Location: Sunnyvale, California
If you’re searching for some California modern design, check out this double A-frame Eichler in the Rancho Sans Souci tract of Sunnyvale, California. Designed by architect Claude Oakland and built by Joseph Eichler in 1968, the four-bedroom, two-bath home features the gabled roofs, exposed rafters and beams, and tongue-and-groove paneling that were common in midcentury tract homes.
Measuring 2,308 square feet, the home’s floor-to-ceiling glass walls bring in light, and you access the house through a private open-air courtyard with concrete patio. An unpainted brick wood-burning fireplace is the focal point of the living room, and authentic details like globe lights and the original stain help maintain the home’s style.
A remodeled galley kitchen features Caesarstone countertops, custom Columbia teak cabinets, JennAir appliances, and a convenient pass through to the the dining area. The home boasts concrete floors with integrated radiant heat throughout, as well as custom-stained luan mahogany doors, a laundry room with storage, and a master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.
The low-maintenance yard is spacious thanks to a large lot size, while drought-resistant plants complement a custom built Obechi wood bench, poured concrete planters, and low-temperature artificial grass.
If you’re ready to pull the trigger on an Eichler, 936 Olympus Court is on the market now for $2,748,000.
