BEVERLY HILLS, CA - Aaron Kirman, President of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of John Aaroe Group, has sold a coveted A. Quincy Jones architectural estate for $15M. Situated on one of the most desirable lots in Beverly Hills, a flat 1.2 acre street-to street lot on Rexford Drive just north of Sunset, the 7,718 square foot residence was acquired by a buyer from China to enhance his collection of homes around the world.
“It’s fantastically rewarding to be able to match a quintessential Los Angeles architectural estate with the ideal buyer more than six thousand miles away,” says Mr. Kirman. “Our worldwide connections allow us to showcase our properties to an international audience … and the approach pays off dramatically.”
The estate, a striking example of mid-century modern architecture, has been meticulously restored to celebrate the architect’s original vision and style. Walls of glass showcase beautiful grounds that include a lighted north/south tennis court, sunny swimmers’ pool and series of covered terrazzo dining patios.
Archibald Quincy Jones, FAIA (1913-1979) is best known for the grand homes he designed for Southern California’s cultural elite, including Walter Annenberg’s 650-acre Rancho Mirage estate and the Holmby Hills estate commissioned by art collectors Sidney and Frances Brody. However, he also designed hundreds of public buildings and thousands of affordable houses that broke the postwar tract mold with attractive, intelligently planned homes designed “from the inside out.” Jones influenced a generation of architects with his use of natural lighting, angled walls, post-and-beam construction, efficient spaces and sensitive site design aimed at creating privacy and melding interior spaces with expansive outdoor areas.
“Compared to the cost of upscale real estate in other major international cities, Los Angeles offers very attractive values,” says Mr. Aaroe. “Much of our momentum in the estates market can be linked to our global marketing reach and how effectively we leverage our connections to showcase exceptional properties worldwide.”
