Always wanted to peer into a wishing well and conjure up a handsome prince? Look no further! Your dream home awaits in the quaint Larchmont Village neighborhood of Los Angeles. A 1970s cottage originally designed and built for actress Adriana Caselotti — voice of the lead character in Disney’s first full-length animated feature film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” — has popped up on the market. And though she’s since passed away, and there’s no sign of those seven little guys anywhere, this piece of Hollywood history could be yours for a speck under $2 million.
Per records, Emmy-nominated TV screenwriter/producer Karey Dornetto (“Portlandia,” “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens,” “Arrested Development”) purchased the residence back in May 2012 for a mere $915,000. She subsequently renovated the premises, which include three bedrooms and an equal number of baths in a little more than 2,200 square feet of single-level living space boasting whitewashed oak floors and soaring wood-beam ceilings.
Tucked away behind tall hedges and fully gated, the exterior of the cedar-clad structure is marked by a hipped, cross-gable roof, flared eaves, exposed rafter tails and cross-hatched clerestory windows. A striking double-door entryway opens into the spacious great room, which sports a living room containing a wet bar topped with burnished monkey pod wood and glass sliders spilling out to an expansive deck. A separate dining area connects to the kitchen, which is outfitted with a black-and-white tile floor, marble countertops, custom cabinetry, open shelves, an eat- island and high-end stainless appliances.
Three bedrooms include a pair of master suites, each with their own spa-like bath; and elsewhere is a powder room and an office, along with a bonus room that could easily serve as an art studio, gym, playroom, walk-in closet or another bedroom, according to the listing. Outdoors, the grounds are laced with drought-tolerant plants, and host an al fresco dining patio next to a garden holding Caselotti’s charmingly restored wishing well. There’s also an attached two-car garage out front.
