A Restored North Bay Eichler With Classic Midcentury Details Asks $1.4M

By Kathryn M.
Full of signature Eichler details, the 1958 residence offers sleek style after a top-to-bottom renovation.

There's a lot to admire about the Eichler at 836 Flaxberry. Set on a quiet, residential street in San Rafael, California, the 1958 home boasts major curb appeal thanks to a recent remodel. With a newly painted facade and fresh landscaping, the residence features several private entertaining areas enclosed by a new redwood fence—and that's just the outside.

Recently renovated from the inside out, the Eichler at 836 Flaxberry comes with a trove of midcentury detail, as well as a number of modern finishes. A new redwood fence wraps the private front yard, which is shaded by mature trees and also newly landscaped.

Spanning 1,655 square feet, the interior is just as captivating, featuring large living spaces, all of which connect via an open floor plan. Signature Eichler aesthetics, such as exposed beams and wood-paneled ceilings, nod to the home's past, while sleek updates accommodate for modern living.

The front entry opens into a large great room that spans one entire side of the home.

Wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass, the living room looks out onto a private backyard. Two narrow windows and bookcases flank opposite sides of the fireplace. 

Sliding glass doors in the living room flood the area with natural light and also offer access to the backyard patio and lawn. Steps away, barn-like rolling doors divide the space from a small yet cozy office. An eat-in kitchen features a large island, white quartz counters, all-white cabinetry, and stainless Viking appliances. Wide-planked hardwoods run throughout.

Double-hung barn doors separate the living room from a small office nook.

Opposite the living room, a large kitchen and dining area flow together within a large entertaining area. Sliding glass doors connect the space with a patio in the front yard.

Original clerestory windows flood the new kitchen with natural light. Vintage-style globe pendant lights add midcentury flare.

In total, the remodeled residence now offers four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom includes an ensuite bath, as well as outdoor access via large sliding glass doors. Scroll ahead to see inside more of the home, currently listed for $1,395,000.
