1954 Palmer & Krisel in Louise Manor For Sale – Van Nuys, CA

Built by M.J. Bristol in 1954, Louise Manor consists of approximately 40 Palmer & Krisel-designed midcentury modern tract homes about one mile west of the Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. This particular 1954 home features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a two car garage and an in-ground pool all on a 6,500 square-foot lot with an asking price of $450,000.

Driveway has removable bollards; reason unknown

The façade of the home is pretty unique, combining a flat roof over the garage with the gable end roofline of the home, similar to other Louise Manor homes and one of only a few positioned lengthwise on its lot. Adjacent to the garage is a great stone accent wall which matches the stonework surrounding the fireplace in the living room. Sited on a deep grassy lot, the entryway of the home sits at the middle of the property at the side. 

Living Room features wood floor and a fantastic stone fireplace surround

The living, kitchen and dining areas are all at the rear of the home, while the four bedrooms are sited at the front of the home. The living room is anchored by a large rock fireplace and still features its original open, beamed ceilings. The dining room and kitchen sit at the rear end of the home, and still feature their original north-facing clerestory windows.

Galley kitchen still features original clerestories
Bathrooms have been updated 

The kitchen has been updated with newer, big box-store type materials, including granite counters, raised-panel cabinets, granite countertops and ceramic tile floors. Both bathrooms have also been updated in a similar style, and while unremarkable, they are clean, functional and move-in ready.

Backyard features large, in-ground pool

The 6,500 square-foot lot is one of the deepest in the neighborhood

The listing agent didn’t include any photographs of the bedrooms, so we have no idea what’s going in in them. The backyard is an entertainer’s paradise, with a huge in-ground pool, lots of patio space and plenty of greenery on what is one of the deepest lots in the neighborhood.

With only 40 Palmer & Krisel homes in the Louise Manor tract these don’t come on that market that frequently, so if you’re looking for a midcentury modern home in Van Nuys, this is a great opportunity.
