In the same family since it was built in 1950, this home in the architecturally significant Brentwood neighborhood of Crestwood Hills is hitting the market for the first time.

The original owners walked into the sales office of the Crestwood Mutual Housing Association and picked this model out themselves, says The Agency’s Max Nelson, who holds the listing. They picked a doozy.

Designed by A. Quincy Jones, the three-bedroom house is just shy of 2,000 square feet. The house is pretty much pristine, retaining its concrete block interiors, exposed beam ceilings, clerestory windows, and Douglas Fir plywood interiors.

The house is so original, it doesn’t even have central air and heating. The place has been impeccably maintained, Nelson says.

“This is the ultimate opportunity for a midcentury aficionado to restore” a place and bring it into the 21st century, says Nelson.
