Your $765K Eichler is Waiting for You (However, It's in Oakland)

New, 13 comments


After the unfortunate slaying of an Eichler we witnessed recently in Diamond Heights it's awfully refreshing to see a good one on the market for $765K. Built in 1965, this 5-bed, 2-bath A-frame belongs to Oakland's Sequoyah Hills development—sometimes referred to as the Lost Eichlers of Oakland Hills for its relatively small number of Eichlers. A sales brochure from the time helpfully explains that Sequoyah homes—some of them designed by Claude Oakland—adhere to "a tradition that combines skill and imagination in a most natural manner." Indeed! Prospective buyers also learned about the comforts of "clean and quiet" radiant heating and new features such as the atrium ("a protected outdoor area which is a 'room open to the sky'"). This one's still got its globe lights, plus some new quartz counters in the kitchen. Not sure why just one bedroom is pictured; you'll have to head to Sunday's open house (1–4 p.m.) to see the rest.
