A Handsome East Bay Eichler Lists For $875K

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo
The Palm Springs vibes are particularly strong at this pristine midcentury gem in Concord, California.

A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons of Emmons & Jones built this midcentury beauty back in 1964 for the prolific and iconic California developer, Joseph Eichler. 

Located in Concord, California’s Parkwood Estates, the well-preserved, 1,872-square-foot home feels like a piece of the Palm Springs desert has been transported to the East Bay. Featuring four bedrooms, two remodeled bathrooms, an open floor plan, a garage, and a kidney-shaped pool, 1261 Lancashire Drive also possesses many familiar features that have become synonymous with the genre—vaulted tongue-and-groove ceilings, globe lighting, and a covered courtyard. Scroll ahead for a look inside.

The meticulously landscaped front yard is low-maintenance and features drought-tolerant plants and a sprinkler system for an authentic Palm Springs vibe.

The spacious open floor plan features an impressive great room with vaulted ceilings which have been painted white. In addition to the living room and dining room area, there is also a den set just off the kitchen. 

A wood-burning brick fireplace anchors the expansive space.
