2180 Elderberry Lane / Joseph Eichler


A cheerfully restored original Joseph Eichler has come on the market in San Rafael, California, and it’s poised to tickle the fancy of any mid century modern enthusiast.

A white exterior featuring that trademark Eichler roof and accented by orange details sets the mood for the 150-square-metre four-bedroom. Inside, walls are also white, as are the beamed and vaulted ceilings and the speckled floors. A set of orange and turquoise racer stripes even make an appearance.

Original elements like the Philippine mahogany panelled walls, kitchen cabinetry, globe lights, and Japanese style closet doors add heft to the bright space, and also keep the residence close to its 1958 roots, while walls of glass thrust it open to the sun — via Curbed
