Nestled in the hills above Brentwood in Los Angeles, California, the Gross house is a classic midcentury property designed by A. Quincy Jones. Built in 1951, the home was featured in the book A. Quincy Jones, Building for Better Living, and it also appeared in an issue of Sunset magazine.
Jones was known for creating "glamorous designs for the cultured elite" as well as projects for the postwar period's rapidly growing middle class. This 1093-square-foot classic post-and-beam home has been lovingly restored to its original splendor with thoughtful, period-appropriate details.
The two-bedroom, two-bath home also features a studio space that's perfect for a home office or a writing room. The light-filled home has an open layout, and the kitchen, living, and dining areas are illuminated by a wall of glass. Sliding doors provide easy access to the beautifully landscaped garden.
