SOLD: 971 Ticonderoga Dr, Sunnyvale

971 Ticonderoga Dr — $950,000. Listed 4/7/2009 (Shakir Hussein of Imax Realty represents the Seller) Sold for $875k, COE 9/8 – 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms– 1970sf living space on a 7600sf lot– Jones and Emmons Eichler; Twin gable atrium model, Remodeled kitchen, bathrooms. Mark's Preview Notes:  This feels like another distressed sale just like the first time I saw Andalusia come on the market.  There are several broken windows or sliders in the Atrium and there are various unfinished or damaged walls.  The updated kitchen and bathrooms are a nice start, but the fact that this is a very desirable twin gables Atrium model far outweighs any shortcomings in the condition.  Putting some TLC into this Eichler will yield a very nice home of which you could be proud.

SOLD: 1140 S Sage Ct, Sunnyvale

1140 S Sage Ct — $1,188,000. Listed 1/21/09 (Ellen N Saviano of Alain Pinel Realtors represents the Seller) SOLD for $1172K – 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms– 1755sf living space on a 10000sf lot– Atrium Style, 10000sqft park-like lot at end of cul-de-sac, remodeled kitchen with maple & cherry cabinets, bamboo flooring, double-paned windows. Mark's Preview Notes: Here is a very tastefully remodeled Atrium-model Eichler.  The "hobby room" was converted into a formal dining space and the kitchen remodel makes excellent use of the space by pushing the refrigerator into an ingenious location.  The painted-wall colors are excellent choices and what may be most overlooked is the addition of overhead lighting in the bedrooms where Eichler didn't have any originally.  This home is well worth seeing!

Extraordinary Mid-Century Modern 1113 Sage Court North, Sunnyvale     An outstanding example of the beauty and simplicity of the post and beam architecture Joseph Eichler’s architects produced in that era – and an outstanding example of how such a design was the inspiration of the complementary furnishings and appointments you will find in this home.  It is a virtual museum housing  classic and timeless pieces of furniture, designed by architects and designers of the time.  This seldom seen floorplan well demonstrates how public and private spaces can both be achieved simultaneously.  The largely-original home has been tastefully updated in the open and airy kitchen, with beautiful and plentiful maple cabinetry, granite counter surfaces, and gas range with hidden vent system.  A gorgeous European-style master bedroom bath with floor to ceiling glass mosaic tile, and frameless glass shower enclosure is a fitting complement.         Dimensions/Specifications:     House 1722 SF     Lot 0.16 AC 4 bedrooms, 2 updated baths –courtyard entry, updated kitchen, kitchen-family/dining room, living room with architectural cantilevered fireplace, T&G roof, and copper radiant heating.  Slate-blue/gray custom colored – in the concrete-flooring in the living room, courtyard patio and rear patio to emphasize the California modern “inside/outside”design of the home.
