Long & Linear North Reseda 1955 Palmer & Krisel For Sale – Reseda, CA

There’s a second midcentury modern Palmer & Krisel-designed home for sale in our ‘newly discovered’ North Reseda subdivision that we told you about yesterday. This particular home includes four bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,772 square feet and an in-ground pool all on a 6,000 square-foot lot with an asking price of $500,000.

There’s a tenant in this property making showings by appointment only, making this a great opportunity for buyers with a little patience. The home is laid out linearly on the lot, with the bedrooms at the front of the home and the living areas at the back. The original two-car garage sits towards the back of the lot and has been converted to the fourth bedroom/pool house.

Due to the positioning of the original garage, a long, linear driveway sits on the north side of the property. The gable end of the home faces the street, and features distinctive vertical wooden screens over the front windows, along with the signature clerestories. Large mature trees and shrubbery flank both sides of the lot and add shade and greenery to the property.

Dining room and living room

The front door sits at the middle of the home, accessed from the long driveway, and opens up into a small entry that opens to the living room featuring its original open, beamed vaulted ceilings. The living room features dramatic east-facing floor-to-ceiling windows and clerestories that overlook a covered patio leading to the backyard. These windows make a statement and add dramatic impact to the room. A sleek, long and low modernist fireplace hugs the northern living room wall.

The dining room sits open to the living room at the rear of the home, and access the kitchen which sits opposite the entry. No photographs have been provided of the kitchen, however from similar floorplans we’ve seen the laundry room sits adjacent to the kitchen galley.

The three original bedrooms (once four) all sits at the front of the home, however the master was originally two bedrooms converted into one large room. The two secondary bedrooms sits adjacent to the master, while the garage conversion is now considered the fourth bedroom. No photographs have been provided of the secondary bedrooms, bathrooms or garage conversion.

Small yard area and pool

A large screened covered patio has been added to the rear of the home and opens to the large in ground pool. The pool occupies most of the backyard, along with a small patio and decking area and a small planter. There’s only a few photos of this home, which could make it a great opportunity for those with a little patience to wait for the tenant to let them in.
