Walnut Creek ‘super Eichler’ asks $1.4 million

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s pretty rad.

Designed by architect Claude Oakland, who created many of the midcentury homes built by legendary developer, this circa-1969 specimen isn’t just any old Eichler, it’s a super Eichler.

Why the superhero moniker? It all comes down to size. The home at 232 Clyde Drive is one of a handful of gallery Eichlers—also known as “super Eichlers”—that comes with exceptionally large floor plans. Coming in at four bedrooms and four bathrooms, this carefully renovated abode measures over 2,300 square feet across a single floor.

This Eichler is located in Walnut Creek’s tony Northgate neighborhood and features vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, brick fireplace (painted, but still swoon-worthy), and a large open signature atrium.

Newer additions include updated kitchen, baths, LED lighting (tbh, reinstalling the era’s softer globe lighting would be preferable), pool, and more. The renovation, which might cause some purists to grouse, is lovely with its sparing use of color. Overall, a cheerful delight that keeps its midcentury roots intact.

Asking is $1,400,000.
