Excessive Mansion on Disney's Last Property Sells for $74M
June 19th, 2014 1:28 PM

Los Angeles' much ballyhooed Carolwood Estate—the 35,000-square-foot mansion on the site of Walt Disney's last home, which rumbled onto the market in 2012 with a $90M pricetag—has finally sold for $74M. In 1998 billionaire and Houston Dynamo owner Gabriel Brener bought the animator's old barn from the estate of his widow for $8.45M. He promptly tore it down—not even the property's charming Mickey Mouse gate survived!—and dragooned the neighboring property so that, in 2001, he could commission the construction of the megamanse of his dreams: an eight-bedroom Xanadu complete with 19th-century marble mantels, intense "use of pure mahogany," a wine cellar, putting green, three bars, two safe rooms, quarters "designated for help and special event staff," and a two-story oval foyer "with plaster-veneered walls, crown molding, and statuary and verde jade marble flooring," all according to the brokerbabble.
