This lovely single-story home sits in the hills of Brentwood, on a large, approximately three-quarters-acre lot, and it has a wall of decorative white breeze blocks that offer privacy without sacrificing style or sunlight.
Designed by architect Kenneth Lind, the four-bedroom house still has a midcentury feel (it was built in 1959), but with lots of modern touches. Walls of windows, a double-sided indoor/outdoor fireplace, tall ceilings, and a large, open kitchen are just a few benefits of the house.
The spacious master suite holds a fireplace and large hearth as well as an en-suite bathroom with a double vanity and a large soaking tub.
Behind the house, a lushly landscaped yard holds a pool, the outdoor half of that two-sided fireplace, and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining and dining.
The nearly 3,000-square-foot house last sold in May 2016 for $3.25 million. It’s now listed for $4.495 million.
