It’s pretty rare that we get to see a midcentury modern home outside of Palm Springs that’s well kept, chocked full of great vintage features and still feels modern, but this is a great example of blending vintage with new.
Built in 1960 by the Drogin Construction Company, this Palmer & Krisel-designed home sits in the Point Loma Estates subdivision in San Diego, CA. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,662 square feet, a two car garage and a 9,700 square foot flat lot, the asking price on this home is a reasonable $675,000.
|Living room is anchored by signature modernist Krisel fireplace|
|Dining room overlooks back yard - check out that vintage pull-down light fixture|
The front of the home looks as fresh today as it did in 1960, with crisp white and brown exterior paint and towering palms welcoming guests. The recessed entry leads visitors into the long, linear living room with open beamed vaulted ceilings and signature modernist Krisel fireplace anchoring the room. The dining room sits at the rear corner of the home, overlooking the large, flat, grassy backyard. There’s also a great vintage pull-down light fixture anchoring the room, adding a great retro touch.
|Kitchen features original cabinets and updated appliances|
|Tile countertops and light fixtures are original|
|Kitchen features large storage pantry and floating cabinetry|
Tucked off of the dining room sits the original, vintage kitchen with updated stainless steel appliances and original unpainted cabinetry. The counters are the original tile, and the floating cabinet divider between the dining room and kitchen has also been in place since 1960.
|Master bathroom features original vanity and medicine cabient - check out the sliding doors on the vanity - great feature!|
The bathrooms are also vintage and original, with their original unpainted vanities, marble countertops and classic American Standard sinks. Original sliding medicine cabinets and wall heaters are also still intact, all in fantastic condition.
|Open beamed ceilings and clerestories are still in place in bedrooms|
|Backyard is large, flat and grassy|
The bedrooms all feature their original, unfinished open beamed ceilings, while the clerestories at the front bedroom are all still in place. The backyard is deep, flat and grassy, backing up to an adjacent multi-family property.
This is a fantastic midcentury home that appears to have been well-cared for, well-maintained and hasn’t had the character updated out of it.
