If you have always wanted to live happily in your own personal palace, we have just the place for you.
In the $ 2.5 million market, a historic Hollywood bookstore awaits the end of an adventure. The home last changed hands in 2006 for $ 1.57 million, and has been lovingly maintained and modernized for decades.
It was designed in 1926, at the height of the popularity of history book homes in Southern California, which coincided with the heyday of the film industry.
This home has a link to Hollywood’s heyday – it was created by the architect and set designer Roland E. Hill. Hill worked for a number of film studios and advised Disney animators on castle designs for years.
His most famous design? The iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, built in 1
Sleeping Beauty Castle was modeled at Schloss Neuschwanstein, the castle from the 19th century in Germany by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. The home Hill built for just mortals is in the equally imaginative style of a castle from a bygone era.
The home, a dream to live in, is a registered historical cultural monument.
The 2626 square meter mini-connection includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms, and includes a main house, a studio or office with a separate entrance and a guest house. The property has been restored with updated facilities whilst maintaining its original character.
From the charming gate and entrance, enter this lovely residence and take in the 26 foot beamed ceiling in the living room, with a sumptuous fireplace and double glass glass doors opening onto a walkout deck overlooking the pool.
The gourmet kitchen, with Viking appliances, will allow a new owner to whip up royal holidays and serve them in the adjoining formal dining room, which has stained glass windows and double French doors.
History book-style element includes a tower with a winding staircase, exposed brick, arched windows and doorways and original wooden floors.
The master bedroom is built for the rest of your beauty, surrounded by a stained glass window, a visible brick wall and double French doors that open to a balcony over the pool. Modern royals will also appreciate the three cabinets with built-in drawers.
Outside there is a heated pool, a slate courtyard, a grassy garden, citrus trees and a fountain. The back of the house shows a castle tower to emphasize the feeling that you are living in your own adventure.
When he moves into this cozy castle, the buyer will also bequeath the original drawings and pictures from 1926.
