The Stoleroff House, 1950, A. Quincy Jones FAIA /Whitney Smith, FAIA. Mutual Housing Association (now the Crestwood Hills HOA). Designed and sited to maximize views, the open plan interiors expand through steel-framed glass sliding doors to a city and ocean panorama. One has the feeling of being inside a pavilion floating in the air above West L.A., not just above Deerbrook Lane itself. Sergio Zeballos, AIA, supervised the sensitive updating & modernization of systems, the extensive wood built-ins, a primary bath addition with dressing area and the rebuilt 1-car carport (1996). The integrity of the original program remains intact. Mature trees screen the rear property line, providing near-perfect rear-yard privacy. A better prototype of postwar California Modernism as it flourished for two decades plus is hard to imagine. Historic-Cultural Monument #721. Mills Act tax benefits.
