    The Bob Hope Estate

    10346 Moorpark Street, Toluca Lake

    The Hope Estate, family home of Bob and Dolores Hope.

    Exceptional Toluca Lake Compound consisting of 3 parcels totaling approximately 3.86 acres including an approximately 14,876 sq.ft. main house, guesthouse, staff quarters, staff offices, indoor pool and spa, outdoor pool, patios, tremendous motor courts, sprawling lawns, and expansive gardens. Built in 1939 for beloved comedian Bob Hope, the original English Traditional style main house was designed by architect Robert Finkelhor and then remodeled in the 1950’s by architect John Elgin Woolf who gave the home a more Contemporary style. 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.

    Enter the estate through iron double gates, past the security building, staff offices, and side motor court with striking tree and fountain centerpiece, and continue down the driveway to the home’s main entrance. Grand double doors lead into the formal reception room and beyond to the foyer accented by the sweeping staircase. The vast formal living room features a large and unique stone fireplace, full bar, and walls of glass overlooking the grounds and amazing Post and Beam patio that spans the entire width of the back of the house. The large office off the foyer is elegant with rich dark-wood built-ins and fireplace. The open family room, fabulous adjacent sunken bar, and adjoining billiard room offer wonderful space for entertaining while you can serve your guests in the large formal dining room or dine in the intimate family dining room off of the kitchen. The chef’s kitchen is complete with huge butcher-block island, breakfast area, abundant cabinetry and storage, silver pantry, and large butler’s pantry. Additional rooms on the main level include two powder rooms and the laundry room which accesses the separate two bedroom and one-bath staff/maids quarters.

    Ascend the staircase or take the elevator to the second level featuring 3 family bedroom suites, craft room, junior master suite, and the remarkable master wing. The dual master suites occupy the entire West wing of the second level and are a private retreat with formal entry to a hallway joining the his and her master suites. His master bedroom suite offers a dressing room, two showers, built-ins, and walls of glass that open to the back terrace that spans along the back of the second level providing exterior access to many of the other upstairs rooms. His master bedroom is connected to her master bedroom through a shared study and family room with fireplace and wet bar. Her master bedroom suite is spacious and features vintage green-stained hardwood floors, sitting room, fireplace, bath, and walk-in closet.  

    The guesthouse is located above the four-car garage and features a living room, two bedrooms each with their own bath, and terrace overlooking the grounds. An additional building next to the garage houses the fantastic indoor swimming pool and spa with changing room and bath.

    The impressive grounds offer an unparalleled park-like setting complete with rolling lawns including a 1-hole golf course with sand trap, manicured gardens including a magnificent award-winning rose garden with arbor walkway and intricately designed paths, antique green house and barn-like storage shed, and sparkling outdoor pool encircled by a flagstone patio.
