'La Piedra' House of 700 Tons of Hand-cut and Placed Quartz Stone With Incredible Pool Is For Sale
"La Piedra" is the name given to this 7,500 sq ft, 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, stone hilltop home with breathtaking swimming pool that is presently on the market for just under $8 million.
This unusual home is located on the historic and famous Southridge Drive in Palm Springs where the Elrod house and Bob Hope's Lautner home both stand. Perched atop a knoll and offering incredible views, serenity, privacy and guard-gated security, La Piedra was completely renovated in 2005. Originally taking over 7 years to build, more than 700 tons of amazing hand-cut and placed Idaho Quartz stone was used in the construction of this masterpiece, giving it an estimated replacement value in excess of $20 Million.
Looking somewhat like a Pharaoh's estate, the modern interior is complimented by a beautiful outdoor area and swimming pool with waterfall.
