Michael LaFetra, who has restored more than fifteen mid-century homes in L.A., has listed this A. Quincy Jones-designed house after putting upwards of $1 million of renovations into it, reports the <a href="http://blogs.wsj.com/developments/2013/06/14/home-designed-by-a-quincy-jones-lists-for-12-million/?mod=WSJ_3Up_RealEstate" target="_blank">Wall Street Journal</a>. One of the most noticeable renovations was an elaborate waterfall feature along an exterior walkway set next to glass walls.
The home represents some of Mr. Jones's later contributions to the Mid-century Modern style, which emphasized integrating nature into the home.
The home's pool is a peaceful retreat.
The home features walls of glass that continue to blend the outdoors with the indoors.
A dining area in the open floor plan make the home feel contemporary and modern.
Another look at the open living space surrounded by glass walls.
The home possesses vaulted, wood-paneled ceilings.
A "disappearing" window pane in the kitchen, which also has a skylight, slides open to view the outdoor water feature.
The master suite features a spa-like bathroom.
The 6,000-square-foot home was built in 1963.
The home is protected by a private, modern gate.
