Between 1950 and 1966, the architecture firm of Dan Palmer and William Krisel designed about 4,000 houses in the San Fernando Valley, including this mid-century modern located on a cul de sac in western North Hollywood. Per its listing, the 2,085-square-foot residence has been enlarged since being built in 1954; permitted additions "include an upstairs master suite and spacious dining room." Sited on a 7,478-square-foot lot, it features five bedrooms, three baths, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, clerestory windows, a stone fireplace, copper plumbing, drought-tolerant landscaping, and a not-so-drought-tolerant swimming pool. Last sold for $282,000 in 2002, it's now listed at the bidding-war-inciting price of $499,000.
