James Bond Movie Stage: The Elrod House by John Lautner

Take a look at this fascinating looking home that seems sprung out of a Sci-Fi movie. The correlation is not far away from the truth, since this residence designed by John Lautner was in fact the stage for the famous Bond film “Diamonds Are Forever” produced in 1971. Located in the Southridge enclave, Palm Springs, California, the house amazes due to its unworldly architecture. A conical dome is the main recognizable structure that most Bond fans are sure to remember, even if this iconic building was built in the 60’s. The rocks in the site were incorporated into the interior design of the Elrod House with stunning effects. This way an inciting atmosphere was created, making one inevitably think of great adventures. This impressive and unusual looking crib has no less than five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a master suite, a roof top entertainment deck and many, many more. The residence is currently up for sale here for $13,890,000. Seems like a fair price for a James Bond movie stage?

    A great article. This house was recently featured on HGTV’s show “Million Dollar Rooms”. It’s interesting to compare the vintage photos and see the photo of how the roof sections overlap the clerestory windows in the main room.

    Isn’t this Tony Stark’s house, also?
