Built in 1960 is this renovated 1,776 square-foot Palmer
& Krisel designed home in San Diego’s Pacifica neighborhood. With bay views
from the front yard, this home includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a two car
garage and an in-ground spa all on a 12,500 square-foot lot with an asking
price of $1,250,000.

|Front yard features Mission Bay views|
The elevated lot contains a large front yard with a gated
entrance and wrought iron view fence. Behind the view fence sits a large front
yard patio, an elevated in-ground spa and two small grassy areas. Unobstructed
views of nearby Mission Bay can be seen from the front yard area.

|Front of home contains an outdoor kitchen with flat-panel television|
The front of the home has been altered to now contain a
large sliding panel glass door, allowing for the entire front to be opened up.
The traditional front door entrance is still in place adjacent to the panel
slider. Adjacent to the front doors sits an outside kitchen, replete with flat
screen television, beckoning those who love the mild San Diego climate outdoors
to entertain and relax.

|Kitchen, living and dining are all one room now, with a large chunky beam carrying the HVAC ducting|
The stained concrete patio carries through the inside of the
home, into the great room comprised of the kitchen, living and dining. All
walls between these rooms have been obliterated, which maximizes the front yard
views at the expense of interior privacy. As a result, now all the air ducting
sits inside of a thick, heavy beam running through the center of the room. The
fireplace sits on the western wall of the living room, and has been updated and
revised from its original modernist stylings.
|Kitchen has been updated with traditional cabinetry, granite counters and stainless steel appliances|
The kitchen has been updated with traditional dark cabinetry
topped with crown molding, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The
kitchen sits at the rear of the home and contains a small window overlooking the
Both the master bath and guest bath have been remodeled and
updated over time, in traditional manners. The master bathroom features both a
whirlpool tub and a stall shower, marble counters and marble tiles in the
shower and tub surround. The guest bath features a slate-tiled shower, stone
counters and a skylight helping to illuminate the space.
The master bedroom features a small bay window allowing for
a few additional square feet, and it and the rest of the bedrooms feature their
original, open beamed vaulted ceilings. The backyard is mainly un-landscaped,
sited on a steep slope. At the top of the slope is a view deck, visible in the front yard pictures, offering an
additional outdoor space in which to enjoy Mission Bay views.
This is a great property for entertaining, and while it has
been taken away form it’s modernist roots, the home has great bones, great
lines and an even better view.
