The home of the late Bob Hope is on the market, and seems to be going nowhere, as the home has bene listed for the past two years. The home is located in Toluca Lake, California. It is considered a mansion by many, after all it does have around 15,000 square feet.

Hope purchased the land in 1939 and began construction on the home during the same year. Hope designed the home for himself and his wife, Dolores. The home was renovated in the 1950’s, so it is something that many need a bit of updating for the future homeowners.

The listing price for the home was $27.5 million when it hit the market in 2013. However, now, the price has dropped to $12 million.

The home has seen the likes of several stars including Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby to name a few. But, even with all the name dropping associated with this property, it has been sitting without any interest from buyers.

The home is gated, and along with the home that has 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, there is also a two bedroom guest house. There are also separate staff quarters. The land is gardened beautifully, making a person feel as though they are in their own little oasis. In addition, there is an outdoor pool and a marvelous patio that could be used for endless entertainment. With the new price, chances are it will be snatched up by someone soon!
