A. Quincy Jones, Architect :: Mid-Century Modern, 1950. High up in the award-winning Crestwood Hills of Brentwood, with sweeping city and ocean views all the way to Palos Verdes and Catalina, this historic home is one of the best surviving examples of the forward-looking Mutual Housing Association’s postwar experiment. Residence in the community guarantees placement in the highly-desirable Crestwood Hills Preschool, Kenter Canyon Charter School is within walking distance, and the spacious community park adjoins Camp Tumbleweed. The architecture is elegant and sublime, with form following function: post and beam construction, tall ceilings, glass walls, clerestory windows, and an open plan with tall doors that open onto patios and private gardens on all sides. Redwood siding; cork, hardwood, and polished concrete floors; and an authentic wood-burning fireplace that worms the heart of the home. Apply for historic designation and Mills Act to save on property taxes. Large double lot.
