Eichler Houses

Eichler homes are within the most successful examples of modernist architecture for the mass market.

Joseph Eichler was the developer who, inspired by modernist architects as Richard Neutra and Frank Lloyd Wright, brought quality but affordable architecture to post-WWII American families and across the entire mid-century period.

Eichler homes are more than just homes, they represent a way of living. Still today their unique and iconic design is synonym of a lifestyle which the new owners must and are more than willing to embrace.

For This Eichler In Granada Hills, Time Stands Still

Randy and his family bought this Eichler in Granada Hills, CA, in 1979 and immediately knew this was the one. “The moment we opened the front door and looked right through the atrium to the garden beyond the enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, we knew this house was a serious contender.”
