      OMG, there are so many misspellings and grammatical errors in that listing. I would not buy anything from that listing agent.

              The house is really cute, I love that style. I wonder what the area is like.

                Good thing, too, because most listing agents spell worse than a three-year-old.

                    Interesting that the listing doesn't mention Walt at all. Although I'm sure that's the reason the price is so high.

                        $769,000 for a 2 bedroom / 1 bath home??? Even considering it's history that's outrageous. And I thought I lived in an overpriced neighborhood!

                          It's in LA. All houses are pricey in LA. I think it will probably sell in the in 580k range though.

                            I'm no expert in that neighborhood, but it still seems overpriced. By the way, two blocks away is the original Disney studio, now a copy/fax shop.

                            And it's horrendous how poorly many listings are written. I've seen listings for million dollar homes that were just riddled with blatant spelling/grammatical errors. Count your blessings that at least it wasn't written in all caps.

                            Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                                It's a typical old LA neighborhood that has seen better times. The area hit bottom in the '80's, and has see a great turnaround over the past few years. Only because of the desirable nature of these California bungalows and the Walt Disney provenance, I'm sure this home will sell in the high 500 or low 600 figure. But this particular house has seen a slow decline over the years and will need some TLC; possibly another $75 to $100 thousand to bring it back to life.

                                The home where Walt and Roy rented the upstairs room, when they worked at the Kingswell Studio, is across the street.

                                The two bookend homes that Walt and Roy built is just a few blocks away on Lylic Ave and StGeorge St. This is the home where Walt gave Lillian the puppy in the hatbox. And the Woking Way house is just north of Kingswell home too.

                                The Los Feliz area should not be underestimated there are some really great homes there. Before Beverly Hills, this was the neighborhood of the Hollywood elite.

                                The ABC studio mentioned above was built in 1915, the same year as Uncle Robert's home, and was called Vitagraph Studios. This studio was sold in 1927 to Warner Bros, and where portions of The Jazz Singer were shot. It was then sold to ABC in 1948, and many classic TV shows were also shot here: The Lawrence Welk Show, Barney Miller, Fridays, Mr. Belvedere, Benson, and Soap. This studio was certainly one of the first studios that Walt tried to get work. Now his company owns it, and we have come full circle.
