$8,475,000 254 N BARRINGTON AVE, LOS ANGELES, CA 90049
Tucked discretely behind a welcoming, gated courtyard in sought-after Brentwood is a true home, painstakingly remodeled with great respect for its Traditional 1930s roots. Here's a symphony of relaxed elegance and sophistication, with comfort and style at every turn. Open and filled with sunlight, each of the public rooms is suitable for fabulous entertaining. The great room, with its coffered ceilings and banks of French doors leading outside, could be host to Super Bowl Sunday gatherings as easily as it could be to cozy movie-nights at home. The chef's kitchen, with its oversized island and top appliances, is nothing short of stunning and offers your guests a casual dining experience inside, or almost year-round, just outside through wide-open doors, alfresco, on the expansive veranda taking in treetop vistas of the glorious outdoors. The den is your perfect escape, masterfully crafted with gorgeous built-ins; it also works well as an unparalleled home office. With a nod to the California lifestyle, the indoor to outdoor flow is terrific. Over half-an-acre of manicured grounds and patio space includes many vignettes for dining and lounging under the sun or stars, enjoying the built-in barbecue, the infinity edge pool and spa, the vast grassy expanses and the sports court.There are six ensuite bedrooms, the primary in one wing with three other family bedrooms adjacent. The primary bedroom, with its romantic fireplace and uplifting, light-bathed-feel, has a Zen-inspired bath and expansive closet space. A beautiful, attached guest suite opens to the back patios and with its own lovely bath and kitchenette. The custom-built temperature-controlled wine room fits hundreds of bottles of wine. All this in close proximity to UCLA, to the Brentwood and Westwood Villages and to all the dining and shopping venues each provides. Close-by to many well-regarded private and public schools.
