Park 7 Palmer & Krisel For Sale – Westminster, CA

Built in 1955-56 by the Parkside Development Company, the Park 7 housing tract in in Westminster, CA features approximately 140modest-sized modernist midcentury Palmer & Krisel-designed homes. This features 1956 Palmer & Krisel-designed home includes five bedrooms and three bathrooms in 1,600 square feet with a two car garage all on an 8,700 square-foot lot with an asking price of $569,900.

Detached garage
Situated on a quiet seven-home cul-de-sac, this home has recently undergone some recent updates. The original single-panel board and batten garage door was still intact as of last year, but has recently been swapped out for a new, aluminum panel door. The original windows have also been swapped out for white vinyl replacements, while the front yard is pretty much a blank slate, ready for a water-conserving modernist makeover.


Living and sunroom

The living, kitchen and dining all sit at the rear of the home while the bedrooms all side along the north-facing front. The small hardwood floored foyer leads into the living room, which is anchored by the signature modernist fireplace, augmented by clerestories. A large glass slider and two floor-to-ceiling windows peer into the sunroom tacked onto the back of the home.



Doorways to secondary bedrooms and laundry area
The kitchen has been completely updated with white, shaker-style cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is open to the adjacent and un-pictured dining/family room, which also includes the original laundry area.

The original two rear secondary bedrooms are jack-and-jill, with a common shared bathroom between the two of them. The bathrooms have also been retrofitted to match the kitchen in appearance with shaker vanities and granite counters. There are two more un-pictured bedrooms and a third bathroom in an approximate 300 square-foot addition on the west side of the home. The reason for the lack of imagery is unknown, but the home appears to be partially under refurbishment and perhaps those rooms weren’t ready for showing.

There aren’t any photos of the south-facing backyard shown, but aerial photographs indicate that the sun room covers most of the back of the home; the yard is mainly un-landscaped with the exception of a few large trees, and that there’s plenty of room in this wide, pie-shaped lot.

Those with a keen eye will recognize this efficient floorplan as one we’ve seen before in El Paso, Tucson, Lompoc, Las Vegas, Henderson, Hanford and now Westminster. It’s a great plan, and if you’re looking for a piece of midcentury modern in Orange County, be sure to check out this home loaded with potential.
