BING'S ESTATE: RANCHO MIRAGE
Absolutely stunning! Indulge in this spacious ultra-luxe celebrity estate located in one of the most prestigious communities in the USA. The spectacular Bing Crosby Estate is a legendary home located in Thunderbird Heights, a private community in Rancho Mirage, Ca. This sprawling estate is well appointed for luxurious upscale living.
Bing Crosby himself enjoyed the Palm Springs lifestyle, including his love for golf, in this spectacular residence across from the Thunderbird Country Club that the actor-singer helped establish. Bing Crosby sold his golf course lot in 1952 and purchased the first house in what became Thunderbird Heights with his first wife Dixie Lee.
This luxury estate rests on the hillside in the center of Rancho Mirage in a luxury neighborhood filled with history, charm, and plenty of Hollywood celebrity intrigue.
Thunderbird Heights is and was the place to be for the rich and famous. Many infamous stories can be told about the playground of the Presidents and celebrities alike. (In fact, Rancho Mirage, where this home is located, is often referred to as the Playground of the Presidents).
This remarkable Rancho Mirage celebrity estate with approximately 7,000 square feet of luxurious living space is one of a kind. The home's elegant blend of custom-made furnishings and contemporary comforts and style along with every possible modern amenity ensure a relaxing visit.
The residence features accents from Asian influences starting with the foyer's 10 foot majestic front door to midcentury Hollywood film posters in the state-of-the-art movie theater with comfortable seating for six to eight people, and much more.
Pocket glass walls open the great room out to the lanai creating additional living space while enjoying the desert panoramic landscape in the distance. Sandstone flooring is laid throughout the entertainment and living areas to the pool including the billiards area and indoor wet bar. The pool table doubles as a ping-pong table as well.
The master suite includes approximately 1,400 square feet for pampered privacy and relaxation including a sitting area with fireplace and an ensuite spa-quality bathroom with a second outdoor shower surrounded by glass blocks for privacy.
Each bedroom has been thoughtfully and luxuriously appointed, each with an en suite bath. Two bedrooms share a second full size kitchen and a private entrance.
The kitchen and dining area feature modern Thermador appliances and all of the accoutrements for high style entertaining. Outdoor dining is also available with the BBQ kitchen island and patio dining area.
A spectacular pebble tech pool and spa with adjacent fire pits serve as a splendid centerpiece from nearly every room in this celebrity estate.
A putting green as the Crooner himself might have practiced on is also available. The home is updated with the latest technology and is the perfect celebrity estate to celebrate or to simply relax and indulge in this incredible home...
