The Bing Crosby Home!Must SeeTop 10 Florida Condos For Sale
Known for his love of golf, Bing Crosby, along with many of his peers, picked the Coachella Valley in Southern California for his vacation retreat. But instead of choosing the city of Palm Springs, as an avid golfer inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame, he chose Rancho Mirage with its twelve golf courses. Every holiday season we remember Bing Crosby when his melodious baritone gets us in the Christmas spirit with the song White Christmas, the classic song of the season.
Bing’s former Rancho Mirage home is still available to buy. Located in Thunderbird Heights, Bing’s ranch-style home rests on 1.36 acres with grand views of mountains and city lights. Built in 1957 for indoor and outdoor living and entertaining, the 6,700 square foot mid-century house contains a total of six bedrooms and six baths. It includes an attached casita, named after President Kennedy, with two bedrooms, two baths, a living room and complete kitchen with its own private entrance. The casita is completely private and was named for the President after he stayed there, as legend goes, with Marilyn Monroe. Features include custom Moroccan wood entry doors, large, open and airy formal living and dining rooms, media room and chef’s kitchen with granite and stainless steel. All glass walls surrounding the outdoor entertainment area retract and open the house seamlessly to the pool, patios, outdoor kitchen and bar with mountain and Coachella Valley views. Having undergone a complete restoration, it is still for sale and remains priced at $5 million.
