Original home to eleven time Academy Award Winner Ben Sharpsteen. This traditional style home was designed by R.D. MacPherson in 1932. Mr. Sharpsteen and his family lived in the house while he was the production supervisor for Snow White and The Seven Dwarf, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Fantasia, many other documentaries and animation movies. The house still retains much of its original architectural charm including original door knobs and fixtures. The house is surrounded by mature trees that provide shade to the main house, guest house, patio and pool. The three car garage is situated under the house with vehicle access to it provided by the service entrance driveway at the back of property. The first floor of the house consists of a foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen and library with detailed wood work and crown molding. There is one housekeeper bedroom on the first floor and three bedrooms upstairs. The original laundry chute between the hall bedrooms is still functional and is convenient to the linen closets on the second floor. The original phone cubby and phone book cabinet is adjacent to the kitchen. The house has upgraded plumbing, electrical and two zoned air conditioning and heat. This home is on a cul de sac street and is located in a school district with award winning schools. The seller has the original blue print drawings for the house that may or may not be included in the sale as they may go to the Ben Sharpsteen Museum.
