Cutoff valves inside a wall?

Why would there be cutoff valves sealed inside a wall. Closing the valves would result in the kitchen and 1 bathroom having water and the rest of the house not. Im trying to figure out whether I should remove the valves and close the wall or just install an access panel for it.

Could be that when the house was built, the owner needed water in those places but the plumbing to the other fixtures was not operable yet. Could have also been additional fixtures added after the originals. You can solve the problem either of the ways you mentioned. Good luck.
