House of the Day: Pixar Founder's 'Incredible' Home
Edwin Catmull, president of Walt Disney Animation Studios and of Pixar Animation Studios, is selling his Georgian Colonial estate near San Francisco. This "Incredible" 8,864-square-foot home in the community of Kentfield, Calif., sits on 2/3-acre, fully fenced lot and was completely rebuilt in 2000 by architect Steve Wisenbaker.
The home makes full use of the entire lot, boasting a large lounging platform, a meditation gazebo, a level lawn area, a dog run and a cabana room. You could probably "Find Nemo" in the 1,000-square-foot pool with an attached 40-foot waterslide. The more artistically inclined might enjoy the unique landscape art: "Tiling in Hyperbolic Plane" by famous mathematician Helaman Ferguson.
The art lovers also have something to ponder inside the house: A custom rendering in the master shower by Robert Stout and Stephanie Jurs. The master bathroom also features a free-standing antique ceramic tub, and two private water closets with auto-flush Japanese toilets.
Leaving the bathroom, you'll find the master bedroom, which has built-in shelving, electric shades, a hidden TV built into the foot of the bed that rises at the push of a button, and a large private balcony. There are also two large walk-in closets big enough for the creatures at "Monsters, Inc." to hang out. The three additional "Up"-stairs bedrooms have en-suite baths, all equipped with radiant heating.
There is plenty of room for "Cars," too. An underground two-car garage helps maximize the lot space, and guests can easily find room in the above-ground, seven-car auto court. Some other luxuries include a fully equipped gym with views of Mt. Tamalpais, a library with built-in bookshelves and an audio-visual system, and a pool room with half-bath.
The "Ratatouille" approved open kitchen has state of the art appliances, zinc slab countertops, an island with a vegetable sink and drawer refrigerators, a large walk-in pantry, and features a rare Charvet Caumartin Range Stove. Don't be surprised if you find a "Wall-E" trash compactor in there somewhere.
This house is clearly a Pixar-lover's dream, and can be yours for $10.9 million.
