Buy a Wood-Paneled A. Quincy Jones Time Capsule for $1.6M

New, 3 comments

Perched above the ocean in the Brentwood neighborhood of L.A., this angular A. Quincy Jones dwelling from 1950— the same year the famed modernist designed his much-heralded Brody House— is like a residential time machine, and the next stop is a UFO discussion at a Tupperware party. With its beamed ceiling, stone fireplaces, and pitched roofline, this three-bedroom spread is more rustic-looking than some of Jones' other work (the starchitect's sleeker digs are the preferred housing for Friends alumnae). Evoking a mid-century ski chalet, wood is used as a design flourish on the 2,225-square-foot home's walls, ceilings, and floors, and there are four very retro mirrored bathrooms with skylights. It's asking $1.595M.
