A city landmark, the Richard and Helen Arens house is one of a collection of incredible midcentury modern homes built for the Crestwood Hills Mutual Housing Association—considered the only successful large-scale cooperative housing development in California.

Like some other Crestwood homes, 12436 Deerbrook Lane was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones. The four-bedroom, two-bath home sits under a low-slung room with wooden tongue and groove ceilings, walls of glass, and clerestory windows. The post and beam has been renovated, but in keeping with the “original design intent.”

Behind the house, there’s a pool and patio with views of the surrounding hills and the Santa Monica Bay.

The house is listed with Brian Linder and William Baker of The Agency for $2.995 million.

The kitchen has been updated in a way that fits in with the rest of the house.
