Behold, The Pinstripe House, A Luxe Re-Imagining of the 1950s, $7.75M


Where: 100 North Woodburn Drive, Brentwood
Asking: $7,750,000
What: A c.1956 Post + Beam classic, completely reinvented for 21st Century living. Given the extant volumes and expanses of the orginal house, it was pretty swell to start out with, and now the 5-bed, 5.5-bath exudes the kind of casual luxury that most of us can only dream about, in a pleasure dome for the ‘teens.

Dubbed “The Pinstripe House” presumably for details like the standing-seam metal roof and the custom milled cedar panels (below) that are actually garage doors and a service entry.

The Team: Interior and lighting design by LA-based Bruce Liebert; landscape design by Keenan Harlsten of the San Diego firm Pairfish.

What We Love: In a town where food has become a focus, there’s not only a spectacular dining room (above) but a dedicated outdoor dining terrace and kitchen– both of which frame an “entertainer’s kitchen”, backed up by a fullscale catering kitchen where the sometimes-messy business of cooking  and cleaning up actually takes place.

The master suite may be large and handsome, but its bathroom is breathtaking.

Worth A Look: the spectacular video site from realtor/developer Ness Krief.
