The estate of Bob Hope, the comic icon of midcentury film and television, is on the market for a whopping $50 million. The ultra modern home is located at the end of Southridge Drive in Palm Springs, CA. Designed in 1973 by the California Modernist architect John Lautner, the architecturally unique home features 23,366 square feet of living space with 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It was built to resemble a volcano, with three visorlike arches and an undulating concrete roof, a hole at its center opening a courtyard to the sky.
