The ultimate entertainment couple, the Bob & Dolores Hope Legacy is one that few if any in the world can match. The Hope Toluca Lake Estate, given the number of visits from Hollywood elite as well as political luminaries and even Presidential visits, has made the home a historic landmark, second only to the White House itself.  The Toluca Lake House on Moorepark began construction in 1938 (when it was still surrounded by a walnut grove) and was completed in 1939. They officially took residence in 1940. The house has gone under two major restorations in the 1950's and the 1970's. However, it was constantly being remodeled or added on to. The joke was that every time Bob went away on tour, Dolores would add a room. During a Tonight Show interview, Bob was asked if he would ever consider running for President. He said that he didn't think Dolores would be willing to move into a smaller house. There are 9 bathrooms (Not counting the ones in the guest house, servants quarters, the office or the grounds), 7 Bedrooms (not counting Guest House or servants quarters), a huge kitchen with an Island the size of many kitchens itself, two huge butler pantries, three bars, Bob's library/study, the family room, a game room/Dolores work room, a tremendous living room (that is technically the size of three regular living rooms), a formal dining room and a staff dining room. There is an elevator off the foyer and a sweeping staircase in the entry. The views from the master suite (which is technically 6 rooms with three HUGE walk in closets and two fireplaces in the bedroom and sitting room) is stunning. The guest house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The grounds include a putting green and two spots to driving golf balls from, three huge rose gardens (Dolores' passion), and outdoor olympic swimming pool and an indoor pool and jacuzzi. All this in addition to the tree lined adjacent property large enough to park 50+ automobiles. The home office building with its 6 rooms for staff and security (including Bob's amazing office with fireplace, sitting area, display cases, and writers conference table). Imagine the icons and legends of film and TV (from Katharine Hepburn and George Burns to Brook Shields and a very young Angelina Jolie) that have visited, not to mention every President since Ike have been there, including Nixon's famous arrival by helicopter. Bob once said he had performed for 11 presidents ... and entertained 8.
