Midland Park Estates Palmer & Krisel For Sale – Fullerton, CA

Built in 1955 by Midland Properties is this Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Fullerton, CA relatively new to the market. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,253 square feet on a 9,000 square-foot corner lot, the asking price on this home is $600,000, a significant markup since it’s last sale in November 2015 for $491,000.

Only photos of the front of the home and the living area are shown, with no information provided on the bedrooms or baths. The home faces southeast on its corner lot, secluded from the roadway with a lush collection of mature trees, juniper groundcovers and flat green lawn giving the home a tranquil, serene setting. Like most Krisel-designed homes on corner lots, the garage is located in the backyard, accessing the adjacent side street, detached from the main home.

Inside, the home is a floorplan that was seen all over Southern California in the mid 1950’s. The kitchen sits on the west side of the home, with a dining room and guest bathroom lying at the front of the home between the kitchen and the entry. The dining room sits at the rear of the home along with the living room, and overlooks an enclosed addition in the backyard. All three bedrooms lie on the east side of the home, with the master at the front and secondary bedrooms at the rear.

Living room 

The living, dining and kitchen have all been opened to each other to create a great room concept, which opens up a typically small space, but also eliminates privacy within living areas and has the ability to make them feel smaller. The open beamed wooden ceilings are still in place, as are the clerestories at both ends of the home, which allow for the diminutive space to feel larger and more open.

The kitchen has been updated with newer, white shaker-style cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and composite counters. Dark planks line the floors, and modern light fixtures hang from the ceilings. The living room still maintains its original modernist Krisel fireplace, with clean lines and stacked block.

There’s no photos of the backyard, but the detached two-car garage and backyard sunporch swallow up much of the available space. Mature trees and vines surround the rest of the backyard, and a small patch of grass sits near the western corner.

This home looks interesting, quiet and calm from the street, and if you don’t mind the open concept it’s worth a look.
