A. Quincy Jones Survives Well In Crestwood Hills
Before we get to the house itself, I just want to share a little bit about what makes Crestwood Hills so cool for anyone that may be unfamiliar with the area. Although it’s a planned community, it came about in a very different way than the countless other planned communities that have spread across most of southern California like an out of control virus. Crestwood Hills began as a cooperative housing project in the 40’s by a small cadre of musicians to provide affordable housing after the war. Not your textbook real estate developers by any stretch, these were small time dudes - but with dreams and determination! And who do they hire to help realize their dreams? None other than A. Quincy Jones, Whitney Smith and Edgardo Contini, a trio of architects whose work remains at the very upper echelon of residential architecture. In later phases, additional homes would be designed by other master architects, including William Krisel, Richard Neutra, Paul Williams, Craig Ellwood, and Ray Kappe, ultimately making Crestwood Hills one of the most dense collection of homes with architectural pedigree in greater L.A. And the home featured here is not only one of those from the dawn of this utopian development, but it is largely unchanged.
