Unfolding over 2,202 square feet in Los Angeles’s Tarzana neighborhood, the single-level Calvin House was built in 1960 by famed modernist architect A. Quincy Jones.
Architect A. Quincy Jones designed the single-level Calvin House in Tarzana, Los Angeles, in 1960.
The Los Angeles architect is credited for designing over 5,000 built projects-most notably for Eichler-and for helping popularize the indoor/outdoor homes that have come to define California modernism. The midcentury-modern residence that Jones designed at 4965 Calvin Avenue has been carefully updated in keeping with the original design, and it is now available to lease for $8,750 per month.
Two sky-blue doors welcome visitors at the entrance.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home features heritage details including whitewashed walls, custom millwork, and wood-paneled, overhanging eaves that shade the internal courtyard at the entrance. In the main living spaces, lofty ceilings are crossed by posts and beams while internal "floating" walls exaggerate the height of the single-story dwelling.
