Here’s a rare offering: one of 54 San Fernando Valley homes designed by modern architects Dan Palmer and William Krisel for developer Sanford D. Adler between 1958 and 1959. Originally called the Living-Conditioned Homes, the community, located on the border of Northridge and Granada Hills, is filled with ranch style houses with sloping rooflines and walls of glass.
This particular home is no exception, and appears to have been kept in very good shape over the years. It features an open floor plan accentuated by sliding doors and clerestory windows, along with a vaulted ceiling above the living area.
The 1,568-square-foot house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with a compact kitchen with tile countertops and a living room centered around a fireplace and built-in bench.
The home sits on a quarter-acre lot and is fronted by a neatly landscaped garden and a two-car garage. Behind the house is a concrete patio and an enclosed backyard filled with mature trees, outdoor seating space, and gardens.
The home last sold for just $18,500 in 1976. It’s now back on the market seeking $627,000.
