A hymn to modern architecture

This Palm Springs mansion was comissioned by american comedian Bob Hope to architect John Lautner in the 1970’s. This modern temple, or “contemporary castle”, as Dolores Hope, the hollywood icon’s wife called it, is currently on the market for US $ 34,000,000.

Overlooking the Coachella Valley with panoramic views northward to Banning Pass and Mount San Jacinto to the west, the extraordinary property was completed in 1980. The sculptural house blends concrete, steel and glass, three modern materials crowned by a curving copper roof that fits perfectly in the contour of the  neighboring mountains.

The 23,000 square feet, 9 bedroom modern mansion includes such amenities as an indoor pool, a tennis court and a pond with a waterfall. The luxury property is a celebration of modern architecture and one of its finest examples worldwide.
