John Trosko at the OrganizingLA Blog gives us the first glimpse of the 1927 storybook house of Roland Hill, architect for Sleeping Beauty's Castle at Disneyland. The home, located just above the Cahuenga Pass at 3268 Bennet Drive is on the market for a rather affordable - well, a price isn't given. Maybe the Times will tell us this weekend. Via the OrganizingLA blog:
"Hill's whimsical style and talent for fine craftsmanship are detailed and apparent from the moment you step over the threshold. The original magnesite floors grace the grand foyer, complete with fainting couch and coved archways. A beautifully remodeled kitchen complete with Viking Appliances, custom cabinetry and granite counter tops. A separate maid's room with bath can be accessed by a set of stairs just off the kitchen with a private patio and plenty of light."
For the curious, the house was listed by Trulia as having sold in November 2004 for $1.3 million. It features 4 beds and 3 baths. We'll be curious to see how much it's appreciated in less than two years.
UPDATE: One of those wise realtor people lets us know the property is on the market for $1,649,000. · Roland Hill, Architect of Disneyland's Famous "Sleeping Beauty Castle" Storybook Home on the Market [OrganizingLA Blog]
