A. Quincy Jones, Architect Schott House, 1948. City of LA Historic Landmark. One of the first built in Crestwood Hills, with a large flat yard, ample privacy, and views across the canyon, this home served as the model for hundreds of architectural homes in the neighborhood. Responsive to the terrain, sophisticated in scale and proportion, efficient in the use of materials, a novel blueprint for California modernism. Original details remain intact: post and beam structure, redwood siding, Douglas fir ceilings, articulated concrete block walls, clerestory windows, and large sliding doors that open to outdoor patios and gardens. Respectfully restored by architect Cory Buckner, the home has been gracefully expanded to align with a 21st century lifestyle, with new kitchen and baths, limestone counters, slate and hardwood floors, and an integrated pool and spa. 3 BD + Office, 2 BA, 2, 339 SF, plus a stand-alone 400 SF Guest House/ADU. Mills Act provides substantial property tax savings.
