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. It was a nice surprise that our guide Claudia from "We Love LA Tours" showed us on our journey and we were excited to... More

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

It is a nice to see. You can only observe it from outside, not allowed to go in. Reminded me of the houses tou see in the movies (fairytale houses).

We can't believe we wasted time trying to find this "Witch's House".What you see from the road is what you get-----it is fenced and not family-friendly. I would imagine children would revolt, seeing such an inviting house with no way inside.

What a fun place, don't miss this one. The house is right in the middle of a neighborhood in Beverly Hills. Very quirky! Check out the pics in the Internet, it's also called The Witchs House.

This house is a must see. It was amazing. it is hard to believe that this house is in the middle of Beverly Hills, The house had a moat in front and very pretty flowers. It is definitely "different".

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.
