Million Dollar Monday: La Jolla Crest Palmer & Krisel For Sale – San Diego, CA

Built in 1962 by the Drogin Construction Company is this Palmer & Krisel-designed home in La Jolla Crest, San Diego, CA. This expanded home includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,300 square feet, sits on a 10,000 square-foot lot with an in-ground pool and includes a large roof deck with Mission Bay views and carries an asking price of $1,450,000.

The front of the home still retains its original midcentury lines and proportions, but has been resurfaced with a smooth plaster-like finish. Entry is gained through a recessed central courtyard with double doors. Raised planters filled with well-kept plantings separate the front yard from the adjacent roadway, and conceal a small patch of turf.

Inside, the living and dining rooms sit along the north side of the home, the kitchen lies at the center, and the bedrooms are sited along the south side of the home.

Clean concrete floors line the home, giving it a light, contemporary feel.

The kitchen sits long and linear at the center of the home, with clean, updated white cabinetry, grey composite counters and stainless steel appliances.
