Midcentury purists may grouse, but this Eichler specimen in San Rafael, renovated to the hilt, is still a mighty fine circa-1958 home, white barn doors and all.
Featuring four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,655 square feet, 836 Flaxberry comes with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and a brick fireplace, all of which have been adorned with bright white paint. Contemporary barn doors have been added to the living room as well, rounding out a design geared toward today’s tastes.
Glass walls are another remaining Eichlerian highlight, which allow for maximum natural light to flood the living room and dining area. The bathrooms and kitchen have also been revamped from head to toe.
The front yard has been given a major overhaul care of a horizontal wooden fence that now creates a private green space safe from the eyes of curious passersby.
Other new upgrades include oak hardwood flooring, lighting fixtures, fans, and a roof with two skylights. And finally, the two-car garage comes with an EV electrical charging station.
Asking is $1,395,000; the listing is through Renee Adelmann of Bay Area Modern Residential Real Estate.
