Stunning Crestwood Hills Mid Century home, The Ray Osoling Residence, 1955. Nestled atop one of Brentwood‘s most desirable architectural neighborhoods, this mid-century post and beam home designed by R. K. Osoling offers expansive ocean and city views. Entry to the property is through an aesthetically pleasing Asian-style garden, complete with a colorful Japanese Maple, lush mondo grass and shoji screen details.

Designed and constructed by hand for his personal residence and office. Osoling himself was a mountaineer, which is apparent in the selection of the hillside site. The open-plan environment connects the living and dining rooms with the kitchen. Dramatic panoramic views are unobstructed by the functional selection of a see-through railing system on the wraparound deck. The steel-faced fireplace becomes a focal point secondary only to the view.

Welcome the day with morning coffee from the dining area surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass and the lush greenery of the canyon below, blurring the line between indoor and outdoor living. The open floor plan is ideal for entertaining, and the expansive windows maximize natural light.

The open updated kitchen maintains the original design intent while featuring top-of-the-line appliances. The space flows seamlessly to the dining area and living room, making entertaining a breeze.

The primary bedroom feels private and serene with walls of glass and an expansive balcony overlooking the pool and spa. An additional room works well as a den, office or guest room.
