Known as the Kearsarge Residence, this Brentwood home by Romanian architect Haralamb Georgescu is distinguished by open space, clean lines and an overall form that is both simple and utilitarian. A two-story living room, with a back-lighted hearth and walls of glass, acts as the focal point of the free-flowing modernist home, built in 1969. Adjacent to the main house, set among a private garden, is a secondary pavilion framed in glass.
