Nicely Renovated Santa Ana Palmer & Krisel For Sale – Santa Ana, CA

Sited in central Santa Ana is this well-renovated 1955 Palmer & Krisel-designed corner-lot home which has recently hit the market. With a small, proportional addition this home has been expanded from an original 1,200 square feet to 1,392 square feet, includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a detached two car garage and an in-ground pool and spa with an asking price of $485,000.

Front of home

Detached garage and front yard
The Santa Ana Palmer & Krisel-designed homes are the same models as found in Pomona’s Valwood Estates, built at nearly the same time in 1955. This particular home is one of the most well-thought out renovations we have seen so far of either the Santa Ana or Pomona Krisel homes. The front yard is surrounded with a combination slump block and horizontal wood fence, enclosing a mainly grassy yard area. The exterior of the home maintains its original lines, with the exception of the proportional addition, which was molded in the style of the home.

Living and kitchen

Inside, the living room sits at the rear of the home, while the kitchen and dining sit at the side. The open, beamed celotex ceilings are still intact and in place, have naturally-stained beams and are complimented by matching stained hardwood floors. The original cut stone fireplace is still intact in the living room, and appears to be in great condition.



Dining and addition viewed from kitchen

The kitchen has been opened to the living and dining rooms, and features sharp, semi-gloss grey cabinetry with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The original clerestories on the ends of the home are still intact, allowing for lots of natural light to flow into the kitchen and living areas. The dining area sits towards the front of the home, and opens to both the kitchen and the addition which is currently utilized as an office.

The addition maintains the same proportions of the home, including the open beamed celotex ceiling matching the rest of the home and floor-to-ceiling windows. The three bedrooms are generally in their original configurations, with the bedrooms on the ends of the home maintaining their original clerestories and all featuring their original vaulted ceilings.

Both bathrooms have been updated with clean, modern fixtures and details. The tub and shower surrounds use an attractive geometric patterned tile surround, while the walls of the bathrooms are finished in high-gloss white tile.

Rear patio


Pool and spa

The backyard contains a covered concrete patio accessed off of the living room. The large pool and spa occupy a majority of the rear yard, and the pool includes a diving board and water slide. The rest of the yard is mainly hardscaped, with the exception of some small planters at the corners of the yard.
This is very well-done contemporary renovation of a classic Palmer & Krisel home that is livable, attractive and appropriate.
