Well-Worn Palmer & Krisel For Sale in Valwood Estates – Pomona, CA

There’s another well-worn Palmer & Krisel home for sale in Pomona’s Valwood Estates neighborhood. This particular home is 1,200 square feet Valwood Estates Model F4, built in 1955 featuring three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a detached two-car garage on a 5,900 square-foot lot, with an asking price of $330,000.

The front exterior has been freshly painted, and unlike many Valwood Estates homes there’s no wall or fence enclosing the front yard. The floor to ceiling master bedroom windows out front have been recently replaced with mullioned white vinyl windows that no longer extend the full height of the wall. Most likely a quick and inexpensive solution for window replacement.

Inside, the home is a busy mix of colors, wall textures, tile and crown molding. The interior appears to retain the original layout, with the exception of the conversion of the fourth bedroom to a dining room at the front of the house. The original living room and kitchen are at the back of the home. The signature walls of glass have been replaced with French doors, and the fireplace appears to have been well-used over the years.

The open-beamed vaulted ceilings are still intact, as are the clerestories at the sides of the home. There’s not much original left, with the exception of some of the closet doors and a pantry next to the refrigerator. The remainder of the kitchen appears to have been updated with oak cabinetry and basic appliances.

The backyard is a blank slate, with a myriad of fencing types, and houses the original garage which appears to have suffered from some deferred maintenance. The listing states that there’s lots of potential with this home, and that’s true. We know how great Palmer & Krisels shine when restored, and this one is definitely a great candidate to be brought back to life. The listing agent didn't put much effort into the photographs, and there's plenty of blurry and odd detail shots to look out.
