Sharp ’60s Modern in Crestwood Hills Seeks Second Owner Ever

14-794011_5_0

Brentwood’s celebrated Modern architecture tract Crestwood Hills originally contained 150 residences designed by the team of A. Quincy Jones, Whitney Smith, and Edgardo Contini. Regrettably, one-third of those houses were destroyed by the devastating wildfire that ravaged Brentwood and Bel Air in November 1961. Now hitting the market for the first time ever is a Crestwood Hills house erected the year after the conflagration, though well in keeping with the architectural style the neighborhood is famous for. Per the description, the 2,901-square-foot post and beam’s original details include “slate floors, extensive custom woodwork and vintage kitchen and bathrooms.” The three-bedroom house also features walls of glass, a floating fireplace, a central atrium, and “commanding city lights, Getty Center, canyon and ocean views.” Sited on a .28-acre lot, it’s listed in a trust sale at $1.999 million.
