New, 10 comments

According to its listing, this ranch-style residence in Toluca Lake "was formerly a restaurant/bar known as the Boathouse—a local hotspot frequented by such notables as Humphrey Bogart, Bob Hope [whose nearby estate is still available, BTW], Howard Hughes and Frankie Avalon." Once part of a 10-acre parcel called the Toluca Lake Yacht Club, the .32-acre property includes a four-bedroom, three-bath main house built in 1948, as well as a studio/office and guesthouse. Features include hardwood and tile floors, vaulted, beamed ceilings, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a swimming pool, and a "large lot with fruit trees." Asking price is $1.45 million.
