This Light-Filled Orange County Eichler Home Just Listed For $1.1M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo
A bright and beautifully updated SoCal Eichler house seeks a new owner.

Without a doubt, Joseph Eichler's midcentury tract homes have had a huge impact on contemporary architecture. Designed to be affordable homes that would allow an indoor/outdoor lifestyle in California's temperate climate, they have definitely stood the test of time—but not without the necessary renovations to help usher them into the modern era. 

Located in the Fairhills Eichler tract in Orange, California, this 1960s atrium-style Eichler shines with updates—including a bright and airy open floor plan and a light-filled central atrium. 

Classic post-and-beam construction and a bright orange door create a sunny facade for this updated Orange County Eichler.

The entrance takes you straight into the central atrium. 

In addition to its beautiful polished concrete floors, 586 S. Woodland Street also boasts custom closets, an updated kitchen, and renovated bathrooms. The home also underwent practical and necessary updates that include re-insulated walls and an updated foam roof.

The renovated kitchen features a sleek island-peninsula, allowing seamless indoor/outdoor flow from the glass-walled exterior to the inner atrium.

Sliding doors connect the space with the outdoors. 

The master suite includes an updated ensuite bathroom and sliding doors which open to the backyard.
