Suzanne Somers and her husband Alan Hamel have put thier Palm Springs compound on the market. They were originally asking for $35 million. However, it’s now decreased to $12.9. The house is located in a secluded canyon above downtown Palm Springs on a piece of 65 acres land.
According to Luxist:
The pair bought the land back in 1977, gradually enhancing the 65 acres with guest houses, an amphitheater, an updated pool and a renovated and expanded main house. Somers filled the home with a decor as exuberant as she is, French country touches keep company with velvet sofas, giant chandeliers and more than one zebra skin rug.
There are 7 different suites and houses. All of them are connected by rock terraces and natural gardens, so it’s a pretty unusual property. The grounds are stunning.

The Delia Ephron movie Hanging Up, starring Meg Ryan, Diane Keaton, and Lisa Kudrow, premiered in 2000 to poor reviews, and it didn’t make much money at the box office. The sets, however, made a big impression. Ten years later, people are still talking about the house Meg Ryan’s character Eve lived in. Ryan purchased the house in 2000 for around $8.5 million. One look at the front of the house and you can see why:
Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson couple got married in 2003. They sold their Calabasas home in 2006 with asking price to be $3.75 at that time. However, it’s back on the market for a paltry $1.95 million.

The new Mediterranean Villa has 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and lots of fireplaces. The asking price of the house was of $5M at first, and eventually reduced to 3.8. We are not confirmed as to how much she actually paid for it!!
Let’s have a look at the photos of the house:
Alan Jackson, popular country singer, lives in “Sweetbriar”, a 19,000 square-foot house. It, built in 1997, boasts on 135 acres in Franklin, Tennessee. And it, is now for sale on the market, can be yours for $38 million. Alan and his wife Denise have decided to downsize.
The house has over 8,000 square feet. At Outside of Katharine Hepburn’s estate in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, a hand-painted sign politely requested potential lookiloos to “Please Go Away.” If that wasn’t enough to convince, a “Keep Out” sign was tacked below it, too.
The home sold a year later, after her death, to Barbara and Frank Sciame for $6m. The Sciames bought the property as an investment. They renovated it and just put it back again for sale for $28 million.
Here’s how the house looked then:
