This modern-style residence in Burbank sits alongside the LA River, less than a mile from Walt Disney Studios.

That must have made things easy for its designer, Disney artist Claude Coats, who built the home for himself in 1940—the same year that the company opened its new headquarters in Burbank.

Coats worked on many of the studio’s classic films from the 1940s and ’50s, and later transitioned to a role as one of the company’s “imagineers,” the artists and designers behind the Disney theme parks.

One of the original architects of Disneyland, Coats worked on many of the park’s most beloved rides, including It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Haunted Mansion. A set designer and background artist, Coats is often credited with giving Disneyland’s dark rides a moody and mysterious atmosphere.

His longtime home in Burbank is quite the opposite, with airy interiors and pastel colors throughout. Still owned by the Coats family, the house has recently been remodeled, but has never before been listed on the market.

The 1,807-square-foot residence has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a living room that features built-in shelving and a fireplace. The kitchen is equipped with a breakfast nook, and the master bathroom retains some nice vintage tile.

Sitting on a quarter-acre lot, the home has a grassy yard with orange trees and a classic kidney-shaped pool in the back.

Asking price is $1.279 million.
