed to take advantage of the glorious natural landscape
The living room is said to have a gigantic boulder jutting into it.
Good luck to the new owners – whoever they may be!
