The "Eichler" is rich in history.  Designed by three teams of internationally recognized architectural firms - Anshen & Allen of San Francisco, Jones & Emmons of Los Angeles, and Claude Oakland & Associates of Oakland - and built by developer Joseph Eichler from in the 1950s to 1960s, these homes occupy a noted place in the post-World War II home building industry that has not been duplicated to this day. After living in a Frank Lloyd Wright home in the 1940's, Mr. Eichler dedicated his home-building business to the design and construction of architecturally acclaimed homes for the family of average means.

 Eichler homes were unusual, fresh and modern unlike the traditional postwar homes that glutted the market, and they quickly became a sales success. His homes featured flat or slightly pitched tar-and-gravel roofs, wood exteriors and entrances through atrium courtyards. Interiors had open kitchens, dining and living areas, vast expanses of glass that looked out on private gardens and patios, effectively opening up the inside of the houses to the outdoors. Interior walls opened up at the top to partition but not fully close off some rooms. Eichler also was an urban planner ahead of his time. He fostered the idea that private residences should be in planned communities clustered with parks, community centers, and other amenities.

Winning awards from prestigious architectural journals and consumer magazines, his homes and their architects received considerable international attention throughout the 50's, 60's and into the 1970's. Now ranging in price from $650,000 to $2,000,000, they dot the California landscape in the San Francisco bay area - and beyond. - with the majority located in the beautiful environs of Marin County, Silicon Valley and in Santa Clara County.
