Tucked amongst lush greenery behind a storybook picket fence, this idyllic farmhouse exudes timeless charm and comfort while just moments from Brentwood’s ever-coveted San Vicente corridor. Replete with white cottage paneling, exposed brick and wood beam ceilings throughout, this four-bedroom home brings one’s countryside dreams to fruition without compromising the luxury of L.A. living. The property, located at 242 South Carmelina Avenue, is listed with Partners Trust Associate Partner Jane Dorian.
Beyond the home’s brick pathway, lined with perennials, lies a fanciful bold red door that opens to the traditionally charming foyer, boasting grand living spaces on either side. To the right, the great room is perhaps one of the most opulent and architecturally rich areas, ideal for both entertaining guests or relaxing while fireside.
Straightaway from the foyer is the formal dining room, an expansive space replete with rustic wood beams that accompany otherwise palatial details, including a chandelier and delicate furnishings. Nevertheless, the ambiance is nothing short of comforting as warm natural light inundates the space through floor-to-ceiling French doors that open to the central courtyard.
The movement continues onward into the kitchen, replete with a farmhouse design yet updated with state-of-the-art appliances for the modern-day chef. Showcasing an exposed brick backsplash, wood beams and cottage-style cabinetry, one’s most pleasant memories and meals would likely be devised right here.
The home is comprised of four bedrooms and five baths, including the decadent master suite. Featuring a vaulted ceiling and rich architectural details throughout, this grand second-story retreat also boasts a vast, spa-like bath with a large vanity and deep-soaking tub, in addition to an extensive closet.
Beyond the interior lies a central courtyard with dual seating areas, including a barbecue and dining space, making it the perfect locale to host a dinner party or unwind come sundown. Just beyond the brick patio is a far-reaching yard, lined with roses and tall hedges, that flows into an even larger backyard space.
Set upon a 9,000-square-foot lot, this charismatic architectural revels in the bliss of secluded, country living while mere minutes from Brentwood’s premier restaurants and shopping—a rare opportunity to fulfill one’s white picket fence imaginations in a prime Los Angeles locale.
