    Walt's House For Sale

    Walt Disney's 1932 Los Feliz Estate Hits the Market at $3.65M - Celebrity Real Estate - Curbed National

    Anyone got $3.5 million they wanna shell out for this?

    Walt Disney, the mastermind behind the Mickey Mouse phenomenon and father of the Disney empire, built this house for himself in 1932, after a series of successful short films starring the outsized rodent. The 12-room mansion was built for $50K and completed in a little over two months, quite the upgrade from the $8,000 kit homes Walt and his brother Roy had built just four years earlier. Despite the short construction time, old-world detailing dominates the interiors, with leaded glass windows, beamed and vaulted ceilings, and original hardwood floors. Rare for the era, but unsurprising in Walt Disney's house, is a projection room, where rough cuts of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves were likely screened.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    If I had the money I would buy that and turn it into the ultimate WDWRadio crash pad for the buddies here.

    That pool looks amazing and so does the rest of the house. Awesome, just awesome.
