Peacefully perched in the Santa Monica Mountains, the Richard and Helen Arens House was originally built in 1949 by celebrated architect A. Quincy Jones. Recognized as the City of Los Angeles's Historic-Cultural Monument No. 720, the landmark home unfolds over 2,232 square feet, and it features four bedrooms, two baths, and a rare hillside pool.
The second owners have treated the property to tasteful renovations over the years, all keeping in line with the original design intent. From the low-slung horizontal roof to the tongue-and-groove ceiling that gently rests on composite beams and slender posts, the elegant architecture offers residents the chance to step back in time.
In addition to its impeccable midcentury details, the home is also protected by the Mills Act, which ensures a substantial reduction in annual property taxes. Scroll ahead to take a peek inside the residence, currently on the market for $2,995,000.
