Looking for an Eagle Rock historical French Nordic farmhouse? Here it is! Originally part of a late 1800s working farm, later purchased in the 1900's by Albert Braasch, an Eagle Rock pioneer and entrepreneur, who commissioned the architect Jean L. Egasse to design the farmhouse along "Norman lines, such as were left by the decedents of the Vikings, following their journey from an ante-medieval period, were the main source of inspiration." ("California Southland, December 1923").
The collaboration between architect and owner is evident in the architect's "French-cum-Nordic" theme mingling medieval with storybook fastasy, as noted in the book "Los Angeles: An Architectural Guide", "expecting Hansel and Gretel to appear at any moment”.
Ben Affleck, a former student at nearby Occidental College, lived in the house with then-roommate and co-writer Matt Damon while they wrote the script for Good Will Hunting, which would go on to win them a Best Original Screenplay Academy Award.
The kitchen bursts with natural light and faces an incredible view.
Only a view that could be found in the Ealge Rock hills of Southern California.
And beautifully framed by the front walls of the porch.
Every home needs a name..."MACASTLE."
The home is located at 2327 Hill St., in Eagle Rock and is priced at $899,000. If you'd like to see this magnificent Eagle Rock historical Nordic French farmhouse, give me a call! Jayne, 213/309-5005.
