Suzanne Somers’ Property in Palm Springs

by hookedonhouses on September 8, 2009


Suzanne Somers and her husband Alan Hamel have been trying to sell their Palm Springs compound for over a year. They were originally asking an eye-popping $35 million, but it’s now down to $12.9. It’s located in a secluded canyon above downtown Palm Springs on over 65 acres. Any takers?


There are 7 different suites and houses connected by rock terraces and natural gardens, so it’s a pretty unusual property. The grounds are stunning.


The master suite:


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.




Suzanne says the decor was inspired by the South of France. She spends a lot of time in the kitchen and is an accomplished cook, using organic fruits and vegetables from her own garden.





The outdoor ampitheater:

HOLY SMOKES! I had no idea they had that kind of set-up. Absolutely beautiful! From 35M to around 12M??? OK…let’s see…..I can have this beauty on 65 acres in Cali for around 12M or the run-down shack in Texas on 4,300 acres, complete with dead deer heads for around 16M? mmmmm…. what to do, what to do….. huh, I’ll go with Suzanne Somer’s place. :-)
Thanks for sharing this!

It’s much to traditional and show-ey for my taste. I do love the pop of colour in the dining room though. I don’t think it really fits, but whatever, haha.

Kellye September 9, 2009 at 2:20 am

Wow, I’m surprised that I really like the house. Who thought that Suzanne Somers would have such a cool place? This seems to me like an old-fashioned “Hollywood” house. I would kill for that dressing room!!

Dagny @ Beautiful Living September 9, 2009 at 5:36 am

It is quite beautiful and not as grossly styled (or not styled?) as most of the “mcmansions” around the area are. Wonder why it’s not selling?

A tiny bit over the top for my taste but on the whole gorge and she still looks great. What a fabulous survivor.

I never expected that style from her. It’s beautiful. Not sure if I could live with some of the furnishings but it’d be fun to add my touch. ha.
Thanks for the tour.

Very very nice. Love the colors. I could use a few less ruffled slip covers but other than that it is really striking. Paula Grace is a good friend of mine with a great blog and I’m glad she followed my lead at Hooked.

LeAnn September 9, 2009 at 8:05 am

Hard to imagine owning something like this…it’s a whole other world. Wonder who will buy it.

I didn’t expect the house to have as much charm as it did, it’s not over the top just well done French Country.

Man, I wish someone would pay me to play a ditzy blonde so I could own a place like that. Sweet digs, with fabulous style. Susanne Somers is one SMART cookie.

Becky @ Farmgirl Paints September 9, 2009 at 9:09 am

That has to be one of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen!!! We LOVE Palm Springs. The patio picture was pure heaven. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Susie September 9, 2009 at 10:08 am

If only I had an extra 12.5 million lying around, then it could be mine. I love the decor. French country is warm and charming, comfortable yet a little dressy and definitely my kind of style.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions September 9, 2009 at 10:38 am

I like Suzanne Somers. She seems like a nice person. Now to the point of your post ~ I LOVE her house! I could move right in here and be quite comfortable. I love all her chandeliers, too. Missed the Kathy Griffin episode {I used to watch all the time}. I would have liked to have seen that.

Janet September 9, 2009 at 10:49 am

The house and grounds are gorgeous. I love the rock house I could live there.

Wow, when I saw the first picture of hte outside I was like $12.5 million? Ya right! But the inside is gorgous! I love the kitchen and the outside views must be amazing. I’d love to eat outside at night and look at that!

We fly to Palm Springs in Oct. Do you think one needs to pre qualify to see her listing ?

Lisa September 9, 2009 at 11:43 am

I always crave to see how these people live. THAT is some kinda swank. I really do love Ms Somers, shes down to earth kinda gal, from what I gather.

Thanks for the tour! These homes make me feel soooo not worthy.

I just love her ( can’t stand Kathy Griffin), saw her one time in person I had no idea she could sing…not so much my style but it suits her to a T….big drop in price HUH ??? OMG 65 acres….I wonder if she ever rebuilt her house in Malibu that burned to the ground ???

Great post Julia….I hope you had a nice Labor Day….:)

All the best,
Kathy :)

Suzanne S is one one of my fave peeps, and K Griffin certainly is not BUT I will say SS has tremendous taste (or her decorator does). This place is stunning every where one turns. The dressing room…ooh la la and the kitchen with two Viking stoves and two dishwashers, a definite chef’s dream!

Great fun Julia!

Hi Julia. This is my dream house for when I become a movie star. Might as well dream in a GIGANTIC way!. I love all the chandeliers, fabrics, and that green in the dining room. Holy #$$&, it’s amazing, and don’t get me started on the gardens. Very enjoyable………………. Thanks so much. Dreams are fun!

WOWZA!!!!!!! I love this home and the land. Classy, just like the Lady (and the Gentleman) that lives there! Quite a bit of living of life has gone on here. Alot of the shots in Ms. Somers diet books are from this house & grounds. Very beautiful location. not my best climate though, but I’d love to visit there…whenever it’s cool out… Thanks for sharing.

Shelia September 17, 2010 at 11:32 am

Oh, her home is so gorgeous and that kitchen! Oh,my goodness. Now as lovely as her house is, I just wanted to tell you – those green chairs and the green wall over to the left reminded me of those green moss balls! :) I know, I’m a silly!
Be a sweetie,

I thought this house for sale and already sold? I hope those are not real zebra skin rugs!

hookedonhouses September 17, 2010 at 6:29 pm

It may have sold by now. I wrote this post over a year ago. The listing is still online, though, so I’m not sure what the status is. -Julia

Tina September 18, 2010 at 11:23 am

Been looking at this property for 2 years now! Absolutley in love with the grand beauty and solitude of this home. The design and decor are incredibly thought out. Love the mix of rock walls, chandeliers, zebra rugs and apple green velvet draperies. Keep hoping to be able to buy this one day!

mishelle September 19, 2010 at 3:15 am

Wow, i love her decor. I love the green . Nice change for slipcovers. Ok so they oput the zebra rug in a bout every room. It looks good in all of them. That green just gets to me, i love it.
