Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

11492 Thurston Circle in Bel Air


Resting on a slight knoll, this redwood sheathed home, built in 1948 and designed by A. Quincy Jones, Architect, presents eye-catching projections and cantilevered balconies.  Sited on a landscaped and wooded lot nearing 1/3 of an acre, the Nordlinger House #1 would be an excellent restoration opportunity.

The floor plan of the home spreads out like a Y immediately upon entry, separating the public spaces on one side of the design and the private spaces on the other.

The living room, dining room and family rooms are all open to the centrally located kitchen.

A three-sided brick fireplace acts as the focal point in the living room with expansive walls of glass showcasing the property and allowing access to the backyard.

A glass-enclosed stairway leads to the upper level.

The grand master suite commands the entire second floor with a wrap around balcony and distant city views.

The shaded concrete and brick patio is great for entertaining with direct access to the dining room or living room and the flat lot is ample enough for a future pool. Perfect for a restoration project, this A. Quincy Jones home will surely get scooped up quickly.
