Hope you like this estate… it’s for sale after 74 years


This home is amazing, set up for sale, pictures show it could have been designed today, built in 1939… by Bob Hope

It’s listed at 27.5 million, it will be interesting to see who purchases it…


The eight bedroom, eight bath estate spans 14,876 square feet, and sits on more than five acres. 

According to the LA Times, Richard Nixon’s helicopter once landed on the back lawn so the president could play a round at the nearby Lakeside Golf Club, and Lucille Ball and Jack Benny drank and gossiped at the holiday parties in the living room. Hope left the home to his wife, Dolores, when he passed away in 2003, two months after his 100th birthday. When Mrs. Hope passed away in 2011, it passed to their family members under the Dolores Hope Trust.
