From: TopTenRealEstateDeals.com

The world has known and loved Suzanne Somers from her 1973 break-though cameo as the blonde beauty in the Thunderbird in “American Grafitti” to ditzy character, Chrissy Snow, on “Three’s Company” from 1977 through 1981, and as Carol Lambert on “Step by Step” from 1991 through 1998. In between, her life was a whirlwind with “Playboy” pictorials, spokeswoman for Thighmaster and another TV series that ran for two years, “She’s the Sheriff.”

Just as beautiful today as she was back in the 1970s, this powerhouse of a woman has long been one of Hollywood's major celebrities. In addition to her television roles, Suzanne has been a Las Vegas singer and dancer, talk show host, Broadway performer and USO star for the United States military. She is almost as famous for her commercials promoting health and beauty products - she was recently named to the Infomercial Hall of Fame for her legendary role as the Thighmaster pitch person. She has shared her self-help tips, beauty secrets and nutrition in over twenty books she has published.

Suzanne and her TV host husband, Alan Hamel, have created an earthy and at the same time glamorous Palm Springs, California estate which is now back on the market. Modeled after L’oustau De Baumaniere in Provence, France, the Somers-Hamel compound is pure romantic sophistication and is surrounded by privacy. On 73 acres and set into the side of a craggy mountainside above the valley in Mesa Canyon, the couple has combined their love of nature and elegance by bringing out the best in both with their use of contrast. Imagine crystal chandeliers twinkling against natural rock and reclaimed wood . . . rough against smooth, soft against hard . . . all in perfect balance. To add even more intrigue, access is via a private funicular, a golf cart or a hillside of stone steps - but no cars.

The entire estate includes five buildings to explore with 10,000 square feet of pavilions. One houses the master suite, another dining and living room, a separate two-room kitchen and wine cellar and a stone guest house designed in the 1920s by Albert Frey. There is also an outdoor amphitheater carved into the mountain that seats 50, has a dance floor, as well as a pool, spa, hiking trails and natural waterfall that spills musically down the hillside.

Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel have listed their romantic, private Palm Springs retreat, asking $14,500,000. The home was first listed in 2008 for $35 million. The listing agent is Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews International in Beverly Hills.
