Bob Hope's First, Second Palm Springs Homes Hit the Market

New, 13 comments

Good heavens, there is a downright glut of Bob and Dolores Hope homes on/about to hit the market right now--both their Palm Springs John Lautner and their massive Toluca Lake estate will come up for sale any minute, supposedly, and now a tipster tips us off that their first two houses in Palm Springs have hit the MLS on the very same day. (The two houses appear to have the same owner and to still be in the Hope family.) Both houses are in the fancy Movie Colony neighborhood. The Hopes bought house number one in 1941; it has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, "many of the original details that were part of the era when this home was built in 1936," a dining room, breakfast room, attached "guest casita," and a two-car garage. In 1946, they upgraded to house number two, which sits on a double lot and has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, dining room, two-car garage, and a pool. Asking price for number one is $469,000; for number two, it's $659,000.
