Fresh on the Market: Snow White's Fairytale Cottage is For Sale

This charming, wooded cottage looks like it jumped right off the pages of the children's book.

The Brothers Grimm published Snow White in 1812 and Walt Disney made it a film in 1937. One family loved the story so much they decided they wanted to live there — and they did!

It's unlikely that Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm or Walt Disney would have imagined the enchanted cottage of the Seven Dwarfs would be replicated as a family home outside of Olalla, Wash. The family lived in their fantasy home until 2005. The person who bought it continued the theme and lovingly enhanced the interior through the years. After 12 years of living in one of the world's most magical environments, she is offering her charming cottage for sale to the next family who will find just as much joy there.

The details in each turn of the home's wood, the intricate forged ironwork and each pane of stained glass showcase the exacting craftsmanship, imagination and labor of love that went into its creation.

Located on five wooded acres on a dead-end street behind a gated entry, the magic begins. The sprawling main house of 2,800 square feet with its extreme high-pitched and deeply sloped roofs looks exactly like it jumped off the pages of the children's book.

Blended into its wooded background, with a twisted wooden bridge and quirky but charming treehouse, it's hard to imagine there are four bedrooms and five bathrooms inside with every modern convenience, even if one must walk through the opening of a massive indoor tree trunk to see it.

The interior is unforgettable with stone, stuccoed walls, huge hand-carved beams and the most captivating rounded hand-built wooden doors of various sizes with intricate iron hinges.

Fireplaces and a wood stove, which begs a pot of simmering soup, promise deep warmth that only wood can provide, and the raised, rounded kitchen fireplace is perfect for cooking or crafting s'mores on a chilly day. With no square walls to be had, the interior of the house wraps around you like a big hug.

For modern folk, there is a hot tub/spa, patio for outdoor living, RV parking and a creek on the property with a garden area and fruit trees.

The tower "treehouse" in the garden comes complete with a small room with its own fireplace — a perfect spot to sit and reread the story of Snow White.

Now, for only the second time since the early '70s, Snow White's cottage is for sale, priced at $775,000. Sadly, the Queen's magic mirror does not convey.
