LA aaroe

In 1939, newly arrived for his first Hollywood movie, Bob Hope and wife, Dolores, built their dream home in Toluca Lake. After over 70 years of celebrity guests, the estate they treasured and expanded over their lifetime came on the market—and we were given the honor of representing one of the most iconic residences in Southern California. more »
