This lovely midcentury modern home in La Cañada Flintridge, California was designed for animator Frank Thomas, one of Walt Disney’s own “Nine Old Men,” a group that made up the core of the Walt Disney Company’s animators.

Known for his work on classics including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Bambi, and Cinderella, Thomas worked closed with architect Theodore Criley, Jr. and landscape architect Garrett Eckbo to create a “rustic modern” house, according to the listing.

Completed in 1949, the single-story, 3,500-square-foot house was recently placed on the National Register of Historic Places. With slanting rooflines, an exterior of wood punctuated by large windows, and a unique layout offering both openness and intimacy, the four-bedroom-three-bath residence features the best of the era’s architecture.

Inside, wood paneling, built-in furniture and cabinetry, multiple brick fireplaces, and extensive glazing create warmth and depth, establishing an oasis among the surrounding Vergduo Hills.

Sited on 1.77 acres of oak forest and located at 758 Flintridge Avenue, this special property is asking $3,228,000. Take a look.
