‘Dallas’ Star Linda Gray  Lists Mid-Century Modern Home Designed by  A. Quincy Jones for $3M

by Jenny Schafer

Linda Gray is ready to part ways with the charming Santa Clarita property she’s been calling home for the past  five decades.

The actress, best known for her role as Sue Ellen Ewing, the better half of Larry Hagman’s character J.R. Ewing on the CBS TV drama series Dallas,  has been living here for 50 years. 

The Emmy Award-nominated actress fondly recalls buying the land, which was considered to be the middle of nowhere 50 years ago.

Her husband, who was the art director at Warner Brothers Records, then asked his friend - legendary architect A. Quincy Jones - to build their dream house on the secluded lot.

The end result: a spectacular architectural home that's warm and inviting. But you don't have to take our word for it; instead, let's tour the house and see its most unique features.

The celebrity home  is clad in warm wood  - both inside and out

Gray says the floor is made of heart pine, meaning the heart of the pine tree, sourced from a New Orleans schoolhouse.

The private California compound consists of   two homes

The main house has 3 bedrooms  and a striking primary bathroom  with a freestanding fireplace and  glass walls.

There’s also an ultra-charming guest house on the property, which comes with its own living room, and two extra bedrooms. 

The kitchen was designed by architect Josh Schweitzer

Schweitzer is a self-proclaimed food lover that’s married to famous TV chef and cookbook author Mary Sue Milliken

He fitted the kitchen with beautiful racks to hang pots and pans out in  the open, pro-style appliances and  a pizza oven.

Sitting on 2.7 acres of lush land, the property has countless amenities
