[Off Market Sale] Walt Disney's First Home & Studio - 4406 Kingswell Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

4406 Kingswell Ave. - Johnny Johnston - Compass Realty 

 

We've just closed escrow on a timeless, off-market listing; the first Los Angeles home of Hollywood icon - Walt Disney.  This one-story craftsman bungalow was owned by Disney's uncle Robert and Aunt Charlotte.  It is the site where Walt first started animating (his first animation studio was in the garage in the backyard).

Last year the home was slotted for demolition before a group of preservationists got involved and ended up getting the home added to the historical registry.  The property spent several months in limbo - uncertain of whether it would be torn-down or simply abandoned.  We have, fortunately, found buyers interested in maintaining its historical integrity.  It will remain - largely as it is - for years to come - in an effort to protect some of the architectural and cultural heritage in LA.  We're proud to have been a part of it.

Here is a vintage, Disney family home movie in front of the house. 

"The City of Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission voted unanimously to consider the Historic-Cultural monument designation for the former home of Walt Disney." -Chris Nichols

There is a third, exterior space, that's a stand-alone studio, in case your band needs to practice while the baby's sleeping. Located moments from the heart of Eagle Rock, Highland Park and Pasadena, this home offers the rare promise of flexibility and opportunity. All this and a flat back yard. Live in refined, proximity to the city.

Charming Getaway in Los Feliz

Perched above the street, this 1920's English Country home marries the best of its era's character with a modern sensibility. Arches, sash windows and built-ins complement wide plank, Sahara white-oak floors, a timelessly updated kitchen and bathrooms, a converted guest house and a heated, salt-water pool. The public rooms open to a deck that invites alfresco dining, overlooks the grounds and creates the perfect sanctuary under a canopy of trees. Beyond the pool is a guest house that makes an ideal studio, office, or in-law suite. Stroll to Little Dom's, McCall's, Lassens and the heart of Los Feliz village. Reminiscent of the French and English Countryside, it offers privacy for the discreet, taste for the discerning, and proximity for the urbane. The best of life in Los Angeles.
