Calling Eichler Owners

I’ve been contacted by an independent filmmaker who is looking for an Eichler to use for a couple scenes in an upcoming film he is directing.  He is specifically looking for an Eichler with tiled floors (not wood or carpet, etc).  The filming will only be in the living room and should take 2 days in the week of March 16th.  Call or email me if this is something you could support.  408-887-1821  mark@themeshnetwork.com

Withdrawn: 3056 Greer Rd, Palo Alto

3056 Greer Rd — $1,288,000.  Listed 2/12/09 (John V. Pinto of Realty World-John V. Pinto And Associates represents the Seller) – 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms – 2030sf living space on a 6837sf lot – Atrium model, added detached studio, custom Eichler replacement double pane windows and doors throughout. Mark’s Preview Notes:  I like the feeling of this Eichler — call it good feng-shui if you like.   The kitchen may have been remodeled a few years ago but the colors and finishes are contemporary.  The cabinets are complimeted by gray colored “ash-wood” laminate floors.  The living room overlooking the rear deck just feels very comfortable.  The bonus with this home is the addition of a detached studio in the front courtyard, which does not hurt the flow of the home, but very nicely adds a space for a home business or artist studio.
