When a “super Eichler” hits the market, it’s a red-letter day. Noted for being larger than the iconic midcentury developer’s typical specimens, these Eichlers (of which there are only a handful in the Bay Area) come with exceptionally large floor plans. Today one such abode, located in the East Bay suburb of Walnut Creek, is for sale.

Featuring four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,294 square feet, 260 Bliss Court comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, globe lighting, and exposed beams, and skylights. But the home’s biggest eye-catcher is the large central atrium with clerestory windows and a wood cathedral ceiling that runs the entire length of the home.

Also of note, a lanai. Yes, a lanai. The layout staple of the Golden Girls, a lanai is an open-sided veranda with a roof. The one inside this Walnut Creek home is located just off the kitchen and walled on two sides by glass.

Other amenities include a pool, a jacuzzi, and side gardens.

Asking is $1,600,000 through Ken Fox of East Bay Modern Real Estate.
