Bob Hope’s Futuristic Space Age Home Up for Sale

Bob Hope's home

The nearly 24,000 square foot futuristic home designed by architect John Lautner in 1973 as a private residence for Bob Hope and his family is up for sale, according to Aol Real Estate. The property is located in Palm Springs, California, has a full view of Coachella Valley, and looks like a flying saucer (reportedly Hope quipped, upon seeing the home’s model, “At least when they come down from Mars, they’ll know where to go.”). The asking price is $50 million.
