Come and knock on her (new) door. Actress Suzanne Somers and her husband, Alan Hamel, have moved to a new Palm Springs, CA, property, which they purchased in January for $2.35 million.
But before they move into their newly purchased pad, they plan to embark on a series of updates and renovations. Somers told the Desert Sun that the 1978-built home was on the market for the first time ever and will take about a year to renovate.
Despite the delay, the actress is thrilled with the purchase.
“[Interior designer] Steve Chase designed (it), so everything about it has style. I’m excited,” she told the publication. “We will maintain the integrity of the Steve Chase design while updating. It’s a project I look forward to. It will take many months, which is good to give me time to leave my beloved paradise.”
Suzanne Somers’ new, smaller home
While much smaller than the Palm Springs compound she’s accustomed to, her recent purchase does make a big statement. Located in Southridge, a gated community, the property captures the desert aesthetic.
The 4,800-square-foot, four-bedroom home is also emblematic of the custom homes of the late ’70s, with floor-to-ceiling windows and an open floor plan. It also comes with a separate casita, pool, and spa.
The 72-year-old Somers starred in “Three’s Company” and has written self-help and diet books. In 2015, she participated in the 20th season of “Dancing With the Stars,” finishing in ninth place.
