Bob Hope’s house in Toluca Lake is on the market for the first time since he built it in 1939. This original English Traditional style main house has been listed for whopping $27,5 million. Realtor.com reports that John Elgin Woolf remodeled it in a more modern design in the 1950s, but the home maintains much of its original charm. Exceptional compound consists of 4 parcels totaling approximately 5.16 acres including an approximately 14,876 square foot main house, two-bedroom guesthouse, staff quarters and staff offices.
Walled, gated, and completely private, this estate is distinct in its incredible width and expansive grounds yet sophisticated in its placement and pleasing in its design. Filled with character and warmth, the home offers the ideal space for both luxurious living and lavish entertaining.
The compound also includes indoor pool and spa, outdoor pool, patios, tremendous motor courts, sprawling lawns, and expansive gardens.
Hope lived in the home until his passing in 2003.
