The desert estate that Bosley Medical Group founder Larry Lee Bosley (1931-2016) and his wife Sandy built at BIGHORN Golf Club in Palm Desert is one of architect Bob Ray Offenhauser’s best collaborations of Mediterranean sophistication and casual desert ease. The eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom home is listed with Markus Canter and Cristie St. James of St. James + Canter for $11,995,000.
Accessed through two sets of private gates, the residence is centered on two of the most desirable southern-exposure home sites with unobstructed panoramic views of the Canyons course’s 4th green and lake, and the San Jacinto Mountains beyond.
Surrounded by gardens and water, every space in this unrivaled home is a magical experience.
Inside this exquisite home you will find a true chef’s kitchen, well-equipped with a refrigerated walk-in pantry as well as a dry pantry.
The kitchen opens to the family room, which offers access to resort-like outdoor living spaces through pocketing walls of glass.
The master retreat is exactly that, offering an office, dual bathrooms with three closets, an antique tub, and even an outdoor shower for those beautiful desert days.
Each guest suite is nicely appointed with private baths and closets.
In case the soothing backdrop of desertscape, surrounding mountains, and lush green fairways is not enough to sell you on this property, additional amenities include a wine room, theater, bar lounge, and gym.
Complete with an infinity-edge pool, kitchen, pizza oven, citrus grove, herb garden, and greenhouse, there may be some days where you are outdoors from sunrise to sunset.
Entertainers will also love the large motor court that provides parking for multiple vehicles.
A captain in the Army Medical Corps, Bosley started a private dermatology practice in the San Francisco area after returning from service in Germany. In 1974, he relocated to Beverly Hills to focus on one thing: hair restoration for men and women.
From a small office, his Bosley Medical Group evolved not only his practice, but also an entire industry on the strength of Bosley’s drive for excellence. With that came breakthroughs in hair-restoration technology, artistry, and patient results.
Offenhauser (1927-2016) was an American architect who designed mega-mansions with high ceilings. One of them was Palazzo di Amore in Beverly Hills, the most expensive property on the market in the United States in 2014.
