Order up. A contemporary-style home built for Joan Kroc, the late philanthropist and ex-wife of McDonald’s Corp. franchiser Ray Kroc, is on the market in Rancho Mirage for $5.275 million.
The sleek estate sits under the shade of not golden arches, but palm trees.
Built in 1984 by Holden & Johnson Architects, the one-story home features mountain views from its 1.2-acre lot. Noted designer Steve Chase handled the interiors, which span almost 8,000 square feet. An open floor plan with high ceilings connects a grand living room and dining area.
Other living spaces include a galley-style kitchen, breakfast nook, theater room, game room, six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms.
Walls of glass line the home’s backside, looking out to a rock-accented pool and spa. An outdoor cabana sits adjacent. Gardens and covered patios dot the surrounding grounds.
The home last traded hands in 2008 for $4.2 million, records show.
John Nelson and Cat Moe of Nelson-Moe Properties, an affiliate of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury, holds the listing.
Kroc was a philanthropist, founding the Joan B. Kroc Foundation. When she died in 2003 at the age of 75, she left $225 million to National Public Radio.
