The younger Disney died in 2009; he was 79. His home—a three-bedroom, three-bath, Spanish-style gem—is known as the “Jewel on the Lake.” It sits right on Toluca Lake and comes with a sweet boat dock.
It’s a hidden, bucolic respite right in the middle of the bustling city, and a wide variety of A-listers have called this little burg home. So you never know whom you’ll spot when cruising the lake in the Duffy Electric Boat that comes with this house.
Built in 1933, the property has mature and lush landscaping. The 2,443-square-foot home has been extensively remodeled, though its lovely vintage charm remains.
It still features the traditional tile roof, grand fireplaces, and wood-beamed and vaulted ceilings.
It has been modernized in all the right spots, including the kitchen with its stylish marble counters, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and both a peninsula and an island.
The home also has a fully wired his-and-her office stocked with plenty of built-ins—a spot conducive to being productive when not in the office or boardroom.
We’re sure the famous owners appreciated the discretion of a walled and gated courtyard in front, graced by elegant, mature olive trees.
In the backyard, the lakefront exposure is the focus. There’s a spacious deck overlooking the lake, a dining terrace with kitchen, a pool, and a lovely lounge with fireplace.
Besides Disney, horror movie icon Boris Karloff (“Frankenstein,” “The Mummy”) and Oscar-winning film composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold also lived at the address.
Disney was a longtime executive at his uncle’s company, and his fortune was estimated to be worth over $1 billion. The property is currently owned by the Leslie Disney Trust. Leslie married Disney in 2008 and was his second wife.
