The main house crowns a three-acre Eagle Rock compound. The story-story home sprawls over more than 5,000 square-feet of space that includes a soaring high entry hall, bar and dining room that “comfortably” seats 40 guests. If that is not enough room for you and your guests, the landscaped grounds include a trio of guest houses, a greenhouse, croquet court, playing field, “restaurant”, swimming pool and outdoor stage. Welcome to former Bekins-Lane Estate, the 1920s-era home of the founder of the Bekins moving company that is now called “The Chateau,” according to Redfin listing. The property on Hill Drive, Eagle Rock’s most prestigious street, was up for sale about two years ago but it went unsold with a $5.99 million asking price. Now, the estate is back on the market with a deep price cut. But that still means you will have to cough up $3.589 million before you can move in and host your holiday dinner at this Eagle Rock chateau.
