12345 Deerbrook Lane, built in 1958 by self-taught modernist architect Harry Gesner, has hit the market at $5.395-million. The beautiful Brentwood mid-century was fully renovated by the award winning, design firm of Griffin Enright Architects.
Gesner’s homes celebrate California’s dramatic landscapes, from their vast canyons to their jutting cliffs. The most famous of his designs is the Wave House, a circular beach-bound Malibu home that was first designed on Gesner’s own longboard.
Griffin Enright Architects have received more than 50 commendations for design excellence, including the American Architecture Award, the American Architecture Prize, and multiple AIA awards. Their works have also been featured extensively in international publications and exhibitions. Founded by Margaret Griffin, FAIA, and John Enright, FAIA, LEED AP, the firm took on the Deerbrook estate and transformed it into a bona fide masterpiece.
The wood-lined exterior siding and wood-accented interior spaces in this Mid-Century exude the feeling that one is living amongst nature. With five beds and six baths, the home has an elegant open floor plan with Arcadia and Fleetwood doors, as well as Western windows that pour natural light into every nook and cranny.
The home represents a consummate destination for the homebuyer seeking luxuriously modern yet comfortable living. This is highlighted by the picturesque outdoor spaces which include a pool, space, fire pit and dining area. Surrounded by lush landscaping, a panoramic outlook boasts city and ocean views.
Simply put, “this re-imagined Harry Gesner masterpiece is one of the best mid-century homes available on the market,” said listing agent Matthew Schwartz.
