Here’s a wonderfully well-preserved midcentury residence in Pacific Palisades designed by A. Quincy Jones, the influential modern architect behind Walter and Lenore Annenberg’s Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage and a legion of other fine Southern California homes.

This one, a three-bedroom with two bathrooms, was built in 1954 and does not appear to have been updated significantly over the years (not in recent decades anyway). The interior of the 1,776-square-foot residence includes a dramatic pitched ceiling with exposed beam, skylights, and clerestory windows. A tall cinderblock fireplace and walls of glass highlight an open living room and dining area, and the kitchen features original tile flooring and countertops.

The house sits on a quarter-acre lot, which makes us a bit concerned about its future (the listing invites “builders” along with “lovers of Mid-Century architecture”). As is, there’s a lot to enjoy about the lush grounds around the home, which include gardens, a large wooden deck, and a romantic gazebo structure surrounded by walls of vegetation.

Asking price is $1.975 million.
