Fancy a shag? Good, because there is perhaps a literal ton of shaggy carpeting in this stunning time capsule by architect A. Quincy Jones. Known as the Nordlinger House #1, the 1948 residence is described byAn Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles as “Very much under the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright,” and features cantilevered balconies and a redwood exterior. The 2,950-square-foot house devotes its entire second story to the master bedroom and its wraparound balcony; the remaining two bedrooms, a maid’s quarters, the centrally-placed kitchen, and that amazing brick fireplace are all on the first level. The listing notes this is an “excellent restoration opportunity,” and hopefully the lucky buyer will lovingly update the marvelous Modern (new carpet maybe?). A teardown would be a tragedy. The Nordlinger House is asking $1.75 million.
