Home of the Week: Mid-Century Oasis in Lush Kenter Canyon

Perched in the Crestwood Hills of Kenter canyon, this Brentwood oasis serves as a contemporary counterpart to its encompassing natural wonders while just moments from the best of Los Angeles. Mid-century architectural details emerge from the hills while lush greenery interweaves through structural finishes, creating a home that is both immersed within and distinct from its environment. The property, located at 908 Kenter Way, is listed with Partners Trust’s Smith & Berg Team and offered at $2,198,000.


Enter what appears to be a rainforest hideaway, inclusive of a free-standing portico lined with gardens, a zen fountain and an above pergola shaded by entwined tree branches. Upon crossing the threshold, luxuriate in a wide-open, single story floor plan as each room intersects with and complements the next. To the right of the foyer, the minimalistic kitchen serves as the epicenter for contiguous dining and great rooms, the main focus being the impressive view beyond walls of glass doors.


The two adjacent living rooms, one of which includes a dining area, fireplace and two full walls of glass, are comprised of an expanse of hardwood floors to parallel the natural expanse of the canyon. Both rooms boast an impressive amount of space to either unwind while admiring the great outdoors or to effortlessly entertain.


The opposite living room flows directly to an outdoor patio through vast sliding doors, where residents and guests of all ages can revel in matchless views while barbecuing, dining or merely relaxing as the rising or setting sun paints an ever-changing palette upon the canyon.


To the left of the home’s entrance are four bedrooms, each flaunting oversized windows and glass sliding doors to create a cohesive interior throughout and welcome the inpouring light of day. A separate guest house, located down a stone pathway, includes its own bedroom, bath and kitchen.


While the far-reaching floor plan is replete with modern finishes, the home yields its architectural prowess to the surrounding landscape. Thus, the property serves as a contemporary retreat amid the unspoiled beauty of Kenter canyon, making it the ultimate city escape.



908 Kenter Way is listed with Partners Trust’s Founding Partner F. Ron Smith and Associate Partner/Estates Director David Berg. For more information on this property, click here.
