The house where Hollywood stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck penned the script for Good Will Hunting is up for sale.
The two actors rented the Los Angeles home in the early 1990s – during which time they wrote the script for the Oscar-winning movie.
The film, which featured an all-star cast including Robin Williams, Minnie Driver, and Stellan Skarsgård, catapulted Damon and Affleck to fame after its 1997 release.
The 2,187sq ft former farmhouse is listed for sale at $779,000 by LA real estate agent Michael Locke of Locke + Partners.
“At the time, they paid $2,000 per month in rent," reveals Locke.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom house was originally part of a 19th-century hilltop farm, but was subsequently revamped by owner Albert Braasch, who bought it in the 1920s.
Braasch subdivided the land and commissioned local architect Jean L Egasse to create a "French-cum-Nordic" theme for the property.
“Albert's wife, Constance was a music teacher and artist,” adds Locke. “She added her own touches with fanciful wall sculptures and murals, some of which are still intact.”
