Robb Report: Ultimate Home

Although the Robb Report doesn't name names of the individuals who own the "Ultimate 2009 Home," it isn't too hard for North Idahoans to guess who they might be. The home occupies 32,000 square feet on a hilltop site above Palm Desert, Calif. And the owners are described as "a couple in their 70s who divide their time between Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and California's Coachella Valley." The husband told the reporter that he wanted to so blend the mega-home into the desert hilltop that he would have to point it out to his friends while golfing below. You can view the 20-page article, complete with photos and details of Duane & Lola's southern California getaway here. And: spring 2008 report on Hagadone's Casco Bay digs here
