With a spacious, light-filled atrium providing an easy transition to and from the outdoors, this San Rafael Eichler is high on midcentury style.

Prolific developer Joseph Eichler built over 11,000 midcentury-modern homes in California during the 1950s and 60s. His name conjures up images of airy atriums, post-and-beam construction, tongue-and-groove ceilings, and a cool indoor/outdoor lifestyle—and this four-bedroom, two-bath abode in San Rafael is no exception.

Built in 1959, the light-filled home has recently been treated to a beautiful remodel and now features skylights, expansive glass walls, an open floor plan, as well as an elegant, midcentury roofline. Hitting the market at $1,250,000, scroll ahead for a look inside.
