Listing of the Day
Location: Covina, Calif.
Price: $5.588 million
For those looking for whimsy, this large Covina residence—called “The Castle in The Sky” by its original builders—keeps childhood dreams alive.
The owners “have a history of buying homes, fixing them up and selling them. For this home, though, they went all out,” said listing agent Geni Addicott of Coldwell Banker Top Team.
The residence’s interior includes rustic stonework, wood finishes and marble countertops alongside a slew of more whimsical details, such as laser-cut travertine flooring with fleur-de-lis design and ornate metal chandeliers. Containing a grotto-style shower, a wall-length winter landscape painting and a tiny “mouse home” complete with tiny furnishings hidden in one of the walls, the residence is a compendium of fairytale features.

More direct Disney references, however, can be seen in some of the home’s most striking amenities. The 80,000-gallon “Pirates of the Caribbean”-themed pool, for instance, comes complete with a pirate ship, winding waterway and its very own water cannon. For burgeoning knights, meanwhile, a stone-bound Excalibur lets guests test their might and prove their worth (a task made easier by a remote control, which conveniently frees the sword).
Attention to detail extends outside, too. “Perfect little walking trails” wind through the property, Ms. Addicott said, while easy-to-handle dwarf plants and a well-designed drip system simplify maintenance on the over four-acre property.
On 4.32 acres of landscaped grounds, the 7,238-square-foot home has four bedrooms, five full-bathrooms and two partial-bathrooms.
Describing the likely homeowner as a “high-level executive” in the entertainment industry, Addicott notes the residence’s proximity to the freeway makes it ideal for those commuting into Los Angeles. In fact, conveniently located just 26-miles from L.A. proper, the residence is both comfortably within driving distance of the city and comfortably outside it.
Due to its whimsical interior and impressive amenities, the home has been featured in numerous television shows and films. The pirate-themed pool has attracted channels like HGTV, and the quirky interior has made the home a popular shooting location for Hallmark channel originals.
