There’s a lot of activity in San Diego’s Pacifica neighborhood
right now, with this 2,414 square-foot Palmer & Krisel-designed midcentury
modern home being one of four in the neighborhood actively on the market.
Expanded, this 1962 home now includes four bedrooms and four bathrooms with a
two-car garage on a 10,000 square-foot lot with an asking price of $1,495,900.
|Entryway with stacked stone veneer|
Situated on a view lot, the home has undergone extensive
renovations back in 2008. The front of the home no longer incorporates its original
clerestories or decorative blockwork, instead it features a smooth stucco
finish. A rock veneer has been added to the base of the home, which throws off
the original proportions of the façade.
|Living Room Kitchen blends together|
This home features a wide entry hallway that opens up into
the living room. The living room has been opened up to the kitchen, which in
turn opens to the dining room. This open concept allows for the backyard views
to maximized but leads to a lack of privacy and a loss of spatial delineation.
The living room is anchored by the signature Krisel modernist corner fireplace;
however a mantle has been added which alters the dramatic form significantly.
|Updated cabinetry reads dark and heavy|

|Dining Room features some of the best views in the home|
The kitchen features all updated traditional cabinetry with
granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The dining area features some
of the best views in the house, with wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows and
access to the backyard patio. Luckily the clerestories have been left on this
side of the home which help lengthen and dramatize the sweeping views.
The original bedrooms generally retain their original
configurations, minus their original clerestories. The bathrooms have all been
updated with quality materials, and while nice, they don’t necessarily embody
the midcentury modern spirit of the home.
|Pool is surrounded by terraced yard|
|Backyard features sweeping city views|
The backyard incorporates an in-ground swimming pool surrounded
by the terraced yard. There’s lot of covered and uncovered patio space, perfect
for enjoying the mild San Diego climate.
Compared to yesterday’s
, this one seems like a bargain. And if you’re looking for the
perfect midcentury Pacifica home to restore, the one next
is for sale.
