Lucy, I’m home. This charming traditional, tucked behind a white picket fence in scenic Brentwood Park, has curb appeal reminiscent of television suburbia.

Once owned by Jess Oppenheimer, the late producer and head writer of beloved sitcom “I Love Lucy,” the East Coast-inspired two-story is reached by a brick walkway that leads across a sprawling lawn and ends at a formal entry. French doors and large picture windows make the most of the verdant setting, bringing garden views inside.
