Originally built by Wallace Neff in 1968 and later beautifully expanded by architect Robert A.M. Stern in 1999, this 9,000+ square-foot Brentwood French Manor Estate sits behind private gates on approximately 1.6 acres of lush grounds on one of the most coveted streets in Brentwood. Exuding simplicity and strength, the characteristics of this home are famously recognizable as being from Neff’s hand. In fact, Neff was largely responsible for developing Southern California’s distinct architectural aesthetic known as the “California” style.
Sumptuous and chic, brick wrap the horizontal exterior walls. Second story windows carry slightly into the roof dormers while ground floor windows resemble French Doors.
Guests are greeted by the oval, two-story central hall that rises as the focal point of the classical plan. Surrounded around the center of the floor plan are the living, dining and family rooms.
Neff’s trademarked vaulted-wood framed ceilings can be seen throughout.
The master suite features separate dual baths and elaborate walk-in closets.
Three full guest suites adorned with intricate attention to detail and maid’s quarters complete the upstairs, making it perfect for the most discerning buyer who wants to have it all.
An entertainer’s dream come true, the estate also boasts park-like gardens, pool and spa with pool house, state-of-the-art gym, guard house, security system and a 3,000-square-foot two-story guest house with matching oval entry, digital screening room and a clay tennis court and pavilion.
