Many were built, few were chosen…
Chosen to be included in the book of Eichler Homes – Design for Living, as an outstanding example of contemporary architecture and complementary landscaping, the sizable home with its 3450SF footprint is wisely situated to take full advantage of its large quarter-acre lot. Side and rear yards were designed and planted by landscape architect Yamagami and Associates, and contain over 14 different species of trees and plants in a beautiful and private park-like setting.
Originally designed by Eichler architect Claude Oakland, it was tastefully expanded and updated in 1987 by architect William Duquette. The remodel included a marvelous family room with custom cabinetry and lighting, open kitchen with a large island cooking, prep and seating area, utility laundry room with custom cabinetry, hall-bath and outside entry, as well as a large double-pane glassed in “sun room” with expansive views to the rear and side yards and easy access to the formal living areas.
