A. Quincy Jones-Designed Beverly Hills Residence: Foothill House

In the Hills of Beverly, 1962, A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons designed and built a stunning “post-and-beam” modernist residence for — according to UCLA’s A. Quincy Jones collection of papers —  Harry and Phyllis Sherwood, founding members of LACMA’s Contemporary Arts Council.

Located on a .78-acre lot just off W. Sunset Blvd. and midway between Coldwater Canyon Park and Greystone Park, the home features five bedrooms, four and a half baths, a sunken living room with eighteen-foot ceilings, walls of glass, two fireplaces, a courtyard with fountain, a pool/spa, and three-car garage.

This home is a wonderful example of well-preserved architectural classics that continue to withstand the test of time.

A trust sale, it listed at $6.499 million and recently sold.
