Palm Desert, Feb. 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One of the most dynamic estates in the country hit the market today at BIGHORN in Palm Desert, California. The Weintraub Estate, home of the late Jerry Weintraub, concert promoter and movie producer extraordinaire, has been listed by BIGHORN Properties for $16 million. A Hollywood mogul and highly respected international name in the entertainment business, Weintraub was best known for his production of Ocean’s 11, 12, and 13, as well as being the manager for Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.
The Weintraub Estate was fondly nicknamed the “home that Ocean’s 11 built.” Upon the completion of the home, Weintraub invited the cast of Ocean’s 12 for an international press junket at the famed BIGHORN, an exclusive, private golf community 15 miles east of Palm Springs. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Catherine Zeta Jones and her husband Michael Douglas all stayed at the estate while Diane Sawyer produced a primetime feature right on site. The crew conducted entertainment interviews in the morning then enjoyed the afternoons working out, playing golf and hanging poolside.
Designed by Guy Dreier, the open floorplan with 9152sf inside and over 1000sf of outdoor covered living was constructed so that with the push of a button the entire house is open and “on”, from music and televisions to water features and fireplaces. The estate features 6 bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a custom pub that pays homage to the iconic Claridge’s Bar in London, media room, office, guest family room, 6-car garage plus private golf cart garage off the master. The elevation of this site affords some of the most picturesque views in the Coachella Valley – reaching from Palm Springs to Eisenhower Peak and the surrounding Santa Rosa range. Views also include the Tom Fazio-designed Canyons course’s 16 th and 17th fairways.
“Beaumaniere limestone flooring, cedar wood ceilings and smooth plaster walls create the perfect gallery to display some of Jerry’s favorite pop-influenced art”, shares BIGHORN Properties Broker Associate Lorna Ball. “A stunning, double-sided fireplace is a sculpture in its own right, providing both drama and elegance to set the stage as you enter the home. Much strength was drawn – literally and figuratively – from the natural granite mountains surrounding this estate, so this architectural statement had to be worthy.”
