This Eichler Classic Lives Like A Loft, $1.7MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Joseph Eichler was one of California’s most prodigious developers after WWII, bringing Modernist design (and racial integration) to new communities from the San Francisco Bay area to the Los Angeles basin. Working with a small group of architects and within very specific design parameters—the signature weeping roof lines, interior atriums and walls of glass—he also did infill projects involving only one or few homes, like this one in Thousand Oaks, designed by Claude Oakland.
Built in 1964, this Modernist gem was completely renovated by the current owners, respecting its design history while creating an open loft-like living space.
What We Love: Evoking the iconic black and white photography of Julius Shulman, the current owners have created a very white, very graphic setting, perfect for a collection of Mid-century furniture and decorative arts.
