Built in 1965 during the heyday of Eichler home construction, this Sequoyah Heights model was designed by the highly prolific midcentury architect Claude Oakland. Oakland spent over 25 years working for Joseph Eichler and is credited with designing over 3,430 of the developer's homes. He is also credited with "cleaning up the lines" of the Eichler aesthetic.
True to form, the first thing that strikes you about 8160 Phaeton Drive is its simple yet distinctive rectangular facade, accented by beams that extend out to create a pergola-like canopy and lovely, linear shadows. Inside, the classic home features a large, open-air atrium; a great room anchored by a wood-burning, brick fireplace; chic mahogany paneling; tongue-and-groove ceilings; walls of glass; and naturally, a strong indoor/outdoor connection.
