The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.

If you're in the Beverly Hills area it's worth stopping by to see. The house definitely sticks out from the rest of the houses around it, but that makes it even cooler in my opinion.

Beverly Hills, California is a mecca of outstanding sights to explore. One of the most unique and weird sights is the Spadena House located on Walden Drive. This outstanding house is known as the “The Witch’s House” built in 1921. A perfect home for witches and black cats. This home was moved from Culver City to Beverly Hills in 1934. This haunting yellow house has a sagging roof covered with strangely shaped black wooded shingles. One can only imagine that you have been transformed into the world of Hansel and Gretal. This dilapidated looking “gingerbread house” with its sagging roof is truly a Witch’s House. A white picket fence, surrounding the house, is made of warped wooded slats. The house is decorated with numerous windows with crazy shutters sticking out at strange angles. Some are fully closed, while other are partially open. The grounds are also something out of a nightmare. Twisted trees and shrubs abound around a moat and bridge. One can only expect a coven of witches to pop out of the house and chase you away. Be advised this is a private resident and access to the grounds and house is off limits. If you are interested in art, the weird, or architecture this facility is waiting for you. A truly remarkable building worth visiting. Most definitely will be returning in October for

Designed and built by a Hollywood Art Director in 1921, the famous witches house was originally an office and dressing room at one of the studios before being moved to it's current location in the thirties. The house was a private residence right up until the nineties, but has now been renovated and maintained as a tourist sight (much to the annoyance of local residents) and a set location for movies such as Hocus Pocus. Not one of the better know sights in Hollywood, but well worth checking out the exterior (you cannot go inside).

Very cute house worth driving by when you are near Rodeo Drive. We were told by a neighbor that it had previously been on a movie set and moved to this location and that, as would be expected, on Halloween, all roads in the area are blocked off from traffic because there are soo many visitors. Be sure to check out all the details outside the house, such as the fake alligator in the lily pond moat and the fake ravens on the rickety bridge and in the bushes along with the ‘scary’ No Trespassing signs and such. As this is a private residence, you can only stop by and take a look from the outside. Therefore, it only takes a few minutes to take a look.

It's the embodiment of whimsy, and dedication, and imagination.

Every time I'm in LA, I make it a point to stop by this picturesque residence. Privately owned, I'm sure the upkeep on this property is considerable & a big thank you to the owners for taking such good care of this iconic piece of architecture.

Sure to delight adults as well as children.
