The celebrity couple bought the property, nicknamed the “Home of Hope,” in 1946 and owned it for the rest of their lives, according to a plaque by the front gate. Their estate sold the property in 2013.
The 2,943-square-foot home includes five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two partial baths, according to the listing.
The 1935-built ranch maintains a lot of the original design, but has been thoughtfully updated, according to the listing. Recent remodeling has upgraded the kitchen and added solar panels.
The lush 16,000-square-foot double lot also includes lots of outdoor space. There’s a patio designed for outdoor dining with a retractable awning, plus an oversized pool. Mature hedges and citrus trees line the lot.
The property also includes a casita with a private entrance that the listing suggests could be used as a vacation rental.
