Walt Disney’s Los Feliz residence
Walt’s home was built (per his instructions) in a fairy tale style, and provided inspiration for Sleeping Beauty.
The house was built (by Walt) in the summer of 1932. Walt was inspired by the Tudor and French Normandy styles.
Walt gave the the girls a Snow White and the Seven Dwafs-inspired playhouse one Christmas. It had a working sink and telephone.
The house features a panoramic hill-top vista that has a 90-dgree view. On a clear day, Walt and the family could enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island in the distance. They could also see the Hyperion Studio down below.
