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.
