Designed by well-known architect John Lautner, the following property in California – dubbed The Hope Residence – is certainly one of the most incredible houses in the United States. Now the house is up for sale for a cool $25 million. Rather incredibly, that is a 50 per cent discount on the original $50 million asking price!
The Hope Residence is the largest private residence ever designed by John Lautner and as the name suggests, it was created for the wealthy Hope family. It includes approximately 23,000 square feet of space and is located at the top of Southridge. As a result, it overlooks the entire Coachella Valley while providing views of the Banning Pass and Mount San Jacinto.
Certainly the most eye-catching element of The Hope Residence is its unique shape. It includes a monstrous curved roof somewhat reminiscent of a UFO from science fiction. The roof extends up to a large opening at the top which looks down on a sheltered court yard complete with expansive seating areas for guests.
Elsewhere, The Hope Residence includes a huge outdoor swimming pool as well as an indoor spa and swimming pool. All up, it includes 10 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, a tennis court and is situated on a piece of land over 6 acres in size.
