Jerry Weintraub’s futuristic estate in Palm Desert gets a $4-million price cut


After finding no takers earlier this year at $16 million, the Palm Desert home owned by late Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub is now being offered at about a $4-million discount: $11.995 million.

Sitting on an elevated site within Bighorn, an affluent golf course community, the Contemporary-style home is visually dramatic with a panther-slate-lined exterior, protruding rooflines and walls of glass. Two swimming pools circle the perimeter of the Guy Dreier-designed home.


Inside, the 9,152 square feet of living space features such amenities as a media room, an office and a great room with a see-through fireplace. A custom pub evokes the bar at Claridge’s, an iconic Art Deco-style hotel in London.

There are six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms including an over-the-top master suite with sliding walls of glass that bring a section of the outdoor swimming pool inside.

Lorna Ball of Bighorn Properties holds the listing.

Weintraub, who died last year at 77, promoted and managed such stars as John Denver, Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan. As a producer, his credits include the blockbuster “Karate Kid” and “Ocean’s Eleven” film franchises.

His final film, “The Legend of Tarzan,” was released this summer.

The producer’s Beverly Hills home, a tennis court estate on about an acre, is now listed for $22.495 million, down from $25 million earlier this year.
