Now jazzing up the market in Silver Lake is a Storybook-style residence designed by architect Jean-Louis Egasse. A Parisian immigrant, Egasse designed a handful of period-revival homes around Southern California, most notably Eagle Rock’s historically landmarked Egasse-Braasch House, colloquially known as “the Good Will Hunting House.”

Built in 1924, the compound property contains a two-story main house with three bedrooms and three baths, plus a separate one-bedroom, one-bath cottage.

Since last on the market, both structures have undergone a thorough makeover by design and development firm Habhouse; however, per the listing description, “all components and details have been attended to with original recovered materials or meticulously sourced items.”

Standout features of the revamped residence include clinker brick accents, wood-beam ceilings, wrought-iron sconces and light fixtures, French doors, archways, built-in shelving and seating, and stained-glass windows. Outside, there’s an expansive deck, a patio with outdoor fireplace, and a yard with mature trees and succulents.

Asking price is $1.988 million.
