Built in 1960 by the Drogin Construction Company in the Del Cerro community of San Diego, CA is this 1960 Palmer & Krisel-designed Tierra Del Cerro home new to the market this week. Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,764 square feet, this home includes an attached two-car garage and sits on a 12,100 square-foot lot and includes a guest house all for an asking price of $599,000.
|Front of home|
Like most of the 47 homes in Del Cerro, this property fronts Interstate 8, which provides some front yard noise. The exterior of the home at some point has been covered in chunky lace stucco, and a cottage-style garage door and fan-light front door have been added to the exterior of the home. Original windows have been replaced with white vinyl substitutes, and the front yard maximizes water conservation.
|Living room and entry|
|Dining/sitting room and living room|
Inside, this particular model features a long and linear living room with Krisel’s signature modernist corner fireplace anchoring the space. The fireplace retains most of its original form, with the exception of slate tile accents added sometime over the last 15 years. The original dining room sits towards the rear of the home, overlooks the backyard, and is currently being used as a secondary sitting area/family room.
|Kitchen and breakfast nook|
The kitchen sits adjacent to the living room, separated by its original demising wall. The cabinetry appears to have been updated at some point in the late 1990s, with raised panel door fronts, while the countertops look to be more mid-2000s with their granite toppings. A skylight helps illuminate the kitchen, and a small breakfast nook/dining area sits in the corner of the room.
The master bedrooms sits at the rear of the home, overlooking the backyard through windows which replaced a once-present slider. The master bathroom has been updated over the years, with newer cabinetry, surround and counters. The two secondary bedrooms are located at the center and side of the home in their original configurations, with the front bedroom missing its original clerestories. The guest bath has been updated in the same style as the master, with updated surrounds, counters and fixtures.
The backyard contains the small detached casita, which features its own kitchen and bath. The yard backs up to a hillside, with most of the flat area consisting of a paved, trellis-covered patio, while the hillside area remains relatively unlandscaped.
This is a clean, move-in ready home that is ripe for a modernist makeover or restoration, so long as the new owner doesn’t mind a little freeway noise.
