    Description


    Own a piece of Palm Springs history! The elegant "Home of Hope" was occupied for many years by Hollywood royalty Bob Hope and his wife Dolores. One of three properties they owned here, this estate remains largely true to its original design but has been thoughtfully updated. Sitting on over 16,000 square feet of land, the private park-like double-lot is surrounded by lush, mature hedges and citrus-bearing trees. The graceful interior boasts nearly 3,000 square feet of living space. Enter into the grounds and be immediately captivated by the oversized swimming pool and expansive deck that is designed for al-fresco entertaining. The large, retractable awning provides shade for outdoor dining or pool party entertainment. Recent remodeling includes the addition of solar panels, an upgraded kitchen, and beautiful wallpaper from Schumacher and Cole & Sons. The casita is accessible via private entrance and can be used as a vacation rental. It's a spectacular property.
