While, indeed, this circa-1965 Eichler in San Rafael took a ride on the renovation rollercoaster, the results are anything but antiseptic or boring. Neither a white wall nor recessed 100-watt bulb can be found inside this delightful home from the legendary midcentury modern developer, which now features a palette of earthy hues and muted pastels.
Featuring three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,125 square feet, 1118 Idylberry Road comes white pebble concrete flooring, vintage cabinetry with multi-colored drawers, wood-burning fireplace, globe and artichoke lighting, signature soaring ceiling and exposed beams, and more.
So much of what makes Eichlers so special—and so sought after—remains intact here. The brick fireplace, Philippine mahogany and redwood walls, and central atrium are, as always, a delight. And updated spaces, like the master bath, which has been renovated into a larger space (a nice change of pace; Eichler bathrooms leave much to be desired), mix nicely with the home’s ’60s vibes.
Asking is $1,475,000.
