Walk in the footsteps of George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Andy Garcia.

This is the desert estate of a legendary Hollywood mogul, the late Jerry Weintraub, who produced Ocean's Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen. He also managed the careers of Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. His final film, The Legend of Tarzan, starring Margot Robbie and Alexander Skarsgård, releases in July of this year.

The house has more than 1,000 square feet of outdoor covered living.

Located in the exclusive rolling desert foothills of the ultra private Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert, “the 6 bedroom, 7.5 bath house that Ocean's 11 built” was the backdrop for the press junket for Ocean's 12. Designed by Guy Drier of Palm Desert, internationally known for his distinctive, futuristic houses, the 9,152 square foot Weintraub estate is listed for $16 million.

The home is a dynamic “study in sculptural shapes and organic warm spaces” with surprising accents like a custom pub which pays homage to the famed Claridge's Bar in London. It towers over the 16th fairway at Big Horn, creating an indoor and outdoor lifestyle with exterior features looking as if the estate itself grew out of the surrounding mountains.

Theatre chairs and upholstered furnishings showcase a limestone fireplace, six flat-screen televisions, and the infamous movie posters from the Ocean's trilogy produced by Weintraub.

An artistic steel entrance gate, water features, electrically controlled sliding glass walls and a moat-like swimming pool creates an atmosphere that evokes the splashiest of Hollywood parties, with its open floor plan offering head-on, gorgeous views over Palm Springs to Eisenhower Peak and the surrounding Santa Rosa mountains.

And the master suite. Ever wanted to walk on water? The glass floor at the foot of the bed exposes the pool below.

With the push of a button, curved glass walls disappear to reveal romantic patio dining, as well as the outdoor wet bar and living room.

Awaken and jump directly into the pool for morning laps. Surface near the exercise room and emerge from the water for a rubdown on the welcoming massage table. Or enter the steam room and relax on the granite chaise to clear the day's stresses.

The ultimate entertainer's showplace, the Weintraub estate offers world class opportunities for recreation and relaxation in a breathtaking, private California desert setting.
