(LATIMES) — President Obama and his wife, Michelle, could be the owners of a home in Rancho Mirage listed at $4.25 million before the month is out.

The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated community where entertainers Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once maintained estates.

The White House said rumors regarding a home in Rancho Mirage are not true.

The Obamas would not be the first presidential family to land in the Southern California desert. After completing his time in office, former President Gerald R. Ford moved to the area, which has been called “the playground of presidents.” Other U.S. presidents have visited and spent time in the Coachella Valley.
