The newly completed home in Palm Springs that actress Lindsay Gort and her restaurateur-turned-designer-builder husband Bo Laughlin helped make a dream come true is on the market for $5.1 million.
The couple collaborated with a local architect Sean Lockyer of Studio AR+Dextended blueprints for a 4,185-square-foot home with vanished glass walls in five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a combined dining and living area.
Drawing on his experience as a serial restaurateur, Laughlin made his debut in the development and design of single-family homes with this project.
“We had to consider not just the food, but the customer’s overall experience,” he elaborated. “Do you feel welcome when you first walk in? Is there a natural flow from one space to the next? Is there good light during the day? Are the seats and booths comfortable? Is it memorable? I paid the same attention to this house.”
The nearly half-acre land last sold for $415,000 in July 2019, according to Riverside County records.
Before the house was finished, Laughlin and Gort spent time in the clearing, noting where each room would get the best light and view.
Features an open concept kitchen with large center island, self-contained bathroom with “beautiful lighting” and large glass. Fleetwood pocket sliders frame views of the San Jacinto Mountains and extend the interior outdoors.
The grounds include a saltwater pool and spa, fully equipped kitchen, fire pit area, and desert landscaping with a galapa hardwood deck and cantilevered pergola.
Overlooking the pool is a breeze of double sided glass that connects the main area with the bedroom suites in each wing. The main suite has a large walk-in bathroom and a spa-like bathroom.
But more than it looks, this home was built with sustainability, efficiency, and durability in mind. Consider locally sourced materials, 4 units of split air conditioning, and 28 solar panels to cover his 80% of the home’s energy needs, according to marketing materials.
High-density eco-spray foam keeps out the cold in winter, the heat in summer, and everything in between.
