If your Mid-Century Modern fantasies extend to deep Suburbia, we suggest a look at this early Eichler in the Rancho San Miguel neighborhood of Walnut Creek. Asking $670,000, the 3-bed, 2-bath, c.1955 house is on a corner lot between two private courtyards, and the sympathetic renovation includes new indoor and outdoor kitchens. The old garage has been converted into a family room, a new 2-car garage has been added on, and the classic Eichler radiant heat has been superseded by a new HVAC system (seriously, it gets hot in Walnut Creek.) There may even be room for a lap pool. Good stuff. On the market at the end of July, and there's an open house on Sunday, August 12 from 12:00PM to 3:00PM.
