If you have dreams of moving to Palm Springs, CA and living in a mid-century house that was built by Walt Disney, well now’s your chance! Walt and Lillian Disney had this beautiful 4-bedroom, ranch-style house built back in 1962 as a retreat for their retirement years. The house sits on a quarter-acre of land amidst beautiful scenery providing breathtaking mountain views. The house is currently listed for sale for $899,000.
The home was owned by Walt Disney’s family until 2015. Here are some fun details you should know from the listing:
“Walt had this house built in 1962, around the time when his famous television show, Walt Disney Presents upgraded from black-and-white to color, changing its name to Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color.”
“The new owners have lovingly preserved Walt’s vision of desert luxury – keeping the vibrant and beautiful animated color scheme and most of the furniture.”
“The interiors of this Palm Springs paradise are a study in color – with bold reds, blues and yellows making for a Technicolor experience with dramatic art deco influences.”
I love seeing the great memorabilia around this home and how it feels like you’re going back in time while still maintaining a contemporary look. Who’s ready to move?
