Built in 1955 by Dunas, Greene & Swidler is this nearly
all original 1955 Palmer & Krisel-designed home relatively new to the
market. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,296 square feet, an in-ground
pool on an 8,600 square-foot lot the asking price on this well-worn mid-mod
home is $429,000.
|Carport and entry|
With one owner over the last forty years, there’s a bit of
deferred maintenance on this property making it ripe for a restoration or
renovation. The home sits far from the front property line, with a patchy front lawn and small mature trees sited
in front of the home. A decaying U-shaped asphalt driveway leads to the
original front porte cochere-style carport.
This particular four-bedroom floorplan was one that Krisel repeated
in many other subdivisions, with the living and dining rooms at the rear of the
home, the kitchen on the north side, and all four bedrooms on the south side of
the home, two at the front and two at the rear.
|Living and dining rooms|
The rear-facing living room is anchored by its original stacked
brick fireplace, unaltered over the years with its original intended design
still intact. Original east-facing French doors and four-pane windows overlook
the backyard and pool area, but are covered in the listing photo provided. The
diminutive dining room is tucked to the side of the living area, but still
contains its original clerestory windows allowing lots of natural light to
enter the space.
|Kitchen and laundry|
The adjacent kitchen is all well-worn original, with vintage
large saucer pulls on all lower cabinet fronts and sliding upper cabinet doors.
The laundry sits adjacent to the kitchen,
and features a secondary door to the front driveway.

The photos provided of the bedrooms and baths indicate more
worn living areas, with walls in need of paint and a bath in need of a refreshing.
The backyard is centered around a modest-sized in-ground pool, with lots of hardscape
and patio area surround the pool. The backyard landscape is pretty much on par
with the front, with a large mature tree surrounded by overgrown planter areas.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a pool home ripe for restoration
in the classic modern neighborhood of Bermuda Woods.
