So revered are the midcentury modern tract homes that developer Joseph Eichler applied en masse to neighborhoods in the Bay Area and Greater Los Angeles that it's been theorized that growing up in a knock-off Eichler planted the seed for "the simplicity and elegance of Apple's products" in the mind of a young Steve Jobs. And not to burst any cult-of-Jobs bubbles, but it bears consideration that not all Eichlers are the same; some are cheerily updated, some are "rare and swanky," others still might soon be built by someone else entirely. This special snowflake, turned up not long ago by Curbed SF, is located in the central San Francisco neighborhood of Diamond Heights, where apparently Eichler "distanced himself from his trademark one-story, post-and-beam ranch style home design, and instead created seven floor plans for the neighborhood that are either two-story or split-level homes." Not only that, but it's been visited by a host of rather expressive updates.
This one isn't a two-story (those look like this) but it is a bit beefier than most, at around 1,935 square feet with four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and a nice atrium. For $1.425M—after being bank-owned and sold for $705K back in 2012—it comes with a cool gray and lavender paint job brightly accented in orange and lime green, as well as a long list of renovated features, from "Caesarstone countertops & built-in stainless appliances" to floors of polished concrete and hardwood.
