Built in 1962 by Paradise Homes is this traditionally renovated Palmer & Krisel-designed home new to the market. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,724 expanded square feet on a 12,100 square foot lot with in-ground pool, the asking price of this home is $230,000.
|Front of home|
Sited on a small seven-home cul-de-sac this biggest locational drawback that this home faces is that it sides up to a six lane roadway. The exterior of the home features its original checkerboard blockwork on the two car carport along with sharply creased overhangs on the roofline. A modest addition sits on the north side of the home which adds a butterfly roofline to the property, while the front yard is a blank slate ready for a modernist makeover.
Inside, the living and dining rooms sit at the rear of the home, while the master and secondary bedrooms are split. The inside of the home has been given a very traditional makeover, and most interestingly the ceilings in the living, kitchen and dining rooms appear to have been all been lowered. All of the original clerestory windows located on the front and rear of the home have been removed and stuccoed over, most likely as a result of the lowered ceilings.
|Living room - fireplace is hiding behind entertainment center|
|Living and dining|
The living and dining rooms would have originally featured a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors overlooking the pool and backyard, however those have been removed and replaced with a pair of traditional French doors. The original fireplace appears to be intact in the living room, partially obscured by an entertainment center; however the original block hearth appears to have been removed.
|Kitchen and dining|
The kitchen sits open to the dining room at the front of the home, adjacent to the entry, separated by an added archway. Raised-panel cabinetry topped with granite counters have been added, while white appliances round out the room. The once-vaulted ceiling has been flattened, and can lights have been added while the clerestory windows have been removed.
The master bedroom sits along the north side of the home and has been expended into a master suite. A pair of French doors open to the pool area, and the master, like the rest of the home, is fully tiled. The two secondary bedrooms sit along the south side of the home, and feature mirrored closet doors and ceiling fans. Both bathrooms have been given a traditional makeover, with beige tilework and mosaic accents.
|Pool and backyard|
|Back of home|
|Covered patio at rear of home|
The backyard features a large pool at the center of the yard, and a covered patio sits at the rear of the home. A concrete patio sits between the home and pool, and the rest of the yard, like the front, has been filled with pink rock. A tall wall of oleanders offers buffering between the home and the adjacent roadway, and a raised planter sits at the rear of the pool.
For those that don’t mind a little roadway noise, this home offers potential buyers a move-in ready home that can be personalized over time.
