Don’t be surprised when a line forms to check out this Brentwood residence.
The 1930s Spanish-style estate was the longtime home of Bob Laverty, the late businessman who served as president of the Thriftimart and Smart & Final stores for about two decades. It’s now up for sale at $6.485 million.
Set on a third of an acre, the gated home brings to mind the Tuscan countryside with its sun-washed palettes, olive trees and indoor-outdoor living spaces. A mix of stone, wood and iron materials add to the relaxed vibe.
The 4,260 square feet of interior space includes a formal entry, a garden-view dining room, an updated kitchen and a den. Thick beams run across the slightly pitched ceiling in the living room, which has a tiled fireplace. There are four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
Covered and uncovered patio space extends the living area outdoors. A swimming pool, lawn and privacy hedges fill the backyard.
The property previously sold about a decade ago for $3.5 million, real estate records show.
Justin Alexander and Mick Partridge of Hilton & Hyland hold the listing.
