Palm Springs is hot this summer, and we’re not just talking about the weather.

The luxe Southridge Drive has three multi-million dollar listings on the market from Coldwell Banker, including  2175 Southridge Drive, a unique circular stunner that was featured in the James Bond film “Diamonds Are Forever.”

Currently priced at $8 million, the home, known as Elrod House, was designed by famed architect John Lautner for interior designer Arthur Elrod in 1968. The 60-ft wide circular living room has a unique conical dome that fans out in nine petals. Retractable curved glass walls open the entire living room and pool terrace to panoramic views.

The home boasts six bedrooms, five baths, and views of Mount San Jacinto and Mount San Gorgonio.

Don’t quite have $8 million to spare? The “Steve McQueen House,” at  2203 Southridge Drive is on for $2.5 million and boasts glass walls which allow guests to take in breathtaking mountain views from nearly every room of the house, and 2212 Southridge Drive, “The Boat House” because of its boat-like shape and illusion that you are emerging on a voyage from the hillside, is on for $1.95 million.
