“Villa Di Fontani Estate was conceived with the same magic that brought the first Disneyland Park to life,” the listing on Realtor.com says. “Designed and built by one of the three original Disney imagineers Fred Joerger, this masterpiece also holds works of art by other Disney artists like Walt Peregoy, Tyrus Wong and Travis Johnson. This property, steeped in old Hollywood history is made to overwhelm the senses.”

There are also extensive installations of “classic bookend marble in all the bathrooms,” an outdoor garden attached to every bedroom, a plethora of fountains, stained glass clearstory windows and skylights and so much more, the listing describes.

“It was built by artists, so everything needed to be restored — the roof, the skylights, the electrical, the plumbing, the septic tank, the pool, and all the artistic details,” current owner and listing agent Raffy Krikorian said to Realtor.com.
