Occupying over 60,000 square feet of lush, manicured grounds, this Disney family home rivals all neighboring real estate in the area. The property offers Mediterranean-style living, as the valley villa boasts views of the nearby urban jungle.

The sprawling main home on the property features 5 bedrooms, 6 baths and no less than 3 fireplaces. So where do the Disney quirks come in to play? The gracious and spacious formal entry is reminiscent of the Beast’s French mansion from Beauty and the Beast. Scale the stunning grand staircase in search of the west wing, or stop in the expansive living and music room to enjoy a tale as old as time.

Other Disney-inspired features in the home include a powder room, designed by Roy Disney himself, and a family room with a “Disney” wet bar. Yes, with a cocktail in hand beneath the beam ceiling and soft lighting, living in this home could really be like a Disneyland for adults.
