Built in 1939 for comedian Bob Hope, this exceptional Toluca Lake home was originally designed by architect Robert Finkelhor and remodeled in the 1950s by architect John Elgin Woolf.

Grand double doors lead into the formal reception room and beyond to the foyer accented by the sweeping staircase. The gracious room with soaring ceiling ushers you into the vast formal living room.

The formal living room features a large and unique stone fireplace, a full bar and walls of glass overlooking the grounds and amazing post-and-beam patio. Filled with character and warmth, the home presents the ideal space for both luxurious living and lavish entertaining.

Kitchen

The fully equipped chef’s kitchen contains a huge butcher-block island, breakfast area, abundant cabinetry and storage and modern stainless-steel appliances.

Butler's Pantry

The spacious kitchen also boasts a separate silver pantry and butler's pantry.

Dining Room

Guests can eat in the large formal dining room with views of the gardens or in the intimate family dining room off the kitchen. Nearby, the open family room, fabulous adjacent sunken bar and adjoining billiard room offer additional space for entertaining.

Library

Just off the foyer, the warm, wood-paneled library looks elegant with built-ins and a brick fireplace. The enormous estate also houses a massive living room, bar, billiard room, formal dining room, family dining room and chef's kitchen.

Bedroom

The upstairs wows with four family bedroom suites and a remarkable master wing with his-and-hers bedrooms, bathrooms, closets and shared study.

Pool

Surrounded by blooming flowers and lush shrubbery, the in-ground pool and stone patio beckon you to relax and enjoy the sunshine.

Gardens

Pristine gardens and sprawling lawns embrace the English-style main house. The iconic estate remains unmatched in its prestigious history, unbelievable landscape and incredible beauty.

Backyard

The stunning post-and-beam patio spans the entire width of the back of the house. The property offers incredible space and expansive grounds yet remains sophisticated thanks to its scenic locale and traditional style.

Driveway

Double iron gates welcome you to the walled, gated and completely private estate. The long driveway weaves past the security building, staff offices and motor court with striking tree and fountain centerpiece and continues to the home’s main entrance.
