Bob Hope’s Lautner-designed Palm Springs home finally finds a buyer - The volcano-inspired dwelling sells for $13 million

Well, some lucky rich person has finally gone and ponied up enough cash to land Bob Hope’s dramatic John Lautner-designed Palm Springs residence. The home appeared on the market in 2013 with a bold $50-million price tag. That price dropped to $25 million in 2014, and there it stayed until now.
The Los Angeles Times reports the final selling price to be $13 million—a deep discount on the original asking price to be sure, but still a more-than-respectable figure for the area. It’s also close to twice as much as the $7.7 million paid earlier this year for Lautner’s Bond-villainy Elrod House, also in Palm Springs.
Hope’s home, somewhat reminiscent of a mushroom, was actually inspired by the shape of a volcano, according to the New York Times. The geologic aesthetic fits in pretty well with the desert surroundings, and the massive hole in the roof of the structure saves the place from getting too cave-like.
