Palm Springs, California, has plenty of jaw-dropping real estate, and the latest to catch our eye is this six-bedroom, six-bath stunner on 2.5 acres. It’s the home of Linda Johnson Rice, a renowned businesswoman who is CEO of the Johnson Publishing Company and an independent director at Tesla.

The 5,356-square-foot home is for sale for the first time in 50 years, and the property is located in the ritzy Southridge neighborhood. Built in 1964, the home greets visitors with two giant wooden doors that lead into a private open air courtyard and pool. Overhanging roofs throughout point to midcentury style, and inside walls of glass display panoramic valley and mountain views.

The main living area features a large stone fireplace, a raised dining room, and a bar, all with exposed beam ceilings. The bedrooms also take advantage of the views, and the master bathroom manages to balance privacy with the feeling of being outside thanks to more glass walls.

Outside, a second pool boasts an infinity edge with a resort-like feel, and the surrounding landscaping uses natural stone paths and desert-appropriate foliage. It’s an impressive take on 1960s style, and 2379 Southridge Drive is on the market now for $5,300,000.
