The owner of this property – a former Disney Imagineering executive – functioned as a Project Director of Architecture and Engineering for Disney Imagineering, worldwide, for nearly forty years and headed teams for designing and building many of the company’s standout parks and attractions.
These responsibilities, as you can imagine, required a skillset enabling an ability to focus on the components or elements of a structure or system and a capacity to unify them into a coherent functional whole. Hmm, sounds like the build-out of some of the fantastic attractions we so love and enjoy at Disneyland.
Possibly, the most important function among the wide variety of artists, architects, construction superintendents, contractors, skilled craftsmen and the like that work for Disney Imagineering is the Project Director. Imagine, now, what he would have done with his own home.
This Furniture Included property stands out as a master work of art as well as what we always refer to as a custom crafted home jammed packed with every amenity you would expect of a top shelf five-thousand square foot estate. The rear landscape architecture which includes a view-oriented outdoor dining area, meticulously designed pool and spa, hillside trails with meditation areas and cozy getaways, lush low-water landscape, though laced with mature pines, is very Disneylandish throughout; a delight to behold.
Did I say Furniture Included? Very important, now, and again like something you might imagine a Disney company’s project director to do, is that the home has been fitted with moneysaving devices like a fully paid for (not leased) solar power system that functions so well that annual energy use averages only $130 a month, even when running two five-ton 16 SEER air conditioners nearly full time during the summer. Without this cost saving facility, energy costs could average $400 a month, peaking at approximately $1000 a month in the summer.
The upgraded moneysaving water softener and hot water recirculation pump can run without incurring extraordinary costs because of special engineering as well. See the “Detail” link on the sidebar to the left to peruse a list of home features and improvements not found in your general run-of-the-mill custom home wherever located.
Meticulously maintained and upgraded throughout, only a home tour can suffice to define the features that imbue this property with a must-have sense of urgency upon a first visit. Oh, yes, one more thing. You would expect that a Disney exec would build a top-of-the-mark in-home theater with reclining seats into their home, wouldn't you? This property features one of the nicest in-home theaters I have even seen. Furniture Included means this all stays, less personal accessories and possessions and collectible fine art throughout (a detailed list provided upon offer).
You will, of course, want to personalize your interior design. Initially, though, the buyer of this property can save tens of thousands of dollars by moving into a substantially complete, turnkey property meticulously furnished both in and out.
