Home of the Week: Going Danish in Brentwood

This Danish farmhouse-style home, which takes its cues from Denmark’s traditional architecture, sits among the trees on nearly two-thirds of an acre in Brentwood. A striking copper roof and whitewashed brickwork bring a pastoral tone to the exterior, as do the butcher-block-topped islands and four brick fireplaces inside.
