Hollywood legend Bob Hope’s estate in Toluca Lake, California, is on the market for the first time ever. The price is $27.5 million. The property totals over 5 acres of land, and includes almost 15,000 square feet of living space. In addition to the main house, the estate features a guesthouse, staff quarters, staff offices, indoor pool and spa, outdoor pool, patios, sprawling lawns, expansive gardens and a 1-hole golf course complete with sand trap.
The estate was built in 1939, and designed by architect Robert Finkelhor, and then remodeled in the 1950s by architect John Elgin Woolf who gave the home a more contemporary style. Walled, gated, and completely private, the estate has 8 bedrooms and 7 baths. There is also a four-car garage.
This iconic estate represents a rare opportunity for an incredible compound, unmatched in its prestigious history, unbelievable grounds, and incredible beauty.
Hope died in 2003, and his wife, Dolores, passed away in 2011. This sale of the estate will mark the first time it has ever been put on the market.
