Built in 1955 by Dunas, Greene & Swidler in the neighborhood of Bermuda Woods in Reseda, CA is this Palmer & Krisel-designed relatively new to the market. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,296 square feet and a detached rear-yard garage on a 7,700 square-foot lot, this home carries an asking price of $459,000.
|Front of home|
Interestingly, this is the same floorplan that popped up last week in Southeast Granada Hills, with the living and dining rooms at the rear of the home, the kitchen sited along the south side of the home, and the four bedrooms grouped on the north side of the home.
Out front, the home sits framed by two pollarded trees which is a highly questionable practice of pruning. The garage sits in the backyard behind the home, and is served by a long, linear asphalt driveway. The remainder of the front yard is turf, essentially creating the perfect blank canvass for a water-conserving makeover.

|Living and dining room|
The living and dining rooms overlook the backyard and an added sunporch through Krisel’s signature walls of glass. The stacked block modernist fireplace has recently been drywalled over and stone veneer and a traditional mantle has been added. Hopefully the original block is still underneath and can eventually be restored. The open beamed ceilings are still intact, and wood laminate floors line the home.
|Kitchen and breakfast nook|
The clerestory windows above the dining room and kitchen are still intact, allowing for natural light freely fill the home. The kitchen has been updated with simple, white shaker-style cabinets, corian counters and white appliances. A small breakfast nook sits at the front of the kitchen, and provides access to the adjacent sideyard.
|Den at front of home|
A small den sits off the entry and serves as the fourth bedroom, featuring walls of glass and French doors leading to the front yard. The master bedroom sits at the front corner of the home, however no photos have been provided. The remaining two secondary bedrooms sit at the rear of the home and overlook the backyard. Both bathrooms have received updating, and are clean, simple and functional.
|Sunroom at back of home|
|Backyard and back of home|
|Backyard and sunroom|
Some of the east-facing backyard's usable area is taken up by the original detached garage, and a small sunroom sits off the rear of the home. A small uncovered patio sits adjacent to the sunroom, and a combination of turf, gravel and miscellaneous plantings make up the rest of the yard.
