Notable Home Sales

Star Wars, Ratatouille and Cinderella characters fill this recently sold home in Disney’s Golden Oak

A home featuring privacy and some Disney magic just sold for $2.575 million in Golden Oak.

“[There are] Disney touches on the home, from carved doors to wall paintings, to iron details,” said Anna McKee, sales agent for Golden Oak Realty, who represented both the buyer and seller.


Both the great room and the kitchen of the 3,473-square-foot home on Mattraw Place are two stories tall, and Mickey is on the iron railing overlooking the entire area.

“When people buy with Disney, it’s a very emotional purchase because Disney is emotional, so we want to show some of these emotional touches in the home.”


Goehring & Morgan Construction built the five-bedroom, four full bathroom, and two half-bathroom home in 2017 with many Disney accents.

Solid wood doors have carvings of The Cars characters coming from the garage into the house, Ratatouille in the kitchen, Lady and the Tramp in the pantry, and Cinderella in the laundry room.

“The outside pool bath had Mickey Mouse with a floating innertube carved on the door,” McKee said. That wasn’t the only Disney touch outside. There’s also a large cement statue of Mickey Mouse by the pool.

The master suite is on the first floor, and four additional bedrooms are upstairs, each with a Disney theme; Peter Pan, Frozen, classic Disney characters, and Star Wars.

“My favorite in that room was little painting of Yoda down on the bottom corner, and then the Millennium Falcon up on the wall,” McKee told GrowthSpotter.

According to public records, Ryan Molis sold the home to John Federspiel and Judith Verrille. McKee said the new owners are moving from the Northeast and plan to make the home their full-time residence.

They purchased the furniture for an additional $100,000 and can move right in. McKee explained move-in ready inventory is slim in Golden Oak, and this home was only on the market for 16 days. It has a view of the nearby nature preserve, something that appealed to the buyers.

“It’s private. This family liked the privacy of the conservation view in the back,” McKee said, adding they also liked the size, price, and especially the Disney touches.


By being a homeowner in Golden Oak, residents have access to amenities like a private clubhouse, in-park activities, and more.

“It’s the feeling you live at Walt Disney World. Everybody can be a kid no matter if you’re a little kid to 80 years old,” McKee said. “People can just enjoy and appreciate Disney. You’re moving into a Disney community. It’s not just a home, it’s a lifestyle.”
