Southern California is packed with intriguing and beautiful architecture, including a plethora of homes designed by seminal mid-century Los Angeles architect A. Quincy Jones. Take this two-bedroom, two-bath tucked in the hills above Brentwood, for example.

Boasting the expansive interior spaces and indoor-outdoor integration for which Jones is known, the 1951 home features restored post-and-beam construction and beautifully sloping roof lines. At 1,093 square feet, the home may not be as large as Jones’s more famous designs—like the Brody House—but this modest abode still brings that midcentury charm with a livable, airy vibe.

The home’s living, dining, and kitchen areas all open up to the outdoors and a verdant garden of greenery. A private outdoor shower and bath provides a serene escape from the hustle of city life, and a patio is the perfect spot to enjoy L.A.’s mediterranean climate.

If this early midcentury gem looks just right for you, 860 Hanley Avenue is on the market now for $2,395,000.
