You could have called it the house that Disney built—except that little about this Mill Valley, California, home was magical when Cathy and Charlie Wilmoth bought it back in 2006. Believed to be a kit house built in 1955 by a Disney artist, the 2,265-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath home had devolved into something more worthy of Hitchcock. “There were army stickers everywhere, seafoam-green carpet in the bathrooms,” says Cathy, and a “fish tank” toilet seat with faux tropical fish suspended in acrylic.
