A home that Walt Disney built back in 1962 as a retirement home for him and his wife Lillian, recently went on the market where it was just bought by new owners for $865,000.
The property pictured above, remained in the Disney family until about two years ago when it was sold . The new owners made the home a vacation property rental dubbed “Walt’s Technicolor Dreamhouse” with weekly rental costs running in the thousands before putting it on the market last year.
The four bedroom home is about 2,443 sq ft. and sits on a quarter of an acre lot. It boasts 180 degree mountain views, glass walls and a swimming pool. The owners also added a bit of Disney magic to the property with colorful interiors, Disney quotes and pictures of Walt and Mickey stenciled onto the walls. It is also reported that much of the furniture and aspects of the home’s interior remain much as they did when Walt and his wife spent their later years there.
For a closer look at the house check out this article in the Orange County Register.
