Nestled in San Diego’s Pacifica neighborhood is this 1960
Palmer & Krisel-designed upwardly expanded home with sweeping city views.
Built by the Drogin Construction Company, this home includes four bedrooms and
three bathrooms in 2,290 square feet, a two car garage, in-ground pool with
above-ground spa, and a large open second floor addition with an asking price
|Front of home|
The exterior of the home generally retains its midcentury
modern Krisel lines, with vertical board and batten siding combined with a sand
stucco finish and natural stone veneered chimney. The second story addition at
the rear of the home is somewhat visible from the street, but unlike many
others we’ve seen, is not overpowering in design. A lush, mature water
conserving front yard compliments the home and welcomes visitors to the front
|Living and dining room|
The living room is positioned at the front of the home, and
has had its signature modernist fireplace preplaced with a curved, bee
hive-style façade. The dining room sits behind the living room, and overlooks
|Family room and kitchen|
Adjacent to the dining room are the kitchen and family room
at the rear of the property. The kitchen has been updated with granite countertops,
stainless steel appliances, a glass cooktop and rustic raised panel cabinetry.
The adjacent family room is opened to the kitchen and accesses the backyard and
hallway to the bedrooms.
The master bedroom sits at the rear of the home, and has had
a small traditional freestanding fireplace added to the rear wall. The master
bathroom has been updated with traditional materials, including natural stone,
raised panel cabinetry and vessel sinks. The three bedrooms sit along the north
side of the home, overlooking the side yard. The guest bath has been updated in
a similar style as the master.
|Stairway to second floor addition|
At the rear of the entryway lies the stairway leading up to
the second floor addition. The addition is a large entertaining/family room,
with room for a pool table, a built-in bar, a private bathroom and a stone
covered fireplace. Best of all, the addition features a large covered balcony
yielding sweeping views of the city.
|Backyard pool and spa|
|Backyard and pool|
The backyard is mainly paved surfaces, allowing for plenty
of patio and entertaining space surrounding the in-ground pool. The above
ground spa sits towards the deep end of the pool, and is accessed off of the
master bedroom. The south-facing side yard incorporates additional patio space,
paved with red bricks and colorful Spanish tiles.
