Smith House Gallery Smith House, Circa 1938
Brentwood, CA
4 Bedrooms / 5 Baths / Private Pool and Spa

Sold for $4,250,000

Commissioned in 1938 by the Robert M. Smith family, the warmth and charm of architect Alfred “Hap” Gilman radiates in this romantic Spanish-Revival Hacienda situated in guard-gated Brentwood Circle. Set atop gently rolling grounds, a low-slung, clay tile roof covers an expansive front porch supported by thick, irregular pillars. An elaborate, hand-carved door welcomes guests into the entrance gallery with original Spanish tile floors and creamy plaster walls.

An array of public and private rooms offer garden vistas and access to the oval-shaped pool and spa beyond. Designed in a U-shape around a mature Banyan tree, this home calmly envelopes all who enter. The interior incorporates hardwood and clay tile floors, hand-stenciling, wrought-iron work and numerous French doors inviting the outdoors in. Thoughtfully renovated details and upgrades delight throughout: the living room with massive fireplace and breathtaking wood-hewn beam ceilings; the formal dining room; a sitting room with fireplace, and the exceptional kitchen which features a butler’s pantry and nearby maid’s room with bath. The luxurious master suite with walk-in closet opens to the garden and pool area. A second en-suite features built-ins and is adjacent to a generous, custom-built dressing room. A third bedroom incorporates privileged views and is adjacent to the private study. Across the charming, brick-lined rear courtyard is a wonderful 650 square foot detached studio with a lofty, vaulted ceiling. Smith House is indeed a rare gem, created by a distinguished architect in a sublime location…an estate and lifestyle not to be missed!
