This truly welcoming home, lovingly cared-for by its longtime owners, is located in the very heart of popular Brentwood on a private, expansive, unusually flat lot.

Reimagined and expanded in 1990 by noted Los Angeles architect Howard Laks, this four bedroom, four bath Traditional has been renovated with a contemporary flair, masterfully executed adhering to the highest design and build standards using the area’s top designers and contractors; there are beautiful finishes and fixtures throughout.
