Matt Damon and Ben Affleck can pack in movie houses but they are apparently not so good at attracting home buyers.  The owners of this “Hansel-and-Gretel inspired”  Eagle Rock house on Hill Drive have played up the fact that the 1923 home was “where Ben Affleck and Matt Damon wrote the script for ‘Good Will Hunting’ which won an Academy Award for best screenplay,” according to the listing on Redfin.  But neither the Damon-Affleck or the Hansel-Gretel connection have been able generate a sale, leaving the owners to recently cut the asking price to $779,000 for the third time since the home was listed in May at $899,000.  In 2010, during a previous attempt to find a buyer, the home was listed at $1.35 million, said Curbed L.A.

  1. It also doesn’t help that this house is hideously ugly.

  2. I don’t imagine they much like ‘dem apples.

  3. My friend lived in the back house (also amazing), I’ve been in the main house – very surreal and very cool.

  4. That house rocks!

  5. Sold for 760 K on 2/17/12.
