A spick-and-span Eichler home is on the market in the Fairmeadow tract of Orange, California, where approximately 350 houses built by the developer are spread out across three other tracts that are pushing to be designated as a historic district.

The residence in question was designed by Robert Anshen and Steven Allen in 1962 and has since been carefully maintained, with a few sensitive updates including a remodeled kitchen and an expanded master bedroom and bathroom. Measuring 1,774 square feet, the midcentury modern is nevertheless bright, spacious, and airy, with four bedrooms, two baths, and expansive common areas unfurling across a flowing floorplan.

An atrium (an Eichler staple) sets the stage upon entering and establishes indoor-outdoor living from the start. Sliding glass doors open onto the living room, where vaulted open-beam ceilings transition to the backyard, which can be seen through a wall of glass and clerestory windows. A brick fireplace anchors the space, while a new kitchen with breakfast bar and dining area flow from there.

Polished concrete floors are found in the common areas, and carpeting in the bedrooms. Outside, the backyard is a true Southern-California oasis featuring a kidney-shaped pool, patio, and a small lawn. For anyone looking to live that California Eichler life, this property awaits you. Located at 1770 N. Woodside Street, it’s offered at $985,000. Have a look.
