In the fall of 1988, while searching for a new home, James Ehrenclou and his wife, Martine, happened upon the small hillside community of Crestwood Hills nestled at the top of Brentwood's Kenter Canyon. Drawn by its landscape and sheltering environment, the Ehrenclous knew their search was over.

BERLIN NELSON, 5, and her brother, Bradford, 4, sit on the concrete patio drawing a fish with pink chalk as their dog watches. Their 10-month-old sister, Charlotte, crawls over to a nearby swivel chair, stands and holds on as she gleefully begins walking in circles. Their play is the picture of a simpler time, much like the 1950 house that their parents, Brian and Tess Nelson, fell in love with at first sight. Tucked into the Crestwood Hills enclave in Brentwood, their home, designed by A.

Greg Marusak likes contemporary architecture with its loft-like spaces, natural light, open floor plans and use of concrete, steel and glass. It's no wonder then that the psychiatrist owns the GE2 House, which has all those things and then some. It's in Crestwood Hills, a prestigious neighborhood in the hills of Brentwood. GE2 may sound like a robot from the future, but the name incorporates the initials of the original owners and architects, two Gregs and two Erics.

The heart of Crestwood Hills, a woodsy enclave in the hills above Sunset Boulevard on Los Angeles' Westside, is a cooperative nursery school where parents are required to volunteer twice a month to help their children learn about silkworms, build sandcastles and touch the sky on a swing.

Cory Buckner loves her neighborhood: The airy 1950s-era homes tucked carefully on the hills above Brentwood, the quiet tangle of trees carpeting the hillside, and the unobtrusive backyards hidden away from neighbors' view. Preserving the original design of the Crestwood Hills community is so important to Buckner and four of her neighbors that they want their homes designated historic monuments.

I read with deep sadness of the passing of Edgardo Contini, FAIA. Edgardo was a towering presence in the Los Angeles design community whose pioneering efforts in residential land planning and design in the 1950s and 1960s created the innovative Crestwood Hills tract in Brentwood and residential prototypes as a part of the famous Case Study Houses program. His humane design principals touched thousands of lives. Edgardo was a valued friend and adviser to Architects/Designers/ Planners for Social Responsibility, this nation's largest pro-active group of designers (2,500 members)

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy will receive 27.3 acres of open space from the J. Paul Getty Trust on Wednesday. The dedication ceremony will be at 2:30 p.m. at the Crestwood Hills Park Clubhouse, 1000 Hanley Ave., Brentwood. The land grant was made possible by Crestwood Hills Assn., which bought the land, a wooded parcel in Kenter Canyon, from the Getty Trust and donated it to the conservancy for preservation and public recreational use.

ThankS for the article ["The Simple, Modern Life" Oct. 5] about the Crestwood Hills. My family was one of the original members of the Mutual Housing Assn., and ours was the 21st house completed in 1951, after three long years of contractor bankruptcies and labor problems. The model in the article was the same as ours, which is a California historic landmark listed as the Kalmick House on Rochedale Lane. It was a great place to grow up, and the area has the same charm it did in the '50s.
