1433 N Kenter: Midcentury Reimagined

Brentwood's brand new designer luxury Mid-Century home, 1433 N Kenter is a breathtaking experience. A private, one-of-a-kind architectural property features sweeping ocean and canyon views with sensationally refined details that create an extraordinary, chic and warm home environment perched in a highly desirable, safe and private neighborhood.

“The starting point for this project was the midcentury modern look of the grounds and the house,” remembers designer Craig Higgins. “We decided to keep most of the bones and to give an uplifting, more contemporary look at the same time.”

Adorned with furniture and lighting by the likes of Holly Hunt, Liaigre, Bellini, Mariano Fortuny, Piet Boon and Tiffany, and artworks by Ahmet Ertug, Moeko Maeda, Shen Quan and Ori Gersht, the interior spaces play host to eco-friendly details, ultra-high-end finishes, a Lutron solar lighting system, an Aquasana water filtration system, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances in the chef’s kitchen and a Bang & Olufsen sound system, among other luxe features.

“The mirrors expand the space and reflect the incredible views to transform them into art for the home,” says Craig Higgins.

Situated in Brentwood‘s coveted Crestwood Hills neighborhood, the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home comes turnkey with several custom elements such as the art piece in bronze, silver and gold leaf backing that conceals the TV.

“It sits over the fireplace in the living room and can be seen immediately upon entering the home, setting the tone for a tranquil living environment not altered by tech features, even though the home is full of them,” says agent David Berg, founding partner of Smith & Berg Partners at Compass.

Every room was positioned toward unobstructed canyon, city, and ocean views.

“I’ve always loved how architectural design can seamlessly incorporate a home into its natural environment,” says agent F. Ron Smith, founding partner of Smith & Berg Partners at Compass.

“This property at 1433 N. Kenter Ave. is an example of just that.”

And Smith & Berg Partners’ agent Parisa Schnider adds: “The owner values sustainability, integrity and beauty, which is the way the home was constructed.”

With every aspect and detail of the project carefully considered, this result couldn’t have been more perfect.
