Allied Gardens Palmer & Krisel Pool Home For Sale – Hacienda Heights, CA

Brand new to the market is this 1955 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Allied Gardens in Hacienda Heights, CA. With three bedrooms and two baths in 1,200 square feet, this home includes a detached garage and an in-ground pool all on a 6,100 square-foot lot and carries an asking price of $480,000.

Front of home

Corner side of home

The front of the north-facing home features huge mature pine trees, set in a front lawn which has recently become another drought victim. The home sits on a corner lot, with the detached garage sited in the backyard of the home accessed from the corner side of the home. The home generally retains original features out front, with original four-pane front windows most noticeably modified with air conditioner retrofits.  

Living room 

Dining room 

Inside the home, the living and dining rooms sit at the rear of the home, overlooking the backyard. The living room features a modified flush fireplace with east-facing clerestories above. The original floor-to-ceiling windows in the living and dining room have been shortened and replaced with small, square white vinyl retrofits, which cut down on the amount of natural light entering the south-facing room.

Kitchen with original cabinets and sink


Laundry sits open to kitchen 

Original floating island between kitchen and dining

The kitchen sits at the front of the home open and adjacent to the dining room. Most of the cabinetry is original, along with tile countertops, sink, faucet and floating island. All appears to be fairly well-preserved after 61 years of use.

Master bath with original vanity and medicine cabinet

The master bedroom sits off the entry at the front of the home, and shares a jack-and-jill bathroom with the entry hall. The master bedroom still includes its original clerestories, while the master bath still maintains its original marble vanity and medicine cabinet. The secondary bedrooms sit on the west side of the home, along with the guest bath, adjacent to the kitchen and dining rooms. The guest bath has been updated with newer fixtures and vanities, indicative of a big-box store renovation.

Back of home

Patio, fire pit and pool

Pool and fire pit

The backyard is relatively small in size, with the swimming pool occupying most of the yard. A severely cracked patio surrounds the pool, with a rough-appearing fire pit sited between the back of home and pool.  The detached two-car garage occupies the rest of the backyard, which backs up to adjacent Haliburton Road.

This midcentury home just needs an infusion of modernism, with creative solutions to both the front and rear yards, and lack of central air needing to be solved.
