920 N. Kenter Post and Beam Shines the Light

920 N. Kenter Avenue, Brentwood 90049
Yet another glass box I walk into.  This 1957 Mid-Century Modern 4 Bedroom / 3 bath home for sale located at 920 N Kenter Ave in Brentwood is waiting for a family to move in.  Nestled into the canyon, there is much privacy enjoyed.  Currently on market for a little over 30 days, it is listed at a very reasonable $1,895,000 for a very spacious home.  Listing courtesy of the lovely Kira Gould, owner.

When you walk up to the home, you are greeted by a lush drought resistant landscape and water feature.
The entrance is bright and inviting as walls of glass surround the interior courtyard with Koi Pond.  The tranquility of being nestled into the Kenter Canyon is immediately experienced. The line between indoors and out is nil.  Welcome to the Mid-Century!
The house is divided by the courtyard area.  You have the sleeping areas on the South-side including the Master and Jack & Jill.  On the Northern-side of the living space, you find a very large open layout including the Living, Dining and Kitchen areas.  
With the Living Room is a handsome fireplace to warm yourselves during the colder moments in Southern California.  The beautifully maintained hardwood floors throughout this home create a contiguous experience as you walk through this beautiful Mid-Century Modern home for sale.
This is a great area of the house to congregate with the family.  
The gourmet kitchen has an entrance from the front, which makes carport-to-kitchen very convenient.  With the afternoon sunlight cascading into the kitchen, it was making this kitchen look delicious.  Off of the Kitchen you will find the laundry area, guest suite area including the fourth bedroom & bath along with an intimate seating room to enjoy a book or just get cozy.
Like all the other rooms in the house, the tall Post and Beam ceilings elevate your soul in this Zen-like home.  Outside of this intimate seating area and through the wall of glass, you find another private garden area to enjoy.
Lush landscaping abound.  As you wrap around the back of the house, you come upon the central and tranquil courtyard area with Koi pond.  You can also see the sleeping wing and the Master bedroom.  

 The bright and airy Master Bath is filled with lovely fixtures and natural resources.
Down the corridor you find the Jack 'n' Jill bedrooms for the kids.

 At the end of the corridor is the second bath with soft natural light through the glass bricks.
 Centrally located Water Feature and Koi Pond footsteps from front door.
This well maintained and cared-for home is perfect for any family looking to get into the Brentwood area.  As it is walking distance from Kenter Canyon Elementary, this Mid-Century Modern home for sale could be ideal for a cool and groovy family.  And if curious, there is no pool.
This canyon property is situated on a 9,500+sf parcel of tranquility.  The last time we saw a change in ownership was back in 2003 and sold for $1,450,000.  Think about it, folks...  This is a good one.  With plenty of outdoor garden areas and patios to enjoy, why not?  It's a clean machine and ready for you.

Please note.  Buyer's due diligence and check all permits as there was an incorporation of a guest house into the main house through previous owner.  Now, the natural elements have taken over some of the area to create an airy flow into the courtyard.  So much better now.  Improvement well done. Below is a photo of the Guest quarters at the back of the courtyard area.  The added square footage is somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 square feet.
If this listing inspires you, feel free to give me a call, 213-305-8537, to set up a showing.

In the meantime, have a modern day!
