This house in Beverly Hills, California is known as the Witch’s House. It was built in the 1920s to serve as a movie set and office quarters for a film company. I can’t imagine a more Halloweeny trick or treat destination.

And it’s clear to see that his home is a fairy tale inside and out. Happy Halloween!
