A Double A-Frame Eichler in the Bay Area Asks $925K

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo
Located in Concord, California, this double A-frame Eichler is an authentic midcentury classic with striking curb appeal.

Built in 1964 by A. Quincy Jones—an iconic midcentury architect responsible for the design of thousands of Eichler homes—the residence features over 2,000 square feet of open-plan living space and is full of midcentury character with a spacious atrium, clean lines, wood paneling, walls of glass, and globe pendant lighting. 

The home has undergone some changes to suit the modern family: a wall was eliminated to open up what was previously the smallest bedroom, and the space adjacent to the kitchen was expanded to create a larger den. Expansive glazing brings the outdoors in, and the great room features soaring, tongue-and-groove ceilings that create a dramatic and airy living space. Scroll through for a look inside this stunning specimen. 

The entry to the double A-frame model showcases the home's post-and-beam construction. 

Standing in the entry, the double A-frames are clearly visible. Here is a look at the second A-frame towards the back of the house.

The home's nature-filled center atrium embodies the indoor/outdoor ideal. 

Two walls of glass frame the atrium, filling the home with natural light and a strong sense of the outdoors.

A bold, brick fireplace anchors the living room. 

The dining room is set off in its own separate space. 

What was previously a small, fifth bedroom was incorporated into the expanded den next to the kitchen, creating a more fluid living space. 

Classic midcentury features such as wood paneling, globe pendant lighting, and beams appear throughout the home. 

Sliding glass doors in the kitchen open to the outdoors. 

The master bedroom features an ensuite bathroom and opens via sliding doors to the atrium.

The expansive, enclosed backyard features a gas-heated pool with a diving board.
