The storybook architect-designed house is a unique structure set on a prominent location with amazing light from sunrise to sunset.
Almost every room in this two story house from 1923 has carved wood fixtures, raw stone, stone inlay and stained glass windows. Unique original features include 3-D relief murals, nine built-in sconce lights adorned with floral touches. The most striking room is the entryway, with a 11-foot tall arts and crafts-inspired arched stain glass window. The entryway ceiling is over 25 feet tall and features a Juliet balcony and a "Norman Village" with external features on the inside of the entryway.
The French architect, Jean-Louis Egasse put it best when asked in 1923 where he got inspiration, “In this particular instance, Norman lines, such as were left by the descendants of the Vikings, following their peregrinations of an ante-mediaeval period, were the main source of inspiration. Saxony and Northern Italy were also borrowed from in carrying out the exterior. The curves and arches, although not symmetrical, are all geometrically related, in order to create an ensemble of harmonious lines suggestive of spiritual truths.”
Some of the long-time neighbors still call the house "The Good Will Hunting House" since Matt Damon and Ben Affleck rented the house from a previous owner during the time they were working on their award winning screenplay. There is a lot of creative energy remaining in the house.
We are very familiar with film shoots. We have had about 100 film/media projects since 2016. First, note that there is plenty of flat, open space right outside the door into the main filming area of the house. There is plenty of unlimited street parking in this film-friendly area of Eagle Rock. Several projects have commented that rooms are bigger in person than what they seem like in pictures.
