Home of the Week: Historic Renaissance Revival, gloriously redefined

A new chapter has been written for this elegant manor – an historic residence that’s presided over its coveted Brentwood enclave since the 1920s. Sensitively reimagined, it now marries past and present in a nearly 9,000 square foot modern Italianate estate with a timeless soul. 
The lavish impression begins in a palatial entry opening to a great room with walls of tall, light-streaming Palladian arched windows. 
Both the newly built baronial kitchen and nearby game room open to a broad covered deck overlooking the pool, sweeping lawn and resort-like grounds far below. In the master suite, French doors open to frame an endless vista.
 

The six-bedroom home is designed with guests in mind: two bedrooms are configured as casitas with individual entrances. 
The separate pool house could also double as a sleeping quarters. There is a ten-car motor court along with a three-car garage that accesses the home via a porte-cochere. This is truly a home for the ages – one whose next era has just begun.
The residence at 426 North Barrington Avenue has been listed by Hugh Evans III at $16,995,000.
