Bob Hope's Estate Goes On The Market
Celebrity realtor Jade Mills took INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret on an exclusive tour of the gated grounds in Toluca Lake, California. Bob Hope was 100 when he died there in 2003.
The main house is 15,000-square-feet on five acres of pricey Los Angeles land, just two blocks from where Hope worked at NBC's studios in Burbank.
The master suite has three, count them, three bedrooms. Bob's wife, Dolores used them as closets. All together there are seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
The wood panelled library is where Hope entertained some of Hollywood's greatest stars. But only two women were allowed inside his lair.
Mills said, "There were two women allowed in—Katharine Hepburn and Phyllis Diller."
Hope built the house in the 1940's when he was No. 1 at the box office. His daughter, Linda gave INSIDE EDITION never-before-seen family photos of life at the Hope home.
There is a putting green, even a sand trap because Bob Hope loved to play golf. He entertained eight U.S. presidents there and he played golf with many of them. Hope had two swimming pools, one outdoor and one indoor.
So, what's it going to set you back to live like Bob Hope? The house is listed at $27.5 million. That's a lot of coin, but then again, this property comes with a lot of memories.
