The Obamas are reportedly poised to purchase a custom-built high-class home in the Rancho Mirage section of California for $4.25 million.

White House officials deny the reports, but realtors say otherwise, claiming that the first family are in escrow for the Thunderbird Heights community house, located on a hilltop near Palm Springs in the same area once called home by Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom structure has its own two-story waterfall and golf putting green, and “master retreat” with gym, tanning salon and private spa, according to Realtor.com. Other features include elevators, a private rock-formed lagoon, and a misting system to help with the heat.

The property also includes a casita with three bedrooms and three baths, and spans 3.29 private acres, according to the real estate listing.

The Obamas spent a long Father’s Day weekend in the Coachella Valley a month ago, where they stayed at a home in the same Thunderbird Heights neighborhood, the Times reported.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday the report was “not accurate.”
