Rumored to be the first home Jones built for a client, 2362 Stanley Hills Dr—clad in dark wood siding with bright green trim—sits on a 9,765-square-foot lot in Laurel Canyon, backing up to a protected sanctuary filled with roaming deer, birds, and wildlife.

Throughout the house you see glimpses of the architect’s signature style emerging. Features include hardwood floors, a living room with soaring wood-beamed ceilings, two wood-burning fireplaces, indoor-outdoor flow, and a large circular window flooding the living room with tons of natural light.
