711 E. Mountain St., Glendale, CA 91207 Got to tour this exquisite, breathtaking, perfectly impractical 1936 Spanish Castle in Glendale’s equally beautiful Rossmoyne Historic District. Priced at $1,469,000, this beauty is perched regally atop a knoll were it rightfully belongs. Previously the home of a famed Disney artist, this magical home captures all your senses and doesn’t let go. While it’s 50 glorious steps to the front door, it’s utterly worth it. Embraced by treetops and with beautiful landings on which to rest on the way up, it feels as if you’re going somewhere truly magical, like out of a fairytale. Once you arrive you’re greeted by a pristine home from another time and place. It features gorgeous original floors, vintage windows, built-ins including an original built-in kitchen and endless romantic arches and paths to secret gardens — fit for an artist who’s job it is to create magic. Then there are the views! Two spacious terraces on each side of the house to take in sweeping views of both Glendale and Downtown LA. For more information, contact Vanessa Yan. 711 E.
