DESCRIPTION
 
.
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.
