Southern Living Idea House, Brenthaven

Brentwood, TN

Designed for the readers of Southern Living, this home takes its cues from the English cottage-style architecture of nearby historic neighborhoods. Encompassing 4,731 square feet, the house takes advantage of the sloping site to create a welcoming scale along the street. Interiors reflect timeless detailing and offer a gracious interchange from indoors to outdoors through a series of covered and screen porches. Natural light enters the home from multiple exposures.
