Midcentury Marvel

A rare Archibald Quincy Jones estate in Trousdale—an exclusive enclave of Beverly Hills—is now on the market. The modernist architect and University of Southern California professor, better known as Quincy, designed more than 5,000 commercial and residential projects in his 42-year career, including numerous single-family residences in Los Angeles that were built during the heyday of Hollywood glamour. Like most of the midcentury estates in the area, many of Jones’s projects have been significantly altered or torn down. This 5,500-square-foot house, which sits on almost an acre of land overlooking Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles, is one of the few that maintain the original design thanks to the architect Cory Buckner, an authority on Jones, who restored the residence in the original style. The round fireplace, sunken living room, interior planters, and circular pool all date to 1959, when the residence was built, and these aspects reflect the postwar focus on curved lines, large interior spaces, and smooth transitions from indoors to outdoors. The five-bedroom residence is listed at $19.5 million and features five and a half bathrooms, a separate service entrance, period-appropriate mosaic tile finishes, and vintage midcentury furnishings from Arthur Elrod, Charles Hollis Jones, and Tommi Parzinger, among other notable designers.
