The homes tend to be traditional brick homes, many are small post-war 2 bedrooms homes, while others have smaller 2 story floor plans. Very few homes have been built in Brentwood in the last 20 years, resulting in higher prices for the few newer homes or rehabbed homes which offer modern floor plan features.
