Snow White Cottages (Los Angeles, California) (Video)

Located in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, the “Snow White Cottages” were built in 1931 by architect Ben Sherwood and were the likely inspiration for Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The cottages feature cragged thatched roofs, black timber framing and random patches of rusticated masonry and are a prime example of “storybook” or “fairytale” architecture, which was popular in LA in the 1920-30s. The cottages housed animators and stand just a few blocks from the original site of Walt Disney’s studios, where the animation legend worked from 1926 until 1940.
The cute homes still come up for rent now and again and were heavily featured in David Lynch’s 2001 classic, Mulholland Drive.
