575 Worcester Drive Cambria CA 93428 | SC22074185

Large, three-lot, flat property that has been enjoyed by four generations of the seller&#39's family for 56 years. The house — built in 1930, with two additions — includes a detached garage that has an attached art studio. Great potential for further development and beautiful additional landscaping. Ocean view from the street. The house is 3.5 blocks from the ocean. A two-minute walk takes you to the trailhead of the breathtaking Fiscalini Ranch. A beautiful park — Andy’s Garden, on the northeast corner of Worcester and Guildford — is just 125 feet away. This was the home of David Hand — supervising director of the world’s first feature-length animated film, Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, as well as Bambi — and his wife, the seller&#39's grandmother, Martha Armstrong-Hand. An internationally renowned sculptor, she created some of Mattel’s original Barbie dolls, and virtually all of the figurines in Disney’s View Master series. A member of Disney’s hall of fame, she was once named “the most technically correct doll artist of our time" by a fellow member of the National Institute of American Doll Artists. She used the ample natural light, and peaceful environment in and around this historic house, to sculpt her masterpieces in the family room, and fire the porcelain in the studio attached to the garage. After Martha’s passing in 2004, the Hand House was inherited by the seller&#39's mother, Ruth Armstrong. A highly-esteemed artist herself, Ruth was beloved by the local community, and cherished the house until her passing this year. 575worcesterdr.com
