After over 70 years, the breathtaking 5+ acre estate treasured by Bob and Dolores Hope hits the market. This gracious estate was designed in 1939 by celebrity architect Robert Finkelhor who also built houses for Barbara Stanwyck, and Zeppo and Harpo Marx. The estate was redone in the ‘50s by the master of Hollywood Regency and lovingly enhanced over the years. It has hosted decades of star-studded gatherings well as informal visits from neighbors like Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra. Walled and gated, providing the utmost privacy, the compound includes a main house measuring nearly 15,000 square feet, a two-bedroom guest house, staff quarters and offices. In the main residence, a soaring foyer opens to a vast formal living room with walls of glass that frame the sumptuous impeccably manicured landscape. The stately grounds also feature a 1 par 3 golf course and a putting green. A family room, bar and billiard room, formal and family dining rooms, commercial grade chef’s kitchen, and library complete the main level. Upstairs are four grand bedroom suites and a lavish master wing. The estate features both a large classic outdoor pool and a glass-enclosed indoor pool and spa. Herein lies a historic opportunity to own one of the most iconic residences in Southern California.
