This four-bedroom home, constructed in 1954 by wildly prolific modern architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel, is located in the Corbin Palms tract of Woodland Hills. The area was developed by Palmer and Krisel in conjunction with the Alexander Construction Company in the mid-1950s and now stands as a somewhat-under-the-radar enclave of classic midcentury modern architecture.
As the listing description suggests, this 1,619-square-foot home includes many of the signature features of Palmer and Krisel’s San Fernando Valley homes, like beamed ceilings, wide glass windows, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. There are also a few more unusual features, like Spanish tile floors, clerestory windows, and ornate tile-rimmed fireplace. The 7,512-square-foot lot includes a large, covered patio and yard complete with a decorative stone fountain. Interestingly, there’s no pool or hot tub—normally an almost obligatory feature of midcentury tract homes like this one. Oh well. You’ll certainly save on your water bill. Asking price is $599,000.
