Do you have any additional photos? What is the interior layout like?
I'm leaning loosely towards International Style, it has some of the hallmarks like the long continuous low roof line, the white brick, and use of brick/concrete as a "feature" however I think it's suffering a little bit of an identity crisis.
Was it originally a duplex by any chance? Is the brick feature work in the middle an entry porch?

It looks like you have some lovely mature trees, definitely retain those. However, the house seems to "jump out" from the surroundings, I would be doing more to blend it in. I'd plant a couple of trees in front of the house, but keep them off centre and avoid symmetry so that it doesn't look too formal. Silver birch (depending on your location) would be lovely, slimline with delicate foliage and beautiful white trunks. Maples if you're somewhere cold enough for the foliage to change colour in autumn.
Or you could follow the "Palm Springs" style gardening that was popular with this style of home.
