A. Quincy Jones, FAIA—The Grant House, 1950. First time on the market. Located in the architectural enclave of Brentwood's Crestwood Hills, this is one of the finest examples of Southern California mid-century design, by one of its master architects. Built for the original owners in 1950, the house is sited to maximize privacy and outdoor space, evoking the experiences of seclusion and serenity. Two ample enclosed yards on a flat lot offer multiple opportunities for expansion. Exposed posts and beams, vaulted ceilings, concrete block, redwood siding, Douglas Fir plywood, tongue and groove construction, clerestory windows, and glass walls define simple geometric volumes and coalesce to heighten feelings of expanse and space. Retaining original materials and forms throughout, the house continues to express the integrity of the architect’s design vision, and is Mills Act eligible with potential for substantial reduction in annual property taxes. An open floor plan, organized along a central spine, three bedrooms, a family room, kitchen and dining area, merge with the step down living space to become the indoor focus of the house. The purest expression of form and function.
