Speaking of Eichlers, here’s a North Bay specimen that shows why people fuss over maintaining the spirit of the midcentury-modern developer’s iconic design.
Featuring four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,794 square feet, 60 Golden Hinde Boulevard (located on a street with other fabulous Eichlers) comes with new features that blend seamlessly with the home’s original details. New kitchen and light fixtures pair nicely with the original fireplace, Philippine mahogany walls, and Japanese style closet doors.
The original cork flooring has made way for newer VCT tile flooring. And, yes, the ceilings have been painted. That’s the nice thing about Eichlers: They’re adaptable creatures, provided you have the right kind of renovation in mind. (The less said about some regrettable contemporary Eichler renovations, the better.)
Overall, a joy to behold. Asking is $1,150,000.
