It’s inspiring when you encounter a home that makes you think the architect was reading your mind regarding the type of space you’d love to live in. This is one of those places. Modern, warm, functional, warm, airy, bright, fun. Yep, this 3 BR / 3.5 BA Brentwood home designed by award-winning architect Lorcan O’Herlily is a great blend of all those things.

 From the street, the home has an understated elegance highlighted by wood slats adorning the garage and entryway.

 The home is comprised of three distinct structural units – the garage, the public living areas and the private living areas. And in between these three components are outdoor areas that are equally important to the home’s overall aesthetic.

 The main living area, which includes the living room, dining room and kitchen, has an open flow and spaciousness to it that is perfect. What I particularly love is how the rooms’ separation is created by walls of beautiful cabinetry and shelving rat

 Stainless countertops and white cabinets with warm hardwood floors spread out over a wide open space, and sweet appliances, including a stove with an overhead spigot, make this one bitchin’ kitchen.

 The dining area is amply sized and, again, shows off the beautiful cabinetry that divides the living areas.

 The cool thing with the design of this home is the way in which the outdoor space is an integral element to living here. This courtyard, which is situated between the garage and the home’s main living space, is the perfect outdoor living room. Compl

This courtyard, which is situated between the garage and the home’s main living space, is the perfect outdoor living room. Complete with retracting overhead shades and a fireplace, you can create a comfy outdoor setting regardless of the season. And I love the huge, pivoting glass door that leads into the dining room.

 The home’s main living space is connected to its private spaces via this marvelous glass-walled bridge. Outside, on the other side of the glass walls, the courtyard is filled with lush foliage.

 Do I really need to describe this stairway? It’s just flat-out cool.

 In a design where there is a maximum use of glass, perhaps the most striking room is the master bedroom where the exposure to the surrounding greenery of eucalyptus trees creates an idyllic retreat.
