A well-preserved Eichler in Concord, California, hits the market for the first time in over 50 years.

Eichler purists take note: Although this Bay Area Eichler is lacking some of the modern updates that other Eichlers have received, it has been lovingly preserved, and it's overflowing with authentic midcentury charm. Now on the market for the first time in over 50 years, this Claude Oakland model was built by Eichler Homes in 1964. A notable midcentury architect, Oakland is credited with "cleaning up the lines" of some of the original Eichler designs. This model is one of Eichler Homes' most popular designs, and its open-plan layout features four large bedrooms, two baths, and almost 2,000 square feet of living space. 

Of particular note are original details such as unpainted ceilings, mahogany paneling, globe pendant lighting, and the home's classic midcentury facade. A bright orange door leads into a spacious open-air atrium overflowing with greenery—the perfect spot to enjoy indoor-outdoor living.
