PALM SPRINGS, CA--(Marketwired - November 10, 2016) - On the heels of the recent high-profile sale of the opulent Pond Estate, Palm Springs-based real estate team Patrick Jordan and Stewart Smith of Patrick Stewart Properties has announced that the Bob and Dolores Hope Estate closed escrow on November 10. This sale represents the sixth Palm Springs property Patrick Stewart Properties has sold on behalf of the Hope Trust.
Located in the exclusive Southridge neighborhood, the Hope Estate was designed by Modernist architect John Lautner and has long been the recipient of international attention. Expertly blending concrete, steel and glass, the approximately 23,000 square feet home remains the largest private residence ever designed by Lautner. Architectural feats include a curving copper roof that mimics the contours of the neighboring mountains, a massive, natural boulder that juts dramatically into the living room, and overhead, an expansive oculus at the center of the roof that opens to the sky above the courtyard. Additionally, murals by the famed painter Garth Benton ornament the bar area where numerous celebrities gathered on a regular basis.
The home's exterior features are equally impressive providing expansive views of Coachella Valley, with Banning Pass to the north and Mount San Jacinto to the west, all of which can be enjoyed from the vast, outdoor covered terrace. Attention to detail remains evident in the exterior adornments, which feature exquisite gardens, a waterfall and pond, putting green, tennis court, exercise facilities, and indoor and outdoor pools to name just a few.
"The Bob and Dolores Hope Estate required a buyer who would appreciate its unique attributes, from its storied history to the painstaking effort that was put in to every detail," say Smith and Jordan. "We are thrilled to have once again represented the Hope Trust and to have been a part of this historical sale."
