Built for famed crooner Bing Crosby in the 1950s, this glorious ranch in Rancho Mirage, Calif. is soon to be on the market for a cool $5M. The five-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot estate has flickered on and off the market in the past years and was last listed for $3.495, some 43% cheaper than the current ask. The current owner chalks the price hike up to a recent interest in the neighborhood (a rumor even circulated that Obama was buying close by) as well as a whole host of extensive renovations. Now, the gated home boasts retractable glass walls, a private guest wing, and a fancy master suite, as well as a pool, a spa, and a home theater. Best of all? Because the owner also happens to be a huge fanboy, the place is also decorated with liberal "Bing Crosby photos and movie posters." For those who missed out on snapping up all the previous Crosby-approved pads, "Now is The Hour."
