Historic Storybook Home by the Designer of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle Is Listed for $2.5M

If you’ve always wanted to live happily ever after in your own personal palace, we have just the place for you.

On the market for $2.5 million, a historic storybook home in the Hollywood Hills awaits a fairy-tale ending. The home last changed hands in 2006 for $1.57 million, and has been lovingly maintained and modernized over the decades.

It was designed in 1926, at the peak of the popularity of storybook homes in Southern California, which coincided with the blossoming of the movie industry.

This home has a link to the glory days of Hollywood—it was created by the architect and set designer Roland E. Hill. Hill worked for a number of movie studios and advised Disney animators on designs for castles over years.


His best-known design? The iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland, built in 1955.

That tier indicates moderate spread of COVID-19, with daily cases ranging from 1 to 3.9 new daily cases per 100,000 people.

Both assemblymembers represent areas that have been impacted by theme park closures; Quirk-Silva’s district includes West Anaheim, where Disneyland is, as well as Buena Park, home to Knott’s

In the Season 3 premiere of Legacies, both Hope and Landon are still unconscious for very different, but connected, reasons.

WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Legacies Season 3, Episode 1, “We’re Not Worthy,” which aired Thursday on The CW.

When Season 2 of Legacies was forced to end prematurely by the COVID-19 pandemic, both Hope and Landon were left unconscious.

Meanwhile, immortal phoenix Landon was stabbed by a Necromancer-controlled Rafael with a golden arrow. In the Season 3 premiere, “We’re Not Worthy,” Alaric is still trying to wake the pair up, but it will come as no surprise that things are never that simple on Legacies.
