Corbin Palms Palmer & Krisel Home on Corbin Avenue For Sale – Woodland Hills, CA

Built in 1954 by the Alexander Construction Company is this four bedroom, two bathroom 1,392 square-foot Palmer & Krisel-designed home in iconic Corbin Palms in Woodland Hills, CA. Situated on a 7,500 square-foot lot with a detached two-car rear yard garage, the asking price on this home is $619,900.

Front of home
The home fronts wide, four lane Corbin Avenue and sits adjacent to the neighboring Disabled Veterans Banquet and Picnic Grounds. As the driveway and garage are located in the backyard, the front yard consists of a wide swath of grass with mature landscape. Stone veneer accents surround the front door, and a walled front patio sits to the south of the entryway.


Originally built as a four bedroom home, the original fourth bedroom which would have sat sandwiched between the entryway and kitchen has now been converted to a sitting area. The living and dining rooms sit at the rear of the home, and the three remaining bedrooms are clustered along the north side of the home.

Dining room 

The original modernist fireplace anchoring the living room has been de-modernized, with a flush façade and tile surround around the opening, replacing what would have been brick. Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors surround the fireplace. The dining area sits towards one corner of the living room, and opens towards the kitchen.


Kitchen - note added/shrunk fan light clerestories above cabinetry


The kitchen has long been updated with mid-1990s cabinetry, countertops and white appliances (except for the microwave). The north-facing clerestories which would have sat above the upper cabinetry have been mostly removed and replaced with fan light windows. The laundry room sits open and adjacent to the kitchen, along with a small breakfast nook.

The master bedroom and bathroom sit at the front of the home, while the secondary bedrooms sit at the rear of the home. All three bedrooms have seen their original open beamed vaulted ceilings covered with drywall, and both bathrooms have been updated over the years with newer fixtures, vanities and finishes.


Garage and backyard

Back of home

The backyard is meticulously maintained, with a lush, rolling green lawn, mature trees and bordering flower beds. A concrete patio sits between the detached garage and living & dining rooms, allowing for outdoor living. The original rear yard garage does occupy some of the usable space within the backyard, but the backyard is amply sized and provides a usable private space.

This home would be a great project for either a renovation or restoration. There isn’t much original left, but the makings of a fantastic showplace are already in place.
