Built in 1966, this house is in one of the last series of Eichlers built in the upper Lucas Valley development.  This particular three-bedroom, two-bath model was designed by Claude Oakland, one of a number of architects who contributed designs for Mr. Eichler. It is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, with an unusually large front yard, and contains a single-car garage with an additional carport and an interior atrium. Our home has been kept in pristine original condition, and most of the furnishings are carefully curated mid-century pieces collected over a number of years. The only major alterations were a new hardscape/patio and deck structures, added by the previous owners, who themselves are architects. Years ago, a team from Pixar apparently toured our home to gather visual inspiration for the mid-century home of the main characters in the film The Incredibles.

Our home is also unusual in that it is one of only a handful of so-called Townhouse models. At around 1,500 square feet (not including the garage space), these were slightly smaller than the typical Eichlers in the area. This gives the home a unique and charming coziness, despite numerous walls of glass and large open space vistas. The home was acquired in 2005, and we are the third owners overall. Furnishings include a number of vintage pieces by Knoll, as well as by designers Paul McCobb, George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames, Raymond Loewy, Hans Wegner, Vico Magistretti, and Josef Albers, along with a large collection of sculptural works by British artist Brian Willsher.
