Suzanne Somers, the actress who first gained fame as Chrissy on "Three's Company," and then went on to make a fortune with the ThighMaster and other healthy-living accoutrements, has been trying for ages to sell her (positively aMAZing) Palm Springs estate. It's being offered for less than half of its original asking price: a mere $14.5 million, compared with the initial ask of $35 million.

And by the way, it's her 67th birthday -- so why not make her day and take it off her hands?

This property has so many hard-to-believe features that we hardly know where to start:

• You reach it by a wooden funicular (no cars). We had to look up "funicular": It's a cute little cable car on a rail that runs up a steep slope.

• The compound has a nearly century-old guesthouse made of rocks collected from the landscape.

• It has its own outdoor amphitheater, dance floor, hiking trails and natural waterfall.

• It's "modeled authentically" on the five-star Oustau de Baumanière hotel in Provence.

• This chiseled piece of paradise, as the listing calls it, comprises 73 acres.

Our slideshow of the estate has three dozen (!) more pictures.

Or you can watch "Sunday Dinner With Suzanne Somers," shot in the very same home (and if you scroll down below that video, you'll find some ThighMaster and "Three's Company" clips):
