Open and airy layouts, indoor and outdoor entertainment, and beautiful views of the Coachella Valley are all included with this iconic celebrity home, now listed on the Southern California market.
The Bing Crosby Estate with the John F. Kennedy Wing is officially for sale, boasting a price tag of $4.5 million, TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. The legendary Crosby home is located in Thunderbird Heights and spreads out across 1.36 acres.
The Thunderbird Heights area is a gated community with beautiful views of mountains and city lights. It is also home to 10 golf courses, which were perfect for Crosby’s love of playing golf.
The ranch-style home was built in 1957, with indoor and outdoor living and entertainment. The mid-century home has a total of six bedrooms and six baths, coming in at about 6,700 square feet.
Sharing many tee times, Crosby and Kennedy became very close friends. Their relationship was so strong, Crosby dedicated an entire wing of his home to the former President. This quarter of the house was for Kennedy when we came to golf and enjoy the warm California weather.
Kennedy’s casita includes two bedrooms, two baths, a living room, and a full kitchen with its own entrance. The completely-private wing has custom Moroccan wood entry doors, a media room, a chef's kitchen, and an open formal living and dining room.
Keeping the layout fresh and airy for the nice California weather, all-glass walls surrounding the outdoor entertainment areas open up to the outside. Once open, you can walk straight out to the pool, patios and outdoor kitchen, while enjoying breathtaking views of the Coachella Valley.
Thunderbird Heights did not start out as prime and perfected as it is now. The area was originally an onion field, but was turned around in the 1950s by a group of investors, including Bob Hope and Desi Arnaz.
The group took this once drab field and turned it into the country club of their dreams, becoming one of the most coveted areas for vacation homes in Southern California.
Thunderbird Heights is also home to major golf tournaments and some of the top festivals of the world, making it an area of recognition.
