While the AIA Gold Medal laureate was most prolific in his native Arkansas, Jones’ inspiring work can also be found in nearby states including Tennessee, where he completed his first residence outside of his home state in 1965.
Located in East Memphis and beautifully integrated into its surroundings, this architectural masterpiece—the largest commission of his career at that time—has surfaced on the market for $1,795,000.
Completed over the course of three years, the Memphis home at 5715 Sycamore Grove Lane was designed for Sam and Jody Hunter. The 4,300-square-foot house was sold to Barry Gildea in 2012 and has seen over $800,000 in improvements that have stayed sensitive to Jones’ original vision.
Marked by an abundance of vertical glazing and a long, low-lying profile, the four-bedroom, three-bath residence seamlessly blends into its 1.27-acre wooded lot. Natural light floods the interiors dressed in a locally sourced palette of cypress, flagstone, and Arkansas fieldstone, as well as custom detailing throughout.
