This light, bright midcentury home is renovated and ready for its next owner.

Love Eichler homes, but not interested in taking on an extensive renovation? This 1957 model may be for you. Located in San Rafael's lower Lucas Valley, this 1,805-square-foot midcentury home is completely remodeled and modernized. 

While 595 Blackberry Lane has a contemporary look that may not appeal to Eichler purists, the home's lovely midcentury bones and move-in ready status make it quite the find. The four-bedroom, two-bath residence features a huge great room centered around a bright, contemporary kitchen—instead of an atrium—an omission that adds precious square footage to the living space.
