Frank Thomas Residence / Ted Criley Jr


If you are a fan of classic Disney, this 1940s Ted Criley Jr-designed Frank Thomas Residence in Flintridge, California, USA might have significance beyond the architecture.

Frank Thomas was one of Walt Disney’s Nine Old Men illustrators, the core animators and illustrators behind some of its most famous cartoons. Thomas was behind the likes of the wicked Stepmother (in Cinderella), the Queen of Hearts (in Alice in Wonderland), and Captain Hook (in Peter Pan) to name just a few. So quite a name.

His success no doubt led to prosperity and enough money to build his own home in 1949. This was a collaboration between house owner, architect Ted Criley Jr and landscape architect Garrett Eckbo, based around a substantial list of requirements from Frank Thomas.

If you want to own the place, you are looking at offers around $3,228,000 — via WowHaus
