The Skinny: When a tipster wrote in to say that Suzanne Somers's Palm Spring mansion was still lingering on the market, we had to take another look. Known as Domaine Montagna de Palm Springs, the 11-bedroom compound is tucked up in a hillside canyon on 65 acres, accessed by a funicular. Back in 2008, it came to market with the hopeful asking price of $35M. By August of the following year, the price had been chopped all the way down to $12.9M. Apparently, hope has returned to the Somers household, as the price has since been bumped up to $17.5M. The out-of-place Provence-inspired architecture combined with some, er, unique decorating choices might be spooking buyers, nevermind the idea of maintaining a private funicular.
