As we were staying at the Beverly Hills Plaza we walked past this house on the way to the Beverly Gardens Park. It is wonderfully quirky and well worth checking out if in the neighbourhood. There are some really clever little details in the garden as well as on the house itself. Very photogenic and I would love to meet... More

Very neat home located in Beverly Hills. Not its original location but neat history behind it and fun to look. Wish they'd offer "inside" tours. It's like a little Hansel and Gretel house in the middle of Beverly Hills. Very storybook and unique!

I grew up going there on Halloween and driving friends and relatives from out of town to see it. It is not to be missed. You cannot go inside because people live there, but the outside is just the perfect witches house with a broomstick on the roof, a moat, tiny windows. You think it is the witches house from... More

Located just off of Wilshire Blvd on Walden Drive. Easy to find! The house was used in a movie and then moved to Beverly Hills.

A very unique and whimsical house in Beverly Hills. If you're out driving around, then you should check this place out.

Reminds me of a little storybook Hansel and Gretel House. Captivating, you just stop on the street (one block off Santa Monica Blvd.) and take a quick photo or two! You don't have to get out of your vehicle. Quirky Spadena House covers all the details with the tilted, pointed, rooftops, odd, old-looking, curled shingles, bridge over the little front... More

I love the Witch's House, This whimsical, haunted cottage is the perfect drive by jump out and take a snap kind of point that you would not expect to be in the middle of Beverly Hills.

Very eccentric, imaginary and grotesque architecture and garden. I was just wondering if anybody lives there, if not it may be evaluated as a small museum house with matching interior decoration to its outer look.

The Spadena House is also known as the Witch's House and it is a major tourist attraction. Built in 1921 in nearby Culver City, the house was moved to Beverly Hills in 1934. It is a real house that looks like a witch lives there with its storybook look and pointy roofs that look like they are falling apart. The... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
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.
