Disneyland Resort guests appreciate the majestic Sleeping Beauty Castle as the centerpiece of the West Coast theme park. Its grand design and decorative features make it quite a spectacle for Disney Park visitors in Anaheim, California. The wonderful castle was built by the architect, Roland E. Hill. Today, the Hollywood home of Roland E. Hill is now on the housing market. It’s no surprise that his home is quite a gem in Hollywood!
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home was built in 1926. The registered historic home has a castle-like turret, stained glass reminiscent of that in the classic 1959 film — and comes with the original 1926 blueprints of the 2,626-square-foot house. The cottage last sold for $1.57 million in 2006.
The living room has its original hardwood floors, and 26-foot exposed wooden beams create a storybook peak. A red-and-yellow stained-glass window looms over an oversized gray fireplace, and a wrought-iron chandelier and lantern lighting create a mystical ambiance. Arched glass doors open to a balcony overlooking a deck with a heated pool.
Through a pair of medieval-style peaked doorways, the dining room has another stained-glass window and exposed ceiling beams, with French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony.
The kitchen (and the rest of the house) has been updated with modern appliances.
Up a winding staircase, the master bedroom has a stained-glass window, exposed brick wall and three closets sure to satisfy the prince or princess in potential buyers. Meanwhile, double French glass doors open onto a dramatic balcony overlooking the pool.
The property, which sits on a tenth of an acre, is packed with a main house, a separate studio, a guest house and a two-car garage, plus five citrus trees, a fountain, a slate patio, a fire pit and wrought-iron gates.
