Location: San Rafael, California
This beautifully renovated home in San Rafael, California, was designed by Claude Oakland, who is considered one of the most prolific of Joseph Eichler’s architects and who created around 5,000 modern homes for the master builder.
Completed in 1964 and since updated, the bright and airy midcentury home boasts all the trappings of the period, including a dramatic open-plan great room with vaulted and beamed ceilings, skylights, brick fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, and original globe lights.
Upon entering the 2,322-square-foot residence, one is greeted by a cozy family room that sets the mood for the rest of the space. A partition separates it from the rest of the breezy floorplan, which comprises the aforementioned great room, a dining area, and an updated kitchen with maple cabinets and breakfast area—all graciously lit by skylights above and clerestory and full-height glazing on the far ends.
Four bedrooms, two baths, outdoor entertaining opportunities, and a carport round out the property, which is located at at 1154 Idylberry Road. It’s offered at just under $1.4 million after a recent $30,000 price cut. Have a look.
