Suzanne Somers was one of the biggest stars of the 70s and 80s thanks to the show Three's Company. She may be 71 years old, but she still looks just as good as she did back then. Thanks to her success as an actress and author, she was able to purchase a huge home in Palm Springs and has lived there for 40 years.
However, now it's time to move on and she has decided that the best way to sell it is with an auction. She had previously listed it for sale at $14.5 million, but it didn't end up selling. Now it's going to go up for auction on January 31st and there is no minimum for how much it'll end up costing.
Having no reserve on the house means that Somers may end up losing a fair bit of money on the property, but hopefully she gets a decent price as she has many memories about the home. They bought the home in 1977 as an escape from the paparazzi, and have loved it since.
It's a 70 acre property with five separate buildings across it. There is a combined 7,300 square feet of livable space, including eight bedrooms and eleven bathrooms.
Somers had a lot to say about her home's unique look...
"The layout of our home is unique," Somers said. "It's a great home for having guests because they can each go off to their own cottages at the end of the day and have privacy. There are several bedroom buildings and several common buildings. It's like a French village."
"As we rode up the romantic funicular, I said to Alan, 'Let's buy this' and he said to me, 'Could you please adopt a poker face so we don't have to pay full price?'" she explained. "I was not able to contain my excitement and we paid more than full price," she added, laughing.
Their main house boasts an enormous wine cellar that holds up to 5,000 bottles and a huge dining room that seats 32 people. "We have had the wonderful privilege of hosting so many fabulous parties in the outdoor amphitheater," Somers said, sharing that many of her famous friends used to come hang out.
The auction will begin at 7 PM EST on January 31, 2018, and you can bid online.
