What has 10 fingers, two feet, is old, and has a prominent chin? Nope, not Jay Leno. This comedian topples over Leno, with countless accolades for his performances and a wide reputation for entertaining presidents. This man’s so cool that he was granted the privilege to act freely on late night TV. He’s a comedic legend who tried to defy age (died at 100). He’s the notorious Bob Hope. His home in Toluca Lake, CA is nothing but stuff of legend as well. It’s a major private, secluded, star-studded retreat that was built roughly in the middle of a piece of land that lies in between Ledge Ave and Forman Ave.
Mr. Funny Man’s headquarters is truly remarkable due to its size and amenities. The house measures 14,876 sq ft and was built in 1939. It rests on a tremendous 5.16 acres. The main house is still rockin’ a brick chimney and has numerous fireplaces. The kitchen is awe-inspiring, with generous navigable space and a breakfast nook. It gets better from here. The 8 bed/8 bath floor plan is accompanied by a bar/lounge room, library/study, office, indoor and outdoor pool, one-hole golf course……….Oh yes, and a 2 bed/2 bath guest house and staff quarters. Lastly, the two-story estate has a balcony that offers amazingly beautiful views of the property’s foliage and what envelops it.
I’m sure that there’s something I left out. Right, the property’s gated. All of this can be yours for $27.5 million.
