Walt Disney's House for Sale

Last Updated Sep 2, 2011 12:45 PM EDT

It's not Main Street, U.S.A. but it still sounds like a pretty fun place to live: Walt Disney's house is for sale.


With a screening room, swimming pool, billiard room, and two bars, Walt Disney's former mansion in the elite Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles would be a magical home for kids of all ages.

Priced at $3.65 million, the estate was built in 1932. Disney lived in the home at a time when his studio was a short walking distance away on Hyperion Avenue. This was right in the middle of what is known as Disney's Golden Age of Animation, when he oversaw the creation of such hand-drawn classics as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

After the studio's 1937 relocation to its present-day home in Burbank, the old studio was bulldozed to make room for a strip mall.

The 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom property is located on an acre of real estate and boasts a winding driveway which allows great views of the hills and downtown L.A. skyline. The home itself measures a spacious 6,388 square feet.

The architecture is described as a Mediterranean/Tudor mix, which complements the property's build into the far eastern end of the Santa Monica mountains.

Disney and his wife Lillian raised daughters Diane and Sharon in the home that a young Diane dubbed "The Canyon." In keeping with Snow White's themes of befriending creatures of all types, the land was once home to chicken, foxes, quails, possums and rabbits.

Though the wild animals are long gone, the house has been exceedingly well kept up and presents a relative bargain when you consider the its auspicious place in Hollywood history.
