Snow White’s Japanese Garden Free For The Taking


I’m wishing these folks weren’t tearing these out. The new owners of the adorable little fantasy cottage Snow White voice actress Adriana Caselotti built in Larchmont Village are removing the charming Japanese-style bridge and statuary and offering them for free online. The home was custom-built for the late actress, who the New York Times reported, “dabbled in real estate and the stock market.”  I haven’t yet seen a listing for the wishing well with the face of Snow White that has graced the corner of 2nd and Larchmont for nearly 40 years. The house sold three days ago for just under a million dollars.  Why do people buy these distinctive houses only to strip them of all their charm and character? Updated 12:12PM: The listings have been removed from Craig’s List.
