    Celebrity Homes For Sale

    Today I took a few minutes to plan for an upcoming trip I am about to embark on with a friend to beautiful Palm Springs, California for a much needed spa weekend. Impressed at the beauty, I decided to see what homes look like and go for in and around the area. One major celeb’s home that just came on the market caught my eye. It seems Suzanne Sommers has just listed her Palm Springs mansion for sale for a nominal $35 Million!

    They just did a post about it over at Big Time Listings. But it seems The Real Estalker first broke the story on January 11th. Here’s the highlights;

    SELLERS: Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel
    LOCATION: Alta Vista Road, Palm Springs, CA
    PRICE: $35,000,0000
    SIZE: 65 acres, 10 bedrooms, 9 full and 3 half bathrooms (spread across several buildings)

    Maybe I should arrange for an "Agent Preview" while I am there! Think they’ll ask for a pre-approval letter???

    Big Time Listings has a link to a virtual tour you can take of the estate (coined Les Baux de Palm Springs by Suzanne and her husband after their favorite French town by the same name) at

    Craig William BAskin, III, grand-nephew of The Three Stooges and cousin to the late Princess Grace of Monaco, has sold his country estate, Hound Hollow, in Charlottesville, Virginia to that state's former Governor, Gerald Baliles. Baskin has just purchased the famed mid-century "Waterfall" home in Palm Springs, designed by noted architect James Cioffi. The home features a waterfall which sends water flowing off the roof and into the pool, where guests can enjoy surrounding mountain views. The home is nearly 5,000 but has only two bedrooms. He plans to now divide his time between the Palm Springs residence and his home located above the Sea of Cortez in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.
