Brentwood is known for it's posh and mature architectural personality. A home has just come on the market that personifies this feeling from one of the premiere residential architects in Los Angeles, Gerard Colcord. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart purchased the residence for $1 million in 1983 and sold it for $8.2 million in 2012. Quite a profit right?
A private and gated driveway winds up to a red brick facade and creates a classic first impression. My favorite features of the home are the dark hardwood floors, the 4 fireplaces, with the trademark Colcord beam, making each room a cozy and inviting experience. The living room fireplace is two sided, the opposite side faces outside to a patio lounge. The kitchen is chic with white marble countertops and large matching backsplash along the walls. Large vaulted ceilings and lots of light make for grand living with a connection to the views and foliage outside the estate.
The pool is large & has a pool house with a bathroom and kitchen, an outside cooking area and below the pool house is a gym. At the top of the driveway is a 2-story guest house with a bedroom & bath on each level.
This Country Colonial residence originally designed in 1951 by master architect Gerard Colcord is now available for $12.75 million.
