If you love the midcentury style but don’t want to undertake a large renovation project, check out this recently restored gem in Southern California. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the house boasts a post-and-beam interior and open floor plan.
Designed by seminal mid-century Los Angeles architect A. Quincy Jones, the house boasts the expansive interior spaces and indoor-outdoor integration often associated with Jones. At 1,528 square feet, the home may not be as large as Jones’s more famous designs—like the Brody House—but the more modest “Lido” model still boasts the flat planes, angular roof, and clerestory windows so popular in the early 1960s.
Floor-to-ceiling windows open up to a patio off of the living and dining room area, and the 6,400-square-foot lot is flat and usable space. The bedrooms are compact, but functional spaces like a laundry room add to the home’s functionality.
If you’re interested in an affordable midcentury modern house with a starchitect’s pedigree, 3410 Las Vegas Drive is on the market now for $629,000.
