Fairytale-Style Storybook House In Eagle Rock

Los Angeles, California
About this space

The storybook architect-designed house is a unique structure in an exclusive location 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, hewn stone, stone inlay and/or stain glass windows. Unique original features such as 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. 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. We like to think that there's still a lot of creative energy remaining in the house. 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.” We are familiar with film shoots. We have had 50 film/media projects since 2017.
