1955 Palm Gables Palmer & Krisel Home For Sale – Granada Hills, CA

Built in northeast Granada Hills in 1955 by Murray Strauss & Associates is this small and efficient midcentury Palmer & Krisel-designed home. Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,117 square feet and a detached two-car garage on a 7,700 square-foot, this home carries an asking price of $480,000.

Front of garage

Entry with Victorian door

The exterior of this north-facing home features a relatively recently installed low-water using front yard, consisting of new, small plantings and freshly laid mulch. The detached garage features its original clapboard siding and distinct clerestories, while the front door has been replaced with a Victorian-styled door and the windows have been swapped out for mullioned white-vinyl replacements.

Living room 

Dining and living room 

Inside, the living and dining rooms sit towards the rear of the home, while the kitchen lays at the front while all three bedrooms are grouped along the west side of the home. The living room provides a view to the large grassy backyard through mullioned window panes. Missing is the signature modernist fireplace, as this home was one of a handful throughout the neighborhood that was built without one. The ceilings have been drywalled over and can lighting added, while dark laminate floors line the room.



The galley kitchen sits towards the front of the home, and features newer raised panel cabinetry, granite counters and mosaic tile backsplashes. A mix of black and white appliances fill the room, and a vintage ranch-house style door provides access to the service porch and garage beyond.

All three bedrooms are in their original configurations, and are small and efficient. The master sits at the front of the home while the secondary bedrooms sit at the rear. Both bathrooms have been updated with clean and simple materials indicative of a big box store renovation.

Backyard and back of home

Patio and play area


The backyard is large, open and grassy, with a small vegetable garden and thick perimeter plantings. A covered patio sits off the living room along with a small concrete patio, while a sandy play area sits adjacent to the patio.

This small modernist home offers an efficient floorplan and plenty of opportunity to enjoy as-is or restore back to its modernist roots. Either way, it’s predicted by to be a hot seller, so be sure to see this one before it goes.
