A Palm Springs home known as “Walt’s Technicolor Dream House” has sold for $865,000.

The house, built for Walt Disney and his wife Lillian as a retreat for their later years, was owned by family members until two years ago.

The 2,443-square-foot, ranch-style house was listed at $899,000 in November 2016.

The four-bedroom residence recently was a vacation rental, marketed as “Walt’s Technicolor Dream House” for $1,820 to $4,840 a week.


Interiors have a special, personal touch — quotes from Walt Disney painted inside closets.

And if you look closely, one wall features a small, baseboard-level painting that appears to portray Walt himself holding hands with Mickey Mouse.


Set on a quarter of an acre, the house off the second fairway of the Indian Canyons North Golf Course has 180-degree mountain views.

The home was built in 1962, and the glass walls, backyard swimming pool and outdoor dining and recreation areas make it a quintessential Southern California, midcentury modern spot.


Klint Watkins of HK Lane Real Estate/Christie’s International Real Estate was the listing agent.

Disney died in December 1966 at the age of 65.

Many years ago, he sold a different Palm Springs home — built in 1948 — to help him fund a visionary project.

You know the name.
