For the third time in five years, a 7,718-square-foot Beverly Hills estate designed by the famed modernist A. Quincy Jones has been heaved onto the market for $15.5M. L.A. real estate developer Bo Zarnegin snatched up the five-bedroom house for $5.185M in 2003 and restored it in 2005, 50 years after its original completion date. The pad—bequeathed with the brokerbabbly appellation A. Quincy Jones Tennis Court Estate—was listed briefly back in 2009 for $16.9M, but, unsurprisingly given the market at the time, failed to snag a buyer. It was listed again in 2011, but still couldn't get its $15.9M ask, despite the fact that the property features a sushi bar, "lush grass & manicured gardens [that] lead out from every room," a vast master wing, and a heated pool. Like midcentury compadre Richard Neutra—whose residential designs have been hot on the market as of late—Jones' homes, including the one Jennifer Aniston snatched up last year, boast lots of glass, open floorplans that transition well to the outdoors, and a general low-slung aesthetic. Do have a look, above.
