Walt Disney’s historic mansion for rent for $40,000 a month

In an extraordinary opportunity for Disney enthusiasts, Walt Disney’s iconic family mansion is now available for rent.

Situated in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighbourhood, the mansion, where Walt Disney, the mastermind behind Disneyland, Walt Disney World and numerous cherished children’s films, resided from 1932 to 1950, is available for a monthly lease of US$40,000.

Known for his extraordinary contribution to the world of animation, Walt Disney’s legacy pervades the very walls of this enchanting mansion.

With the success of his Mickey Mouse and Silly Symphony films, Disney purchased a plot of land in Los Feliz, where he envisioned and crafted timeless classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Pinocchio.

In fact, the home’s original theatre, where Disney viewed the daily progress of his legendary films, is a significant feature of the property, now updated with cutting-edge technology, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.

The mansion, currently owned by Kazakh filmmaker and Disney aficionado Timur Bekmambetov, was designed by architect Frank Crowhurst.

Displaying a captivating blend of French Provincial, Country Tudor, and Neo-Gothic styles, this four-bedroom mansion features a cobblestone motorcourt, stained glass windows, and a whimsical turret, all swathed in verdant vines.

Upon entering the home, visitors are greeted with a grand two-storey living room, complete with wood-paneled walls, vaulted wood-beamed ceilings, and a traditional brick fireplace.

The home offers stunning views of the gardens and the LA skyline.

The elegant kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, a central island, marble countertops, custom cabinets, and a walk-in pantry.

The spacious primary suite offers plentiful storage space, along with a commodious bathroom featuring dual vanities.

The mansion sits on a sprawling one-acre plot, featuring beautifully landscaped walkways, lush lawns, a large swimming pool, and a trellised outdoor dining area.

A charming cottage-style playhouse, a Christmas gift to the Disney girls in 1937, still graces the yard.

The mansion is nestled in Los Feliz, an affluent hillside neighborhood adjacent to Hollywood and the expansive Griffith Park.

With the Griffith Observatory, The Greek Theatre, and The Roosevelt Golf Course a short drive away, residents enjoy a plethora of entertainment options.

Celebrity inhabitants of the neighbourhood include Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry, and Eva Mendes.
