With a welcoming central atrium, this warm and inviting Orange County Eichler radiates the feeling of entering a hidden gem.

During the 1950s and 60s, prolific developer Joseph Eichler built over 11,000 architect-designed midcentury-modern homes in California. In fact, he is practically synonymous with the style of the era. His homes call to mind a period of more gracious living with the introduction of modern conveniences and an indoor/outdoor lifestyle—and this classic atrium-style residence in Orange County, California, now being offered for $1,035,000, is no exception.
