Beverly Hills entrepreneur and designer Marc Ware, founder of the sportswear company Hot Cotton, has put his modern estate in Palm Springs on the market for $8.95 million.
Designed by Don Boss, a former associate of modernist architect A. Quincy Jones, the dramatic residence is distinguished by an over-arching elemental aesthetic: Walls of floor-to-ceiling glass bring the native landscapes, palms and gardens by landscape architect Steve Martino inside. Seven negative-edge swimming pools surround the home, creating the illusion of floating on water.
A formal entry, living, dining rooms and family rooms, chef’s and catering kitchens and a den are within the 8,060 square feet of open-plan space. The "spine," a long hallway adorned with floating fiberglass light fixtures, invites light while dividing the interiors.
The master suite has a fireplace, dual vanities and a steam shower. Two guest suites, each with private patios and mountain views, reside in a separate wing for a total of five bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Outdoors, a mix of fire elements, sculptural light fixtures and the surrounding pools make up 1.5 acres of resort-like grounds. A large shade structure, a 9-foot outdoor fireplace and a lighted tennis court and amphitheater round out the desert setting.
TTK Represents, HK Lane — Christie's International Real Estate, holds the listing.
