Mid-Century Modern: Eichler Whole-House Restoration
Our clients bought this rundown, bank-owned property because they love Mid-Century Modern design and a challenge.
Built in 1965, the home was remodeled in the 1980s without concern for its modernist lineage. We renovated the 2,121 sq. ft. five-bedroom Eichler Double A, featuring glass walls, post-and-beam construction, a central courtyard, and an open floor plan. The home is situated in *Sequoyah Hills.
The project entailed restoring the structural integrity of the deteriorated carport canopy rafter beams over the entry, insulation, plumbing, electrical, global repairs, landscape upgrades, drainage, and refurbishing the original kitchen, mahogany wall covering, and fireplace.
*Sequoyah Hills is an Eichler development in the East Bay with forty-nine homes, showcasing remarkable architectural integrity fifty years after they were built. The community is nicknamed the “Lost Eichlers of the Oakland Hills”. Developer Joseph Eichler envisioned well-designed homes for the American mainstream, embodying inclusivity, affordability, and the relaxed California lifestyle.
