Eichler Communities

~ Santa Clara County ~ Stanford There are over 100 Eichler homes located in the beautiful environs of the Stanford University property.  Virtually all of the homes are considerably larger than the homes found in the “normal” communities of Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, etc.  They are recognizable Eichlers with more square footage devoted to the home, in particular the living or “gathering” spaces.  They are usually set on the larger lots and rather secluded by the mature landscaping.  Frank Lloyd Wright fans and devotees will probably recognize the famous “Hana House” of the world renown architect, located on Frenchmans Road.  However, Stanford Eichlers are only available to faculty and staff, and each property is still on leased land of Stanford University. Palo Alto Palo Alto is often spoken of as the original home of Eichler Homes so many years ago.  It is true that more Eichlers were built in Palo Alto than in any other community and that two headquarter offices were located in Palo Alto.  Almost 3000 Eichler homes were built in this city and on the neighboring Stanford University grounds. Palo Alto is home to some of the most well-known enclaves including Greenmeadow, Fairmeadow, Green Gables and Los Arboles but you will find less well known and defined enclaves throughout much of this famous northern California community.  All of the Eichler architects, i.e., Anshen+Allen, Jones & Emmons, and Claude Oakland & Associates designed homes for Eichler organizations […]

Back in the saddle to a bit of activity during the holiday. As mentioned early this month, the market activity on my Eichler Market Data page got down into the 60's – 66 to be exact – and will probably stay around that area for a month or so. Typical. As mentioned last week, I'm happy to announce that I have formed a new relationship with a very active and capable team of realtors, so that Eichler enthusiasts and home sellers can continue to benefit from the activities and history of Eichler Homes Realty – now infused with new energy and talent.
