Easy, breezy, beautiful

We cover a range of houses in our House of the Day column here at Curbed, but we always have a soft spot for the midcentury modern style. And nothing exudes California cool quite like the work of developer Joseph Eichler. Known for thousands of glass-filled, boxy homes from the 1950s and 60s, Eichler was the developer of this Claude Oakland-designed home in Orange County, California.

Constructed in 1964, the four-bedroom, two-bath home has been freshly remodeled with authenticity in mind. Original features include Arcadia aluminum sliding doors, mahogany paneling, interior door hardware, and 1960s light switches. An open floor plan allows enough space for a dinette off of the kitchen, and Eichler’s signature floor-to-ceiling windows let in plenty of light.

Like most of Eichler and Oakland’s designs, the post-and-beam home features a central atrium and a spacious backyard for indoor-outdoor entertaining.

Have you been dreaming of an Eichler of your own? 1278 North San Remo Place is on the market now for $1,125,000.

Mahogany wood paneling stays true to the home’s 1960 style.
