The Eichler is to Palo Alto as the Victorian is to San Francisco. Which is to say there’s a lot of them to go around. And the ones that are available want a hefty penny.

Take, for example, this 1958 midcentury gem at 1008 Loma Verde Avenue. It still bears key signifiers of its past—including tongue and groove ceilings, mahogany paneling, globe lighting.

The kitchen, however, has been redone with (unfortunate) jade-hued granite countertops. No matter. Whomever purchases this abode will have the dough to revert it entirely back to its original glory.

Asking is $2,298,000.
