A Palm Springs estate once owned by the late singer and politician Sonny Bono and his wife, Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack, has come on the market at $3,995,000.
The nearly 6,648-square-foot main house and two guesthouses sit on 1.5 gated acres with a tennis court and swimming pool. The main house has three bedroom suites for a total of six bedrooms and 71/2 bathrooms including the 1,599-square-foot and 742-square-foot guesthouses.
Bono, who died in 1998 at 62, was known for such hit songs as "I Got You Babe" and "The Beat Goes On" as part of the '60s duo Sonny and Cher. He later got involved in politics, landing a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1994. Mack, 49, serves as a Republication representative for California's Palm Springs-based congressional district in Palm Springs.
Built in 1940, the house last sold in 1998 for $1.4 million, according to public records.
