Built by A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons for noted developer Joseph Eichler, this circa-1964 gem, replete with kidney-shaped pool, palm trees, and a touch of turquoise, is a little bit of the Southern California desert in the East Bay.
Featuring four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,872 square feet, 1261 Lancashire Drive comes with all of the trappings familiar with Eichers: exposed beams, globe lighting, and vaulted ceilings that are (shield your eyes, purists) painted.
This Concord home has also been updated with new kitchen, baths, and flooring. There’s also some disconcerting track lighting here, which, fear not, can easily be ripped out with glee by the home’s new owners.
There’s also the aforementioned pool in the back in keeping with the midcentury Palm Springs theme. All it needs now is a tray of rum-based tiki cocktails to make it complete.
Asking is $875,000.
