Years before architect A. Quincy Jones began designing his ever-popular Eichler homes, he was involved in another development: the Mutual Housing Association, today known as Crestwood Hills. Located west of downtown Los Angeles above Santa Monica, the community has preserved a small number of the original midcentury residences that Jones helped craft—and one just hit the market.
The home—built in 1948 and one of approximately 30 original homes that remain in the neighborhood today—was restored by Los Angeles–based architect Cory Buckner. In our 2009 story, Buckner recalls her journey from moving into the community to becoming one of its largest advocates, tirelessly working to have more than a dozen of the homes, including this one, designated as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. Buckner, whose practice has restored several other Jones-designed homes in Crestwood Hills, also wrote two books on the process: A. Quincy Jones (2002, Phaidon Press) and Crestwood Hills: The Chronicle of a Modern Utopia (2015, Angel City Press).
Offering three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, the nearly 2,400-square-foot home has been fully restored and expanded to accommodate a large living area and kitchen. The mostly flat, .40-acre lot also hides several surprises, including a 400-square-foot, detached ADU that comes with its own kitchen and full bathroom, as well as a pool and spa along the side of the home. Available for the first time in over 25 years, the home is currently listed for sale with an asking price of $3,200,000. Keep scrolling to see more.
The Schott House, located at 907 Hanley Ave in Los Angeles, California, is currently listed for $3,200,000 by Brian Linder, AIA, Rick Grahn of Compass.
