Mid-Century Non-Eichler

Mid-Century Eichler

This is a class of homes built throughout the Bay Area from the 1940s through the mid 1970s where it is prominent to see low-pitch or flat roofs, radiant heat systems built into the slab foundation, post-and-beam construction with open ceilings, and wood interior wall paneling. The most notable of these mid-century modern homes in the Bay Area is of course Joseph Eichler — and we host the premier web site dedicated to these homes at Eichler Homes.

An incredible ultra-modern makeover.  Pictures just aren't enough you have to see it in person.  Great floorplan with private patio off the upstairs master that feels like a retreat!

Yes, a Mid-Century Modern townhouse!  I have never been able to get confirmation that this is an Eichler built complex or not but it is a great find nonetheless.  These single story units don't come on the market often and when they do they are a real find!  Open beam with tongue and groove ceilings, sliders out to multiple patio areas, and globe lights of the period.  A huge bonus is the great Sunnyvale schools, Cumberland ES, Sunnyvale MS, and Homestead HS — making it probably the cheapest entrypoint for a home going to these schools!

Not Mid-Century but totally modern for sure.  Stunning is just the beginning.  Multiple Nana Walls in various rooms including the detached studio.  Awesome tarazzo floors with embedded radiant heat, double showers in the master bathroom, and a great mix of both wood and stone textures throughout.  On the down side, the detached garage may be a turnoff for some folks but look at all the other benefits!
