On a blisteringly hot day (if one can consider 82 degrees in San Francisco sweltering), these four spectacular Eichler homes with swimming pools will cure your sun-stroke blues. All of them are located north of the Golden Gate Bridge—in San Rafael, to be exact—so they could very well make you yearn for the bucolic suburban life.
These four homes are among the 11,000 houses Joseph Eichler built in California. His work typically features a single story design, plenty of clean lines, sloped plank roofs, exposed beams, and an overall lovely midcentury aura.
Which one would you dive into?
