Architect A. Quincy Jones, along with Frederick E. Emmons, churned out midcentury-modern designs for thousands of Eichler homes. One of his works, located in the Oakland Hills, hit the market recently. Located at 8010 Shay Drive, it’s a sight to behold, especially for MCM fans.

For starters, signature Eichler touches can be found throughout. The double-A frame atrium, soaring ceilings, exposed beams, and skylights are a delight. Noticeable, however, are new(ish) kitchen, flooring, and light fixtures.

Originally built as a five-bedroom home, one of the bedrooms and the garage have been converted into a den area with custom wet bar, sunken lounge area, floating steel fireplace, period lighting, print wallpaper, and more.

The enclosed pool even comes with a custom fireplace to boot. Groovy.

Coming in at four beds, two baths, and 2,421 square feet, this 1965 abode seeks $1,050,000.
