Home of the Week: Brentwood love letter to the South of France
Set behind gates and screened by hedges, this 1925 home has been lovingly restored and updated to enhance its timeless beauty. Every room is lavished with artisan touches, from custom-made doors, cabinetry, sconces and chandeliers to vegetable dyed wood floors, French waxed plaster walls and wood burning fireplaces with antique French limestone mantels. 

Beneath the high-pitched and beamed living room ceiling, a spectacular 58-pane window washes the space in light. Nearby, a bay with triple windows illuminates the dining room. A den with limestone fireplace and wet bar welcomes guests. The French Provincial style kitchen, floored in antique French terra cotta stone pavers, is appointed with Viking appliances, a wine fridge, custom cabinets with limestone counters and copper farmhouse sink. A Dutch door welcomes in garden air. 

The home’s four bedrooms and three full baths are highlighted by a grand master suite with high beamed ceiling, fireplace and luxurious amenities. Antique French doors open to the lush garden and terrace. A charming second bedroom and hall bath complete the first level. On the upper floor, two more bedrooms and a full bath look out on treetop views. In the gardens, three leafy entertaining spaces are enchanted by the soft music of a fountain. 

A converted garage currently functions as a studio, while a motor court permits easy-in-and out parking from the street. This private, one-of-a-kind world is sequestered moments from Brentwood’s finest shops, restaurants and services.

The home at 343 South Bundy Drive is listed by Bret Parsons at $3,495,000.
