No longer a vacation rental

Earlier this month, we told you about a 1930s era two-bedroom cottage that looked like it was right out of the movie Snow White. At the time, it was seeking vacation renters. Well, now it can be yours forever. Your own happily ever after.

Interest in the home was so high the owners decided to sell. The 2,790-square-foot home in the Cahuenga Pass was listed today, asking $949,000. Selling it will be bittersweet, says one of the owners, Aram Nadjarian: "It made more financial sense but it was not our intention to sell." The property last sold in May of this year for $699,000.

The home’s listing really leans into the fairy tale motif, claiming the home, "was built by the Sheriff of Hollywood for his ‘True Love’ Mabel." The storybook style cottage, built in 1938, is rumored to have been the inspiration for Walt Disney's 1937 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The home boasts some rather unique amenities, such as a "fishpond with mosquito eating fish" (no feeding required), "serenity waterfall," rustic kitchen, and a Juliet balcony. To arrive at the home requires descending 72 steps down into the canyon and through a garden oasis."

Not only does the property come fully loaded with whimsy and enchantment, but also some significant upgrades. The owner of the home says it was restored, "to its original grandeur, but with modern touches" like restored and refinished original hardwood floors, a renovated bathroom and kitchen, as well as "handmade period correct wall coverings" in the master bedroom.
