Walt Disney’s House For Sale!

That’s right. Walt Disney’s actual house is up for sale.

This is where the animation legend lived from 1932 (about when he was starting Snow White) to 1950 (when Cinderella came out). We can’t tell from the listing, but if my Disney history is correct (and it’s normally pretty good) then this is also where he built his own private back garden railway!

Here’s what the realtors have to say:

Private, Gated, Historic home on large Double lot; over ONE ACRE in total. Mediterranean entry; circular rotunda, painted ceilings, vaulted beamed ceilings, original stained leaded glass, Juliet balcony. The EPIC IMAGERY: PROJECTION and SCREENING Room built for Walt Disney to watch his dailies, perhaps Snow White, Fantasia, Cinderella… and enjoy private screenings. Beautiful Floor Plan: 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths. Downtown VIEWS, Pretty Swimmers Pool, Billiard’s Room with Sleeping Porch, 2 fun Original Bar areas and the Original Playhouse featured in “The Man Behind the Myth”. Renowned history from Hollywood Royalty, yet a place for your imprint could make this the happiest place on earth.

All that available for a mere $3,650,000. I’ve gotta tell you, if I’d only won the Euromillions last week, this would be mine by now! It’s got turrets and everything!!!
