Built in 1955 in Santa Ana, CA is this traditionally renovated Palmer & Krisel-designed home. Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,442 square feet on a 6,000 square-foot lot with an-ground pool, this central Santa Ana home carries an asking price of $549,900.
|Front of home|
Like most other homes on the street, this one features a front yard fence separating it from the surrounding street, with thick stucco pilasters and a wide driveway gate. Behind the fence and gate the front yard is mostly paved over, with a combination of concrete driveway and molded pavers. Red brick veneer has been added to various portions of the front of the home, and a Victorian-style front door with a large, leaded oval glass windows sets the tone for this home.
|Living, entry, dining and kitchen|
Inside, the Santa Ana Palmer & Krisel homes were cousins to the Pomona’s Valwood Estates models. The entry open up into the old world-inspired living room, with hefty interior columns supporting decorative arches where demising walls once stood. The dining area sits off the entryway, and features a large ceiling medallion supporting a new-olde style chandelier, while the once modernist fireplace in the living room has been converted to something reminiscent of centuries earlier.
The kitchen sits off the dining and living room at the side of the home, and has seen its demising walls removed. The kitchen is pretty much the antithesis of midcentury modern, with raised-panel cabinetry, granite-on-granite backsplashes and counters, ornate molding and leaded glass cabinet fronts. Stainless steel appliances, can lights and a garden window top off the look of the room.
|Bonus room addition|
The three bedrooms are definitely in keeping in line with the rest of the look of the home. All three bedrooms feature a distinct version of a coffered ceiling, ornate lighting fixture and plantation shutters. The bathrooms follow suit with the rest of the home, with ornate tilework and earth tones.
|Pool and backyard|
|Built in barbecue area|
|Bakcyard and pool|
|Back of home|
The backyard is anchored by the large in-ground pool bordered in red bricks. A variety of paving ranging from flagstone, concrete and dark stone lines the yard. Other than a few oversized pots, there’s no living landscape in the backyard, only hardscape. A small pergola sits along the north side of the yard, covering a built-in barbeque.
While this midcentury modern home is decidedly no longer midcentury modern, it represents an interesting interpretation of a modernist tract home – at least the vision remained consistent throughout the entire property.
