1939 - The A. Quincy and Ruth Jones House and Office/Studio, 8661/8663 Nash Drive, Los Angeles CA. Quincy Jones bought the property deemed unbuildable from a Mr. Anderton (who later became a client), and built two adjacent houses. One was to be used as a rental.

In 1955, during the 'House That Home Built' period, the Drummonds visited Eichler and toured several of his subdivisions. "We called on him because he was a volume builder, he had some good techniques, and he was a nice person," Drummond said. "We saw his plans and he told us who he had working for him. We called (Jones) and he went to work for me." The resulting plan was the 'Castilian,' the biggest and most lavish plan that Drummond would build. The 1956 Castilian was a quintessential Jones and Emmons H-plan, with terraces facing front and back. This addressed the criticisms that earlier Eichler H-designs had unceremonious entrances. The Castilian proudly turned its broad gable and its larger fenced entry terrace to the street, foreshadowing the Eichler atriums.

In December 1964, the San Bernardino County Sun ran an interview about her developing five homes in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. This was her own house, designed by Jones and Emmons.
According to her daughter
called [the Jones/Emmons design] the upside-down house, since the majority of the house
was up the glass enclosed stairs - half way up there was a sliding door to the
pool, continuing to the top of the stairs you would be in the dining/living
room. Traveling north on Bundy Drive a small portion of Benmore was on the
left. Our house came first. There was a driveway to the top of a small rise
where two homes were built. We referred to the third spec house as "hanging over
the side" of the driveway. "

The June 13, 1965 article in the Long Beach Independent Press Telegram has an article on the construction. The article appears to be talking about apartment units, not houses, so unclear if Ponte Vista was part of his design.

In 1954, Paul Trousdale (1915–1990) purchased the grounds, while the mansion was purchased by industrialist Henry Crown(1896–1990).

1976 - The Alexander Hixon House Alterations and Additions, 1100 Paso Alto Road, Pasadena CA. Commissioned 1971. Original house designed by architect Thornton Ladd in 1949/1954. The property consisted of two lots with houses and a third lot with a house that was to be demolished and rebuilt. Since Alto East was originally designed for Mr. Ladd's mother I'm assuming this must have been Mr. Ladd's personal property at the time. Minimal alterations were made for the Hixon's to occupy while the other construction was underway. In 1973 a garage was added. In 1976 Alto West was built on the property where the 3rd house that was in bad condition, was demolished.

In September 2013, Belzburg-Hagy Architects and Builders took out building permits for a single family dwelling. According to Property Shark there was a home built in 1979.
