Linda Hope, daughter of Bob and Dolores Hope, is the winner in the battle over her famous parents’ Toluca Lake mansion.

The Los Angeles City Council voted against granting the Bob and Dolores Hope estate on West Moorpark Street historic status on Tuesday.

A total of 10 votes in favor were needed to grant historic status and eight voted in favor while two opposed, according to a statement from Council member David Ryu.

Ryu introduced an emergency motion in September to give the city a chance to consider the estate’s historic designation status.

Hope was against the proposal, citing her parents’ wish to have the home sold quickly with proceeds going towards the Bob and Dolores Hope Foundation, The Real Deal previously reported.

Ryu said he was disappointed in the City Council’s decision.

“When you think about Toluca Lake, you think Bob Hope,” Ryu said in a release. “This property is a significant piece of Hollywood history that should be protected.”
