A Bay Area Eichler With Custom Updates Hits the Market at $1.29M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo
This classic midcentury home includes plenty of custom features, a light-filled atrium, and over 2,000 square feet of striking living space.

Practically synonymous with midcentury-modern style, prolific developer Joseph Eichler built more than 11,000 properties in California between 1949 to 1966—many of which are still coveted today. 

This classic atrium-style Eichler in San Rafael, California, is no exception. Having undergone extensive renovations over the years, the 2,088-square-foot home now boasts high-quality modern updates, while still featuring much of its original charm and character. Currently on the market for $1,290,000, the property includes four bedrooms, three baths, an abundance of custom cabinetry, along with a spacious guest suite that was once the former garage. Keep scrolling for a peek inside.

Despite the entrance hall being semi-enclosed, you can still get a glimpse of the light-filled interior thanks to the open atrium. 

The central atrium is a popular, defining design feature of all Eichler homes.

Flooded with natural light, this property offers a true indoor-outdoor living experience. 

The open living/dining/kitchen area features a wall of glass, post-and-beam vaulted ceilings, Eichler's signature brick fireplace, as well as radiant floor heating throughout.

The dining area looks out over an exterior patio.

The former owner was a master craftsman who custom-created all the cabinetry in the kitchen, bedroom, and closets.

The kitchen features a wall of glass that overlooks the atrium. 

If desired, the track lighting can easily be updated with more contemporary styles. 

The master suite has sliding doors that lead out to the exterior patio. 

Along with creating the custom cabinetry, the former owner also converted the garage into a spacious guest suite.  

The wraparound backyard is lush and private with a large sun-filled patio.
