the witch's house in beverly hills

When I was in 8th grade,
I would walk past this house everyday
on my way to school.

It’s always been known as the
“Witch’s House” in Beverly Hills,
and on Halloween night,
this was the first house my friends and I
wanted to trick-or-treat at!

The crowds gathered on the corner,
and a thick fog enveloped the house.
Such memories! 

Today, this iconic house has been
lovingly preserved to maintain its historic charm
and quirky curb appeal.
It’s now actually owned by
a guy I went to high school with,
Michael Libow.

Originally known as the Spadena house,
it was moved to this location on Walden Drive
in 1924 from the Willat Studios lot in Culver City,
where it had previously  been used as
an office and dressing room.

Michael has updated the home
but maintained its storybook quality.

If you’re ever in the neighborhood, be sure to drive by,
especially on Halloween night!
