Bob Hope‘s legendary Palm Springs mansion has gone on the market for a mouth-watering $50 million! Designed by renowned Modernist architect John Lautner, the house on San Jacinto mountain commands spectacular views overlooking the Coachella Valley, with its curving copper ‘ mushroom’ roof ¬†juxtaposed against nearby mountains.

Lautner was said to have been infuriated at what he deemed to much interference by the Hopes, and was said to consider the house inappropriately furnished, distancing himself from the property in later years.
