Built in 1954 in north Winnetka, CA in the San Fernando Valley is this classic Palmer and Krisel-designed modernist house. Measuring in at 1,406 square feet, this home incorporates three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a two-car carport and an in-ground pool and spa on a 7,100 square-foot lot and carries an asking price of $495,000.
|Front yard view from entry|
The exterior of this home maintains its original modernist integrity, with all proportions still intact. The carport carries a striking reverse-angle roofline, with angled vertical siding adding texture and shadow lines to the façade. This pattern is repeated on the front exterior of the service porch fence, adjacent to the kitchen.
|Dining room view|
|Colorful front door|
Inside, the kitchen sits at the front of the home while the living and dining rooms sit towards the rear. While there are no bedroom pictures provided, this floorplan typically accommodates a split master bedroom, nestled between the entry and the living room, and one rear and one front-facing secondary bedroom located behind the kitchen and dining room.
The kitchen appears to contain its original cabinet boxes with long-ago updated raised panel doors and traditional pulls. Appliances are somewhat vintage in their own right, and counters appear to have been replaced over time as well. A partial photo looking out the dining room windows to the backyard is shown, indicating that original floor-to-ceiling windows have been shortened slightly and replaced with vinyl substitutes, making restoration an easy possibility.
|Original guest bath|
One photo of only one bathrooms is shown, which shows off the original features and tilework. The floating vanity with dual American Standard Pullmans is still in place, as is the soft yellow tub with matching tiled surround.
|Pool and backyard|
|Terrible pool photo|
The backyard is ripe for entertaining, with a large in-ground pool and spa at the center of the space. A covered patio runs along the backside of the home, and generous amounts of patio space surrounds the pool. Planters with mature plantings surround the perimeter of the yard, and a small gazeebo sits on the north side of the yard.
With original lines, lots of great features still intact, an in-ground pool and an asking price under $500,000, this home is predicted by Redfin.com to be a swift sell.
