Built in 1953 by the Devon Construction Company is this midcentury Palmer & Krisel-designed home in the Parkwood Covina neighborhood in West Covina, CA. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,338 expanded square feet and a two-car garage on a 7,000 square-foot lot with an asking price of $498,000.
There are not many pictures of this early Palmer & Krisel tract home, just one of the front, one of the back and two inside. The exterior of this south-facing home features a lush, green lawn and a large mature shade tree occupying the center of the yard. The exterior of the home has been modified with stone accents, the original clerestory windows appear to still be intact, and mature green shrubs line the entryway into the home.
There are only two photos inside, one of the kitchen and one of the entry. That’s it. We can tell that the kitchen has been updated with granite countertops, raised panel cabinetry, and mosaic tile backsplashes. Other than that, we know the home has been expanded towards the rear of the property, and the former detached garage has been attached to the home.
The backyard is mainly occupied by the addition, but includes a small trellised patio and a small grassy area. The price certainly seems decent for the neighborhood, hopefully the lack of pictures doesn’t mean that there are lots of surprises in this property.
