Dolores Hope wanted to live in Beverly Hills, but her funnyman husband, Bob Hope, had other ideas.
"Every time I mentioned Beverly Hills, Bob would go out and buy another piece of property here," Dolores would say, waving a hand to indicate the vast spread that the two of them inhabited in the San Fernando Valley's Toluca Lake starting in 1939.
Eventually the grounds surrounding their English-style manor swelled to 5.16 acres, and the family grew to include four children. The house grew, too, to 15,000 sq. ft., leaving Bob to joke that he needed a map just to find the way to his room.

Cameron Diaz is as glamorous at home as she is on the red carpet.
Elle Décor visited the actress's chic 2,400-sq.-ft., pre-war New York City apartment for its October issue.
The home is a collaboration with interior designer Kelly Wearstler – once a judge on Bravo's Top Design – who appears alongside a casually dressed, barefoot Diaz, 41, in the spread.
Highlights of the tour include the star's bathroom, which features a regal-looking gold sink, a neutral-colored sitting room saturated with natural light, yellow accents and a high-heel shaped paperweight and a marble-topped vanity.

"Our house is the one people come to, to hang," Richie, 31, tells Domaine Home.
"I like people to come to my house and feel like they can do whatever they want."

Bobby Flay is now really living the dream.
Alongside wife Stephanie March, 38, the celebrity restaurateur and chef, 48, gave Elle Decor a peek into their dream indoor and outdoor kitchens at their new Amagansett, N.Y., home.
"I've spent my life working a grill, and I never had one at home until now," Flay said. "It took 30 years."
Flay – who used to host an annual Thanksgiving dinner for friends with the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress in their Manhattan apartment – says not too much has changed in the holiday sense since the move.

She's moving on up.

The reality star and fashion designer, 27, has plunked down $3.745 million on a spacious New England-style home – a two-story property extensively renovated by celebrity designer and star of Bravo's Flipping Out, Jeff Lewis.

More than a deal or two has been made in here.
Businessman Mark Cuban – worth an estimated $2.5 billion – prefers his home office with a basic desk and work chair to a huge conference room with lavish furnishings.
"That's not really my style," Cuban tells PEOPLE. "I want to be comfortable."
Comfort is a multi-tasker's must-have, says Cuban, 54. Along with appearing on ABC's Shark Tank and investing in those start-ups, running his AXS.tv network, directing NBA'S Dallas Mavericks as owner and juggling other investment opportunities, Cuban is also an involved dad to kids Alexis, 9, Alyssa, 6, and Jake, 3 with wife Tiffany, 40.

Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky may be headed downtown, but they are moving on up – to a new $10.5 million condo across the street from New York City's Madison Square Park, the New York Post reports.
Clinton, 33, and Mezvinsky, 35, who married in July 2010, found the new love nest while on a walk in the neighborhood, where they already live. (The park is located in the low 20s, just east of Fifth Avenue and is not to be confused with Madison Square Garden.)
The posh pad boasts four bedrooms, 6½ bathrooms, a home office, media room and a family room that overlooks the park, according to the Post. The five-story building features an apartment on each floor with a keypad elevator.
