Supposedly Ellen Degeneres just bought the Brody House at 360 S. Mapleton, Los Angeles, CA 90077 few blocks south of me. The Brody House and commissioned by philanthropist art lovers Sidney and Francis Brody and designed by architect A. Quincy Jones and interior designer Billy Haines. I almost bought one of his smaller homes on Tigertail ten year ago.

A. Quincy Jones’ style is unique. It’s a very open floor plan with lots of floor to ceiling windows. From the MLS description which is also linked below. This is from a sale from ten years ago. It just sold as a pocket listing. It backs up to the golf course so no rear neighbors. I went to a few events at this house. It is located directly adjacent to the Playboy Mansion, see plat map below.

“A Modern Classic. Commissioned in 1949, this gated A. Quincy Jones masterpiece situated on 2.3 acres in Holmby Hills resonates with today’s L.A. lifestyle. This essay of modernist glamour highlights the renaissance of two movements presiding over architectural thinking today: Mid-Century modern & Hollywood modern. Glamorous entrance to outdoor atrium living space. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows throughout allow the light-filled environment to integrate with the beautifully landscaped exteriors. This house ushered in the era of Southern California indoor/outdoor living. Living room with library area & formal dining room. Sumptuous master suite with family room, study, terraces, & his & hers dressing rooms occupy the entire 2nd floor. 3 add’l bedrooms & bths, and 4 staff rooms. Pristine kitchen & breakfast area. Colorful foliage, mature trees, specimen palms & rose gardens create a park-like setting. Lrg motor court, pool, 1 bedroom guest house, & championship lighted tennis court.”
