Description
Exterior view of a Mediterranean style residence with Moorish elements, located on an unidentified street in Eagle Rock. The front of the home has a coved porch along the right showing three squared arches in a repeated decorative pattern and striped columns. On the left is a large arched window with a medallion similar to that of the quatrefoil pattern. Farther left is the driveway that leads directly to a two-car garage, which appears to be nestled next to the mountains. Eagle Rock is a neighborhood in northeastern Los Angeles that derives its name from a massive boulder at the district's northern edge, which contains an indentation that casts a vaguely bird-shaped shadow on the rock at certain times of day. In the 1880s Eagle Rock existed as a farming community with grand Victorian farmhouses and many exquisite Craftsman homes in charming neighborhoods. It became an independent city in 1906 and was incorporated in 1911; it also became home to Occidental College, designed by famed architect Myron Hunt, in 1914. Several streets in Eagle Rock are lined with historic and architecturally significant homes done in the Colonial revival, English Tudor, Craftsman, Georgian, Streamline Moderne, Art Deco and Spanish/Mission style.
