If drooling over stunning midcentury homes is a favorite pastime, you may want to set aside a few extra minutes today. While on Zillow we spotted an off-market Eichler that stopped us in our tracks. Say hello to your new dream home!
This 1960 midcentury dream home is the work of renowned real estate developer Joseph Eichler and architectural team Jones and Emmons. Located in Orange, California this ranch-style home maintains the integrity of the original design while incorporating carefully-chosen modern elements fit for 21st-century setting.
Eichler Gets a Fresh Twist
The original kitchen remains intact—complete with retro cabinetry—but is also equipped with modern appliances, such as a stainless steel double oven and dishwasher, as well as a Viking 6-burner cooktop.
According to the listing, “This home has the upgrades that enhance with a touch of style, without marginalizing the integrity of the classic-vintage design. The outside spaces have been recently and professionally re-landscaped to be water-wise with the Hawaiian vacation vibe.”
Other updated features include a foam membrane roof, Brazilian teak hardwood floors, environmentally conscious landscaping, a forced air HVAC system, and new period-appropriate siding. A low-pitched roof keeps with the designs of the era and linear panel windows opens up the property to its surroundings, inviting in residents and guests of the space.
