Placentia Palmer & Krisel For Sale – Placentia, CA

Up for grabs is this midcentury modern 1955 Palmer & Krisel-designed home in Placentia, CA that’s been on the market for a few weeks now. Built with four bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,372 expanded square feet, this home includes a two-car garage and sits on a 7,000 square-foot lot and carries an asking price of $485,000.

Entry & garage - garage door appears to be original 

A red brick-lined driveway sweeps across the front lawn to the two-car garage and entryway, while the base of the home is lined with shrubs and various plantings. All the windows have been retrofitted with white vinyl replacements, and at some point over the years a red brick veneer was added to the base of the home.

The entry opens up into the rear-facing living room, which is anchored by Krisel’s signature modernist fireplace comprised of stacked red brick. The original beamed celotex ceilings are still in place, and a large sliding glass door and floor lets ample south-facing light into the room. The dining room sits opposite the living room and is separated with a full height multi-layered room divider.

Kitchen and laundry

The former service porch between the formerly detached two-car garage has been claimed as additional square footage for the home, and the majority of the kitchen has been relocated to this addition. A portion of the kitchen counters extend into the dining area with a built-in hutch, while the bulk of the kitchen sits in the addition. An open laundry sits in the kitchen, which features older cabinetry, white appliances and white tile counter tops.

The four bedrooms all lay along the east side of the home, and are fully tiled like the remainder of the home. All four bedrooms feature their original vaulted ceilings, and both bedrooms on the end of the home still feature their original clerestories.  Both bathrooms have been updated over the years with newer traditional fixtures and tile, while the master bath still features its original built-in angles mirror and medicine cabinet.

The backyard appears to be big, open and grassy, with the lot backing up to an adjacent drainage easement. A large covered patio sits along the rear of the home, and a shed and children’s play area sit in opposite corners of the yard. There's definitely room for a few trees on this sunny lot, which provides lots of opportunity for planting. 

There’s lot of possibilities with this four-bedroom Krisel in Placentia, and luckily the home appears to be in move-in condition for those looking for a ready-to-go home.
