New to the market is this Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Corbin Palms in Woodland Hills, CA. Built by the Alexander Construction Company in 1954, this home features three bedrooms and two and half baths in 1,619 square feet on a 7,500 square-foot lot with an asking price of $599,000.
Situated on an east-facing lot, the home sits behind a sweeping driveway and green lawn, and maintains its original lines. A dense planting of mature shrubbery sits adjacent to the two-car garage, long since converted from a two-car carport, and brick veneer has been added to the lower façade of the home. The original clerestories are still in place, and a traditionally-styled frond door leads visitors into the home.
|Living, dining and kitchen|
Inside, the home has had a traditional-meets southwest makeover, with Saltillo floors, mullioned windows and sliders and ornate chandeliers. The home was originally built with four bedrooms, but the demising wall between one of the bedrooms and living room has been removed, creating a formal dining room space. Additionally, the demising wall between the kitchen, breakfast nook, and living room has been removed, creating an open living space.

|Kitchen and entry|
The modernist fireplace in the living room has been traditionalized, but the original open-beamed celotex ceiling tiles still remain in place. The kitchen, like the rest of the home, has seen a newer traditional makeover, with granite counters, raised-panel cabinetry and stainless steel appliances.
The master bedroom sits at the rear corner of the home, and features an en-suite bathroom that appears to date from the late 1980s, with black cabinetry, sun window and glass countered sink. The secondary bedrooms sit on the north side of the home, and a small bonus room/den addition sits off the rear corner bedroom.
|Covered patio off of living room|
|Fountain and backyard|
|Patio at west side of yard|
A large covered patio with Saltillo flooring sits off the living room on the south side of the home, allowing for ample outdoor entertaining space. A raised deck sits along the south side of the yard, partially covered with a trellis. The remainder of the yard is turf, with a small water feature located adjacent to the end of the deck. At the western end of the backyard stands a large mature shade tree, offering shade to an additional private patio tucked at the rear of the home.
While the home has been taken away from its modernist roots over the years, it appears to have been well-cared for over the years and is in move-in ready condition. It’s a great opportunity to restore over time, or renovate prior to move-in.
