All of the Proceeds From the Toluca Lake Estate Will Go to Bob Hope & Dolores Hope Foundation
Bob and Dolores Hope’s eight-bedroom Toluca Lake estate has been sold to businessman Ron Burkle for $15 million.
The deal includes the main residence, which was originally built in 1939 by architect Richard Finkelhor (who also designed estates for Barbara Stanwyck and Harpo Marx) and then expanded into a 15,000-square-foot home in the 1950s by noted Hollywood architect John Elgin Woolf (who built homes for the likes of Cary Grant, Errol Flynn and Katharine Hepburn).
The sprawling, 5.2-acre property at 10346 Moorpark St. also includes indoor and outdoor pools, formal gardens, a guest house, a three-hole golf course and a putting green.
Craig Stone, executive director of the estate’s division for Pacific Union International, represented both the buyer and seller, with all proceeds going to the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation.
