Location: Palm Springs, Calif.
The Skinny: The Palm Springs neighborhood that plays host to the Elrod House—and that once claimed such acting legends as Steve McQueen and Bob Hope as residents—has produced yet another blockbuster midcentury modern listing: La Piedra, the former home of the late TV star David Janssen, has hit the market eight years after a complete renovation. The 7,500-square-foot home in the gated Southridge neighborhood was designed by the noted luxury residential and resort architect Edward Giddings, took seven years to build, and incorporated (per the official site) 700 tons of hand-cut Idaho quartz into its construction. Its mid-mod origins are still visible in the interconnected circular rooms and swooping roofline, though existing walls and closets were demolished during the renovation in order to maximize the mountain and desert views. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom manse comes with some very Palm Springs-ish features, including a private putting green, sunken wet bar, and pool with waterfall. It's asking $7.99M.
