Renovated 1960 College Glen Estates Palmer & Krisel For Sale – San Diego, CA

Here’s a contrasting property to yesterday’s original 1959 Palmer & Krisel in College Glen Estates. This Palmer & Krisel was built by the Drogin Construction Company in 1960 and features four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage in 1,492 square feet on a 6,300 square-foot lot with an asking price of $545,000.

This home is in move-in ready condition. The façade of the home features original clerestories both at the front bedroom and above the garage; other windows have been replaced with white vinyl, and the double-hung window on the front of the home replaces what would have been a more signature (and stylistically better) four-pane window. The front door and sidelights are opaque glass, and offers  a spot of color. Sleek address numbers and light fixtures help set the modern tone for this home.

The interior features travertine flooring throughout, and has even replaced the signature Krisel fireplace massing. The interior walls are painted a warm grey, and are complimented with white and brown open beamed ceilings. As with many Krisels, the living area provides views to the backyard, and the kitchen is tucked off the entry and dining area. The kitchen has been sleekly remodeled, utilizing the most current trends in cabinetry and counters. The lower cabinets are white while the uppers are euro-style wood grain, with grey composite counters. The look is a little top-heavy, but definitely on trend.

The bedrooms all show clean, open and bright, and the bathrooms have been renovated in a style that compliments the updates throughout the home.  Once again the ever-popular Ikea Godmorgon bathroom vanities are featured in the bathrooms, like we’ve seen countless other updated Krisels.

The backyard is fairly shallow, as it backs up to a hillside, and offers a small patio and turf area. We only spotted one tree on this property, and that’s in the front yard, meaning there’s ample opportunity to add in some greenery.

If you’re looking for a clean and crisp move-in ready Krisel in San Diego, look no further than this home. It shows like a model, and would only need a few minor restorative tweaks to make it that perfect showplace.
