Calling all Bay Area buyers—grab this beautifully remodeled Eichler home while you still can.

Originally designed in 1971 by Claude Oakland—one of the most prolific of Joseph Eichler’s architects—this 2,222-square-foot property was one of the last Eichler homes to have been built. With four bedrooms and two baths, the gorgeous abode also boasts all the beloved midcentury features that these coveted houses are known for—a central open-sky atrium, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, and a soaring post-and-beam ceiling.

Now, this beautifully restored dwelling is being listed for the first time since 1973 at $1,450,000. Scroll ahead for a peek inside. 

Eichlers are virtually synonymous with enjoying a classic California-style indoor/outdoor lifestyle, and this revamped home is no exception.
