Here’s an opportunity to own a piece of Palm Springs’ scandalous history: The Clifford Lambert house in Old Las Palmas, Palm Springs, came on the market this week. The tragic fraud scheme of Lambert’s murder in the house has been the subject of much publicity since he went missing in November 2008. (See related story)
Ths mid-century home is offered at $879,000 and located in one of Palm Springs’ most prestigious neighborhoods. Built in 1954, it has 4 bedrooms and 5 baths, and over 3,000 square feet. Here’s the realtor’s description below:
“Spacious and elegant estate in Old Las Palmas. This was the home of Clifford Lambert and is now a probate sale after his untimely death. The dramatic entry opens into a huge living area with uniquely designed fireplace with soaring ceiling. A large sit-down bar also sports an ice cream bar. There is a large formal dining room and a very large kitchen. Wonderful hall ways lead to the office and then the master retreat, which has a large library/sitting room with fireplace, a large sleeping area which shares the fireplace, and then a hallway long closet leads to a gigantic master bathroom. A separate hall way leads from the living area to the guest suites, each with its own bathrooms and ample sitting areas. The incredible back yard is embraced by the living area and master suite, with views of the huge pool and breath-taking mountain views. The entire estate is fenced with electronic gates. The home has a security system and dual A/C and swamp cooler systems. Location location.”
Lambert’s body was never found (hmmmm) but supposedly was buried somewhere in the desert. Per the agent, “This is a truly unique home with many one-of-a-kind features. Disclosure required as Clifford Lambert was murdered in his home which has been the subject of much publicity and multiple criminal trials. The home shows no evidence of this tragedy.”
Interested???? I have to admit, this would be a tough listing to have. However, we can make an appointment to show it to any interested buyers..
