Built in 1954 by the Alexander Construction Company is this Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Corbin Palms in Woodland Hills, CA. With three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in 1,392 square feet situated on a 7,200 square-foot lot with pool and two-car detached garage, the asking price of this home is $598,000.
The home fronts busy four-lane Victory Boulevard, which provides a palm tree lined median separating traffic. The front of the property provides on-street parking, and the home is separated from Victory Boulevard by a large front lawn. The home maintains its original Krisel lines and proportions, with original glass clerestories sited above a smooth stucco façade.
A white Victorian-style front door leads visitors and guests into this midcentury modern home, whose long linear living room overlooks the east-facing side yard. Original parquet flooring is still intact throughout the home, and the living room is anchored by its original modernist fireplace, which has seen a pair of staggered mantles added to it.
|Half bath off entry with original clerestories|
|Family/dining and kitchen|
A small half bath sits off the entry hall, and the kitchen and dining/family room sits opposite the living room at the front of the home accessed through the entry hall. The kitchen has been last updated at some point in the 1990s, with white ceramic tiles floors, raised-panel cabinetry, white tile counter tops, a central island and newer appliances. The home was originally built as a four-bedroom, however as seen in other similar models, the fourth bedrooms has been annexed by the kitchen/family room as additional common area space.
The three bedrooms sit at the rear of the home, with two on the east and one on the west sides of the home. The bedrooms feature their original exposed celotex open beamed ceilings, original window configurations letting in lots of natural light, and original parquet flooring. The bathrooms appear to have been updated recently, and feature beige floor tiles on the shower surrounds and ornate finishes.
|Backyard, pool and back of home|
A small sunporch sits off the living room, accessing the backyard which is taken up with a large in-ground diving pool. A small patch of turf sits between the sunporch and the pool, and contrary to most pool design the pool’s deep end sits adjacent to the home while the shallow end is located at the furthers point way from the home. The detached two-car garage occupies the remainder of the backyard and is accessed via an alleyway.
The home is move-in ready offers great potential to enjoy as-is or slowly restore or renovate over the years. Either way, it’s a great example of Palmer & Krisel midcentury modern at its best.
