High up in the Santa Monica Mountains of Brentwood, with extensive city and ocean views all the way to Palos Verdes and Catalina, this historic Brentwood Mid Century Modern house is one of the best remaining examples of the forward-looking Mutual Housing Association’s postwar experiment.
Regarded as an affordable alternative for service people returning from war, the award-winning Crestwood Hills neighborhood has withstood the test of time and remains one of the most desirable places to live in the country.
Residence in the community guarantees placement in the highly-desirable Crestwood Hills Preschool, the Kenter Canyon Charter School is within a stone’s throw distance, and the spacious community park adjoins Camp Tumbleweed.
The architecture is elegant and sublime, with form following function: a low-slung roofline, with tall tongue-and-groove ceilings held aloft by exposed beams and slender posts, creating clerestory windows on two sides.
Glass walls welcome the views, and the open plan flows freely through tall doors opened wide to patios and private gardens on all sides.
Inside, natural materials express themselves unadorned: redwood and Douglas fir siding; cork hardwood, and polished concrete floors; and an authentic wood-burning fireplace that warms the heart of the home.
