Buyers appear to like the idea of sharing the same living space as Hollywood and political legends… because Bing Crosby’s former estate has attracted offers like bees on honey.
Crosby’s Rancho Mirage home was listed this week, and Compass agent David Emerson says interest has been intense… with a dozen calls a day for the property, and of those, around 15 real buyers, some of whom have already seen it.
Been told that those who have expressed interest span the spectrum, from celebrities to wealthy CEOs, and come from all over the world. The estate is worth $4.5 million and has hosted celebrities such as John F.
Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe. In fact, there’s a guest house called the “JFK Wing” where he used to hide out with MM, complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, and a living room.
The property has 5-bedrooms, 6,700 square feet of living space, a massive pool, a movie theater, 1.36 acres to spread out on, and stunning views. Emerson says while there haven’t been any official bids made … they’re close on 3, and while he doesn’t want to jinx anything, it looks like the winning bid will surpass the $4.5 million asking price.
