Description
Exterior view of a Craftsman style residence, located at 1631 Hill Dr. and Townsend Ave. in the city of Eagle Rock. The 3 bedroom/1 bath, 1,864 sq ft home was built in 1922 and sits on a 10,110 square-foot lot in close proximity to the mountains. In 2007 this home was appraised at $798,000. 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. In the early 1900s, Hill Avenue, now Hill Drive, was (and still is) one of Eagle Rock's most beautiful streets. In the 1950s, newer streets were extended into the hillsides and larger homes boasting views of the city were built. 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.
