Open House Obsession: Marmol Radziner Create a Sanctuary in Brentwood, $6.5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 868 Leonard Road, Brentwood
When: Sunday, July 24 from 2:00PM-5:00PM
What: A recently-completed 5-bed, 5-full bath/2-half bath sanctuary designed by the eminent LA architectural firm of Marmol Radziner, hitting all the right notes in layout, details and ambiance. Below, the austere street front is softened by an entry courtyard (at top) that sets a calming tone for the rest of the house.
Once inside, the world fades away and boundaries blur– the architects treated the outdoor spaces with as much care as the rooms inside.
What We Love: A simple, limited palette that visually unifies the entire house.
Below, the kitchen is at the heart of the house, intelligently tucked up against the garage and a subtantial laundry room, pantry and storage.
At the top of the stairs, this private family retreat is central to the three ensuite bedrooms and handsome master suite. All the windows are equipped with concealed electric shades.
More: Go to the agents’ outstanding dedicated site for floor plans, additional images and details– and a video. Below, the back of the house, embracing the pool and landscaping.
