Almost as dazzling as the jewels in the 1971 Bond classic film “Diamonds are Forever” was the home featured in it. Now this futuristic Palm Springs, California four bedroom, five and a half bath pad could be yours for just $10.5 million.
According to the listing, the home was commissioned by the interior designer Arthur Elrod who told famed architect John Lautner (who also designed the space-age home from “The Big Lebowski”) to “Give me what you think I should have on this lot.'” It is now known as the Elrod Home.
This 8,901-square-foot single-story hillside mansion was built in 1969, just a few years before the movie came out. It boasts a domed-ceiling and a circular living room with views of the Coachella Valley. An outdoor spiral staircase leads to a separate guest house (for any impromptu visits by international jewel thieves), which has two bedrooms and a gym. Hiking trails wrap around the property.
Most outstanding is the film-worthy retractable living room wall that opens up the home directly to the outdoor pool area — perfect for quick getaways!
