Eagle Rock’s biggest house comes with an equally large DWP bill

A presentation last night about the Bekins-Lane-Kvassay mansion in Eagle Rock revealed some interesting facts about what is said to be the largest home in the neighborhood. The 3-1/2 acre estate actually includes three houses, about half a dozen bars and a free-standing “bistro.” The main house, built in 1927, has three floors, a ballroom and two full kitchens, said owner Robert Kvassay, whose family purchased the property in 1965. But perhaps the fact that generated the biggest reaction from the audience was the size of the Department of Water and Power bill that Kvassay recently paid: $3,700.
