The compound is made up of four parcels totaling 5.15 acres of land and includes a 14,876 main house, a two-bedroom guesthouse, a two-bedroom staff quarters and offices.

Built in 1939 for the Hopes, the original traditional house was designed by Robert Finkelhor. The Hopes hired John Elgin Woolf to remodel and update the house in the 1950s. Walls of glass in the living room overlook the grounds.

There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a one-hole golf course, mature trees and rose gardens.  Comic actor Bob Hope died in 2003 at 100. He appeared in scores of films including the “Road” series with Bing Crosby. His wife, Dolores, died two years ago at 102.
