You can own Bing Crosby’s mansion if you have a spare 5 million dollars

You can own Bing Crosby’s mansion if you have a spare 5 million dollars

If any generous readers have a spare US$5 million, we’d like you to donate it to our worthy cause: We Want to Buy Bing Crosby’s House. Let’s explain why.

The late crooner and actor owned several homes throughout California, and built this particular house in question in 1957. The Moroccan-inspired beauty sits in the Coachella Valley and occupies just over an acre of land.

The house itself is around 650 square metres in size, with five bedrooms, several patios, and fancy retractable glass walls to make it an entertainer’s delight. And, as our generous benefactor, you’d be welcome to come and enjoy the Californian sun around the stunning pool. We’ll whip you up an amazing meal in the chef’s kitchen, and then we can watch Holiday Inn in the screening room.

Oh, and if you don’t want to drive home at the end of the night, you’d be welcome to stay in the guest house, that Marilyn Monroe and President Kennedy are rumoured to have stayed in in 1962. But enough words – just look at the images of this stunning property and you’ll no doubt be convinced that you really should buy it for us. Thanks in advance.
