Head for the hills, midcentury purists! This major renovation in San Rafael goes above and beyond the usual remodel of an Eichler.

Featuring five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,433 square feet, 1122 Idylberry has done away with most of its circa-1965 past. The floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace has been replaced by concrete paneling. Globe lighting eschewed in favor of more contemporary (see: recessed) illumination. And the signature atrium has been given a pristine modern look, which now sports with a fountain.

The kitchen and bathroom have been overhauled to align with today’s preference of bare, streamlined chic. Tile accents have also been added to the bathrooms as well. And new landscaping has added a tiered succulent garden to the backyard.

But fear not as the bones of the home remain—exposed beams (painted), vaulted ceilings, and clerestory windows are still here.

Asking is $1,800,000 through Barry and Renee Adelmann / Marin Modern Real Estate.
