The Ernest and Florence Bent Halstead House is an American Craftsman style home built in 1912 in Los Angeles, California.


Built in 1912, the Bent-Halstead House was designed by the firm of Eager & Eager for Ernest Bent. It was later owned by Bent's sister, Florence Bent-Halstead. The house features a floor plan similar to a Ranch-style house, far ahead of its time.[1]

The Bent brothers' construction company built the Devil's Gate Dam in the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena, California, and the Sweetwater Dam in San Diego County, California.
