Just Say Eichler…

Following on the heals heels (thanks for catching the spelling fail “word bitch“) of a post I did earlier today about some homes I know are available for sale, but not yet “on the market”, I present to you 76 Amber Drive, an original Eichler, in the Eichler rich zone of San Francisco’s Diamond Heights neighborhood, that had been “quietly” marketed for a good couple of weeks before finally hitting MLS today.







Sexy it is not. Eichler it is, and sometimes that all you have to say…

Claude Oakland Designed Mid Century Eichler In Marin

Oh if we had time to publish these things when they’re hot off the presses. Oh well, we’re still fans of all things architecture, especially when Eichler is involved, so we’ll throw them up for your delight. Coming soon to the Lucas Valley (Marin) real estate market (and what we’d almost consider an epicenter of Eichlers), 26 Oak Mountain Court.

It’s a rare gallery model Eichler designed by architect Claude Oakland, which has been extensively remodeled and expanded to reach 2,400 sq ft, 4 bedrooms, and 3 full baths. This home was featured on the American Institute of Architects home tour and is truly spectacular inside and out (and the cycling down the road is nothing short of world class).

The home will be priced at $1,550,000, is not yet on the MLS, and of course, we can always get you in early.

Suckers For Eichler

Eichler Under $700,000 with a Pool?

No, this is not a paid post. Yes, we subscribe to many, many, many newsletters and industry publications. Yes, some get more play than others, but what do you expect…some are simply better. So let us know (thefrontsteps@gmail.com) if there is something we should be reading that we’re not.

And how could you pass up an Eichler under $700,000 with a pool! Seriously!?

Our thoughts exactly!

No, this is not in San Francisco, but it’s close enough.
