The guy who owned Walt Disney's old mansion was not able to get his $90 million asking price, and had to settle for a measly $74 million. Sucks, right?
Gabriel Brener, co-owner of the Houston Dynamo soccer team, bought the Carolwood Estate in a ritzy area of L.A. in the 90s from the Disney trust for $8.45 million and made some HUGE improvements over the years.
The mansion now has 8-bedrooms, 17 bathrooms and sits on nearly 4 acres. It features a pool, wine cellar, tennis court, library, gym, putting green and movie room.
The estate -- listed by Jay Harris from The Agency -- does not have many Disney touches left, but Brener held on to Mrs. Disney's infamous rose bushes, the tunnel ... and the famous Disney gate.
