A vision of architectural modernism, the huge nine bedroom home is located on 2.3 acres in Holmby Hills, rubbing shoulders with Hugh Hefner’s famous-or infamous some might say-Playboy Mansion. Named the Brody House after its original owner, art aficionado Frances Lasker Brody, who commissioned the famed Los Angeles architect Archibald Quincy Jones to design it in 1949. Along with A. Quincy Jones, interior designer Billy Haines and landscape architect Garrett Eckbo were brought on board to complete the sophisticated LA masterpiece.

The dream home was completed in 1951 and has been publicly heralded as a brilliant example of indulgent LA modernistic glamor without equal. Spanning a massive 11,511 square feet, the 39.8 million dollar home has glass walls and high vaulted ceilings that all contribute to its impressive and expansive feel.
