Actress Suzanne Somers and her husband Alan Hamel have recently sold their Palm Springs home of 43 years for $8.5 million. They purchased it back in 1977 and have lived there ever since. Despite recently selling the house, they will be residing there until September of this year while renovations on their posh new pad are underway, the New York Post reports. The home has been on and off the market for some years. It was even listed for $35 million back in 2008, which is a sharp cut from its latest $8.5 million listing.
Modeled after Michelin-starred restaurant L’oustau de Baumanière in Provence, France, the massive Palm Springs estate sits atop 28 acres of land and is spread over a total of five buildings. The standout is the primary suite, which features a dining room that can seat up to 32 people, a two-room kitchen, a living room, a wine cellar, and a guest house that is the epitome of desert modernism. The rest of the property is described as having elegant chandeliers and rooms made from reclaimed wood and natural rock. You can tour this home via one of the property’s private funiculars, a set of stone steps chiseled into the hillside, or even a golf cart.
You love beautiful homes. So do we. Let’s obsess over them together!
The features of this dessert oasis don’t stop there. The home has its own waterfall, pool, and spa, and the land surrounding the home is ideal for hiking, with trails winding around the exterior of the property. The most outlandish part of this home has got to be the outdoor amphitheater that's carved right into a mountain! It seats 50 people and has a dance floor.
