This one’s not a fixer-upper.

If you’re looking for an updated Eichler, this 1,727-square-foot model in the Fairmeadows tract located in Orange, California, may just catch your eye.  

Built in 1962, the four-bedroom, two-bath home has already been spruced up with modern features that respect the home’s original midcentury modern character. Highlights include updated bathrooms with Carrara marble and walnut cabinetry, a private backyard, and a renovated kitchen with a pretty impressive "edible garden" off the side. Additionally, the central atrium—a key feature in many Eichler models—has new concrete and is perfectly positioned for enjoying indoor/outdoor living.

Drought-tolerant plants create a lovely landscape which frames the home’s classic midcentury profile.
