Stunning A. Quincy Jones time capsule in Bel Air returns

Described by An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles as “Very much under the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright,” this stunning time capsule designed by A. Quincy Jones is one of the best examples of mid-century architecture in Los Angeles.

Known as Nordlinger House #1, the 1948 residence was last seen on the market sporting wall-to-wall shag carpet.

While the carpet is now gone the home retains a distinct redwood facade and a 10,302-square-foot lot that’s screaming for a pool.

Opening to an enclosed glass stairway, 2,950 square feet of living space is laid out in a Y-shaped floor plan—cleverly separating the public spaces on one side of the home and the four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms on the other side.

Notable features of 11492 Thurston Cir include a distinct redwood-clad facade, cantilevered balconies, an amazing three-sided brick fireplace, and an entire second story devoted to the master bedroom with a wraparound balcony.

Last sold in 2015 for $2 million, it’s now listed for $3.195 million.
