Parkwood La Mirada 1954 Palmer & Krisel Home For Sale – La Mirada, CA

For the second time this week there’s another Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Parkwood La Mirada for sale. Built by the Devon Construction Company, this expanded home includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,041 square feet and a two car garage on a 9,100 square-foot lot backing up to Neff Park with an asking price of $525,000.

The exterior of the home is relatively unchanged from its original appearance with the exception of an added gable roofline enclosing the service porch space between the home and formerly detached garage. Strong vertical board and batten lines are on the exterior of the garage while a white pvc fence encloses a small courtyard found off of the original master bedroom.

The living, and dining sit at the rear of the home with the kitchen at the front. The living room features Krisel’s signature walls of glass overlooking the backyard, while the wood-paneled fireplace with stacked stone accents anchors the end wall of the room. The dining room lies adjacent to the living area, separated with a vintage wooden room divider.  

Kitchen with original cabinetry

The kitchen is open to the separate dining room, and still retains all original unpainted cabinetry with original saucer pulls. The countertops have been updated with butcher-block laminate, while the appliances have been updated over time. Just beyond the kitchen lies the hallway and passageway to the laundry room addition and garage.

The original master bedroom lies at the front of the home, with its own bath and accesses the private front courtyard. The other two bedrooms lie split from the original master at the side of the home, and have had their original window configurations modified to taller, higher-sitting windows. The new master suite addition is accessed off of the dining room, and projects into the backyard area. The master suite features its own bath and access to the backyard.


A small concrete patio sits off of the living and dining rooms and accesses the master bedroom suite. The remainder of the backyard is open and grassy, with two large shad trees adding greenery to the space.
