Victor McLaglen’s former home in La Canada Flintridge goes on the market

A La Cañada Flintridge house once owned by Academy Award-winning actor Victor McLaglen has come on the market at $4.95 million.

McLaglen and his family named the home Fairhaven and lived there from 1929 to ’44. The 1.9-acre compound includes the two-story main house with basement, a two-bedroom guesthouse and a pool house for a total of 7,642 square feet of living space.

McLaglen, who died in 1959 at 72, won his Oscar for “The Informer” (1935). He starred with John Wayne in “The Quiet Man” (1952), for which he received an Oscar nomination.

The property last changed hands in 1986 for $875,000, according to public records.
