Designed by Harry c. Oliver, the Witch's House was built in 1921. Film buffs may remember that Oliver was art director for Viva Via, The Good Earth, and Ben Hur. He won the first Oscar for design with Seventh Heaven. He also invented the cobweb machine. Mr. Oliver constructed this storybook building as the Irvin Willst Studio. Mr. Willst said about it in April 1921 "We have tried to reporduce a tumbledown structure of two centuries ago.." The house was originally built in Culver City. It moved to present location in 1929.

As the owner of the Spadena house, I can tell you that it is quite real. . .having undergone a top to bottom expansion and renovation over the past ten years, The Witches' House now resembles a Gaudi style cottage inside and maintains its funky bavarian roots on the outside. The studio for which it was built was call Willat Studios and the home was moved to its present site in 1926 to the best of my knowledge. . .I am the third owner and the most reverential keeper of 'the witch'as I call the home. Peace, Michael
