Gated and set back from the street and extensively and recently remodeled with good taste and high style, this single-level Brentwood home epitomizes the relaxed Southern California vibe at every turn. A sensible, easily flowing, open floorplan allows for all public rooms to open graciously to the expansive center courtyard and beyond, to the unusually large, gloriously peaceful backyard. This magnificent home is designed for full enjoyment of today's casual lifestyle. Extra-tall ceilings, walls of retractable glass doors, architectural skylights, light-hued wide-planked oak floors, beautiful built-ins and many walls perfect for showcasing art all symphonize to punctuate the interiors fashionably adding a joyful air, bathing this true home in tons of natural light. The entry foyer spills easily into the comfortable, skylit living room, warmed by its handsome brick-clad fireplace, high ceilings and wide-open access to the outdoors. The vast great room, also skylit and opening easily to the outdoors, features soaring, vaulted, wood-beamed ceilings, a family room, a defined dining area and a stunning chef's kitchen. And what a kitchen it is! As the true social hub of this home, this kitchen has a huge, Caesarstone-topped center island, Miele appliances, a breakfast banquette and a plethora of built-ins, benches, bookshelves, ledges and display vignettes. This space is not only architecturally splendid, but also, functionally, has all the bells and whistles any discerning chef could ever desire. There's even a built-in coffee maker, wine refrigerator and pantry. There are five bedrooms, four in one wing including the primary suite which also opens to the backyard. It features soaring ceilings, ample closet space and a beautiful, spa-like bathroom complete with a soaking tub and a large, glass-enclosed shower. The fifth space is perfect either as a separate-feeling bedroom or as a home office; its barn-door entry and very chic adjacent hallway stylistically elevates the space beautifully. There is also an attached ADU with its own kitchenette and bath, perfect for guests or as a wellness room. A fabulous laundry room and powder bath complete the floorplan. The backyard is undoubtedly "best-in-class". Mature trees create a spectacular, private oasis. The trellised patio space features multiple vignettes for alfresco dining and lounging under the sun and stars. An outdoor fireplace sets a cozy mood. There are wide open grassy expanses for kids to play upon. There's also a half-court basketball sports court and a sparkling swimmer's pool and spa complete with dual waterfalls. Added creature comforts include Tesla 16kw roof solar panels, two Powerwall batteries, a Tesla level 2 car charging station, Crestron app-controlled shades at interior glass sliding doors, Sonos app-controlled speakers throughout house, 2-zone Rinnai tankless water heaters, 2-zone HVAC with Nest thermostats, Ring camera doorbell along with a door/window/motion security system throughout the house.
