The Most Recognizable Home in Palm Springs? Bob Hope’s place is yours for $24 million

Sometimes you find the most amazing things when you’re just surfing the ‘net. I stumbled on the listing for one of the most iconic homes in Palm Springs; the former home of Bob Hope.  It’s the domed dwelling that sits up on a hill overlooking the Palm Springs and its neighbours.  I’ve often wondered what it looks like inside.  Thanks to the real estate listing I found on Zillow, I now know… and so do you!

The Zillow real estate listing calls the property, “Bold + Iconic + Legendary + Timeless = The Bob and Dolores Hope Estate. Mere words cannot describe this majestic and historical piece of architecture which was the largest private residence designed by John Lautner and commissioned by legendary Bob and Dolores Hope. The property has entertained dignitaries from all over the world and is viewed by many as one of the most iconic pieces of architecture in the world.”

But it’s the rare photos that most interested me.
