From the agent: "Originally meant to be their forever home, this immaculately renovated Eichler is hitting the market and yours for the taking. Designed by architect Claude Oakland and renovated by a seasoned midcentury aficionado, Blaine Siler, this highly desired pitched roof–and–atrium model has no expense spared. Detailed with mahogany custom cabinetry throughout, Miele appliances, handstamped wallpaper, and a chef’s kitchen, the home follows all the period-correct vernacular. Situated in Rancho Del Diablo, Concord, this area is considered to be the final frontier of the most ‘affordable’ Eichler in the Bay Area." 

This 1963 model Eichler by architect Claude Oakland features four bedrooms and two bathrooms clustered around a central atrium. The single-level residence is located in the Rancho Del Diablo neighborhood of Concord, California—one of three Eichler developments in the area.

A down-to-the-studs remodel by owner and midcentury enthusiast Blaine Siler preserved and restored the original elements where possible. Only the living room and kitchen retained the original pickled stain on the tongue-and-groove ceiling, so a custom faux-stained finish was developed to match in areas that had been painted over in prior years.

The single-level home at 4094 Wilson Lane was updated with custom mahogany cabinetry and radiant-heated vinyl composite tile (VCT) flooring throughout. 

The new chef’s kitchen includes stacked Miele ovens, a paneled refrigerator and dishwasher, and an induction cooktop.

A Nelson Saucer Bubble pendant hangs in the foyer adjacent to the living room, where a full-height, white-painted brick fireplace is flanked on both sides by floor-to-ceiling glass windows.

Sliding glass doors connect the dining room to a serene backyard lounge area.

A new office nook just off the kitchen is positioned steps away from sliding doors that lead to the side terrace.

Noguchi Akari 30A Ceiling Lamp
Akari Light Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi are considered icons of 1950s modern design. Designed by Noguchi beginning in 1951 and handmade for a half century by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan, the paper lanterns are a harmonious blend of Japanese handcraft and modernist form.

Handstamped wallpaper creates an eye-catching feature wall in one of the home’s four bedrooms.

The renovated bathrooms include custom mahogany vanities and Corian countertops.

The primary closet’s original dropped ceiling was removed during the renovation in order to add height to the space. New mahogany paneling and custom millwork complete the transformation.

A generously proportioned two-car garage offers ample space for parking and storage.

The globe pendants in the garage are indicative of the Eichler’s onetime model home status. "Ball lights were installed only in Eichler model home garages," says the current owner. "They set the garages up as sales offices and sold the lots and models from there."

The front facade was updated with a period-correct sliding barn door garage that gave the home "an instant facelift," says the current owner.

The fenced-in backyard offers plenty of space for gathering and entertaining. A 1963 penny is embedded in the patio, providing a nostalgic relic of the home’s midcentury construction.
