A Bay Area Eichler With a Backyard Casita Lists For $1.2M
Located in the Sequoyah Hills neighborhood of Oakland, California—one of the smallest Eichler neighborhoods in the Bay Area—this 1965 model, known as the OKC-63, was designed by renowned midcentury modern architect Claude Oakland.
Oakland, who worked for Joseph Eichler for over 25 years, was credited with designing over 3,430 Eichler homes and was said to have been responsible for "cleaning up the lines" of some of the original designs—helping to create what is now known as the Eichler aesthetic. Boasting original features and heaps of midcentury charm, 8050 Shay Drive has all the trappings: a large, central atrium; a great room with unpainted, tongue-in-groove ceilings; original wood wall paneling; and a wood-burning brick fireplace to anchor it all.
