Eichler 'Tropical Wonderland' With Gentle Updates Asks $750K

New, 5 comments

"Life is too short not to love where you live," asserts the brokerbabble for this newly listed $750K property in Orange, Calif. "Who wouldn't want the opportunity to purchase a stunning, magazine-featured, mid-century modern Eichler home that makes you feel like you live a tropical wonderland?" Designed by famed modernist A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons, and built by midcentury superstar Joseph Eichler in 1960, the three-bedroom, 1,639-square-foot wonder-residence offers only the most sparing of updates, for fear of "marginalizing the integrity of the classic-vintage design." Basically, there's a newly reinforced infrastructure and roof, and even some state-of-the-art kitchenware, but all the good stuff—namely that sweet retro panelling and cabinetry—has been left intact. Outside, another recent renovation offers a "professionally re-landscaped" backyard that's positively aglow with "Hawaiian vacation vibes." Crank up the Beach Boys and take a look:
